The Space Mountain Falls

Space Mountain Falls is a system of waterfalls, each plunging violently down; a well deserved reward for any traveler successfully hiking the several hours each way required. When travelling to this waterfall, expect to be exhausted, so plan for this amazing site to also be your campsite.

These mountain falls are lined with large boulders that allow hikers to get up close and personal to the water, while also serving as the only way to climb down with the water fall. Despite the abundance of rocks, the scenery is not gray, but green from the lush rain forest surrounding the waterfall.

Location

The Space Mountain Falls is situated in Rosalie, a neighborhood near Grand Fond; it's to the east-northeast of Roseau.

There is only one land route to this waterfall, and it is a long and difficult hike. From the Three Rivers Lodge, it is a several hour hike into the rain forest and mountains, followed by a slow but steady climb down: boulder by boulder until reaching the bottom. Once here, the way you came is the only way back, so come prepared with a full two day's worth of supplies.
