Bath Fountain–Bowden Pen Trek

Hiking in Bath

This one-day trek, a former Maroon trading route – for experienced hikers only – leads from Bath Fountain up over Cunha Cunha Gap to Bowden Pen. It's a steep but scenic 9km forest route, crossed by streams and waterfalls. With luck, you'll spot giant swallowtails – the largest butterflies in the Americas. Obtain Sheets 19 (St Thomas parish) and 14 (Portland parish) of the Ordnance Survey 1:12,500 map series from the Survey Department for more detailed information, or hire a guide from the JCDT.
