Run The Planet is proud to introduce our new affiliate Run.com, the best running route resource on the web. If you are looking for a new Roseau running route, or want to share your favorite Roseau running routes with the rest of the word, Run.com is the place to be.
Behind Dominica's tiny Capital, Roseau, lies the Botanical Gardens, ideal for running, from which Jack's Track takes you up a steep forested hillslope to a splendid lookout. Running inland from the Botanical Gardens is a road (with little traffic) which follows the Roseau Valley for about 4 miles to Papillote Wilderness Retreat & Nature Sanctuary, from where a forested trail continues approx 1.5 miles to Trafalgar Falls. For the energetic, about half way to Trafalgar, smaller roads ascend the valley sides to Morne Prosper & Wotton Waven on the south side & on the north side, to Laudat (elevation 2,000 ft), gateway to the Trois-Pitons National Park, from where you can hike or "fellrun" to Titou Gorge, Middleham Falls, the summit of Morne Trois-Pitons (4,550 ft), Freshwater Lake, Boerie Lake or (the world's largest) Boiling Lake.
