Middleham Falls

Located inside Morne Tios Pitons National Park, this large waterfall is the iconic rain forest waterfall; complete with lush trees, moss covered rocks, and the rumble of water pounding into a pool, creating a thick spray of mist. The exotic waterfall is only part of the sight to see, as the journey to it will bring you past old coffee plantations as well as a collapsed lava tube; a geological wonder that may have helped create the island itself.

Middleham Falls is a waterfall three-hundred feet high. The sheer mass of the falling water creates a shroud of mist around the base, adding to the intrigue. Luckily, the pool the water fills is relatively large, so the mist does not hamper any adventurous spirits that wish to jump in and swim around the falls, just be careful as the edges of the pool are lined with large rocks.

Location

Middleham Falls can be found toward the center of the island of Dominica, 1.7 miles north of Wotten Waven; it is four miles (six kilometers) to the northeast of Roseau.

There are both walking and driving routes to Middleham Falls. Located closer to the west coast of the island, taking Roseau's Valley Road will take you into the right direction, though directions from locals can better point you in the right direction. If driving, it may be safe to have an off road vehicle, as the terrain can be rough around the waterfall. If walking, the trail for the most part can be completed with ease, with only a few rough areas of steep inclines and declines.
