Piton Climb Without Booking Through Excursion.

I plan on getting a rental vehicle for a few days of exploring during our stay at Sandals Regency. I defiantly want to climb the Piton! Can I just show up to the Interpretive Center in Fonds Gens Libra, get a guide, and climb? How long of a drive is it from Regency to the trail head? Would it be easy to find the interpretative center in Fonds Gens Libra. If not, could someone provide driving directions please. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Drive to trailhead is about 2 hours from Sandals Regency or 40 minutes past Soufriere. You can get a guide at the trailhead. Easy to find if you drive up the West coast road and look for the sign for Gros Piton which will be on your right hand side at a fairly sharp bend in the road. Plan to be there about 7 am as it gets hot really soon after that and you won't want to be climbing in the heat of the day.
