Third Carbet Waterfall
Please note: a bylaw forbids access to the section after the platform and so to the 3rd Carbet Waterfall. This description is limited to the authorised sections, without the last part.
Footbridge + signs
Sierran palm and Arouma
River to cross and panel
On the other side is a panel with information about animals living in the water.
Crossroads and Candlewood
After 35 minutes on this path (and crossing a gully two-thirds of the way along), you arrive at a fork towards the 2nd Waterfall and a disused karbay (with no table). From this point, the descent towards the ONF platform begins. The trail stops here (municipal bylaw).
You go back the same way.
In this natural setting, you should be particularly careful and alert, since Guadeloupe is subject to natural risks. It is vital to act in a responsible way, so that everyone can enjoy the hike!
Please note: unsupervised car park.
