Extract from 'The Boiling Lake Hike’

Across the river the trail gets tougher as it climbs steeply towards the top of Morne Nicholls. After a further 45 minutes there is a circular clearing at the summit where, on a clear day, there are spectacular views across the Morne Trois Pitons National Park and the lands beyond. To the west is Roseau, to the north Morne Micotrin and behind it Morne Trois Pitons itself. To the east is the ridge of the Grande Soufriere Hills, to the south is Morne Watt, and to the southeast is the steam rising from the Valley of Desolation and the Boiling Lake. About five minutes or so before you reach this summit, there are open views down to the forest canopy on the right. It is worth pausing here for a little while as you frequently see jaco parrots in flight.
