Explore the Island with the Barbados Hiking Association
by Karen Rollins Jan 9, 2023
Barbados is a small island, but it still contains some hidden natural gems, and one of the best ways to see them is on foot.
Throughout this year, the Barbados Hiking Association (BHA) is planning several morning and evening hikes which “explore the many beautiful sceneries, wildlife, history, vegetation and cultures of Barbados.”
This month, the schedule includes a ‘substance abuse foundation hike’ on 14 January starting from Verdun House in St John. There are four hikes planned throughout February and in March. On 5 April, a special moonlight hike will start off at Welchtown Plantation, St Peter.
The BHA’s hikes take place every Sunday morning at 6am and in the afternoon from 3.30pm (sharp!). Special hikes sometimes take place on different days of the week.
All hikes last for three hours and are divided into four groups; ‘Stop and Stare’, ‘Medium’, ‘Fast Medium’ and ‘Grin ‘n Bear. The evening hike is just one large group.

The Barbados Hiking Association is a non-profit organisation formed to encourage Barbadians and visitors to explore the island through hiking. It organises walks in conjunction with the Barbados National Trust.
