Grand Etang National Park
About Grand Etang National Park, Concord
Grand Etang Lake is a crater lake in an extinct volcano. It is located on the island of Grenada, in Saint Andrew Parish. Evidence suggests that the Grand Etang Lake is connected to Kick 'em Jenny, an active submarine volcano to the north. This is because when Kick Em Jenny was observed bubbling, so too were the waters in Grand Etang Lake. The Grand Etang Lake is 1,800 feet (550 m) above sea level and it is one of the two crater lakes on the island (the other being Lake Antoine). The lake is approximately 20 feet deep and 36 acres in area. One is able to discover distinct eco-zones because of the park's varied elevation. Guided tours are available. A self-guided hike around the azure colored lake along a trail goes past waterfalls and through jungle. Tropical birds, tiny bright-chartreuse lizards, a variety of orchids, and armadilloes can be seen. Mount Qua Qua can be seen across the lake. Trail hikes range from 15 minutes to 4 hours. Mona monkeys can also be seen overhead in the forest. Grand Etang Lake is represented on the base of the Coat of arms of Grenada.Wikipedia

There is a small fee to have access to the park, then you can hire a guide to take you on a hike. We hired a guide to take us to the Seven Sisters Falls. Well worth it. It was a bit of work because of the multiple elevation changes. 2 recommendations: wear proper footwear for a hike, and wear either high socks or long pants. You don't want to learn about the razor-like grass the hard way.
Lovely view especially from the top. Lovely fishes in the water. Just magical
beautiful lake. peaceful. mini hiking trail as well.
This place is pretty unique for Grenada, and considering it's size and vast amount of different options for where to go, and what to do, you could probably spend a week here doing all the different hikes and seeing the monkeys. Now this place isn't actually full of tourists everywhere like most "cool" places in Grenada, although that might be due to the weather, it rains a lot here. (I'd check the weather beforehand) The monkeys are really cool although I wouldn't count on them being there when you arrive, I'm pretty sure I just got lucky. However, they are awesome if you do luckily see them, they will actually come right up to you and grab fruit right out of your hand and eat it in front of you. (I'd bring a few mangos just in case) It isn't actually prohibited to feed them either, the park actually encourages it, there's a sign near the front that says: Help the monkeys by feeding them fruit. The hikes are pretty fun, some could be very challenging, some might be easy, I guess it depends on what you want to do. If it was raining recently before you show up the trails will probably be muddy, so I's bring some boots if you have them. If you're looking for a harder hike, I'd recommend going up the mountain or hiking around the lake, (shoreline trail) as those are the harder ones to do. If you're looking for something easier I'd hike to the seven sisters falls, as it's only a thirty minute hike and it's not to hard. I'd also recommend if you like fish to go down to the lake, it's really fun just to walk out onto the dock and feed them bread and start a big feeding frenzy. (Bigger chunks pf bread get better fish and a bigger crowd) As well as feeding the monkeys, feeding the fish is also not prohibited, so don't worry. When I went there was quite a bit of people at the lake, so that might be something to think about. Other than the fish though, there isn't anything else really to do at the lake, they don't let you fish or swim in it, so I wouldn't bother staying there too long. Overall, if you're looking for a good fun, or challenging hike and you like seeing the Grenada wildlife, I'd definitely recommend this place for you.
