    7 Crossing Place Trail Hike, Middle Caicos

    Crossing Place Trail Hike, Middle Caicos

    A National Trust Heritage site, Crossing Place Trail is a coastal path established in the 18th century by plantation settlers and slaves. Today, the path’s eight kilometers of hiking and biking trails follow the old path from the village of Lorimers to the place where islanders crossed the sandbars to trade with the inhabitants of North Caicos long ago. The trail leads along coastal headlands, past beaches, cave formations, and inland bush, with gorgeous views of the coastline along Mudjin Harbour and Norbellis Coves. It is fairly exposed, so be sure to bring plenty of water and sun protection, and it’s also a good idea to wear sturdy shoes and long pants, as the trail is rocky and overgrown in some areas.
