As I was trying to get there, my guide and I were hit by a tropical rain downpour, It caused a normally accessible creek to turn into an impassible raging river.

We visited the Valley of Desolation on our way to the Boiling Lake. Together, they make for an excellent hike (about 6 hours). Bring your camera and wear something you can swim in. Your shoes will get soaked.

So much to see and learn about. Don't touch anything without a guide's permission as some things will burn you! Cool change of pace as you hike to Boiling Lake

It takes on average 6 hours to hike to Boiling Lake and back which takes you through the Valley of Desolation. It is incredible to experience. Hurricane Erika really did change the trail. As such, I would recommend hiring a guide familiar with the hike....More
