    At the intersection, turn left, go down to Anse Lévrier (3), continue to Anse à Voile (4), go up to the main path, turn left (5). Continue along the side of the road until you reach the Galets river. You will have magnificent views of the Anse à Voile and Lévier coves at the Morne à Lianes pass.

    Leave a small unmarked path on the left that leads to the Anse des Galets and cross the river (6). The path climbs towards the clearing which is used as a landing zone for helicopters and then descends towards the Trois-Bras river by passing under a small tunnel.

    Do not take the path that goes up to the right towards the Trois-Bras river falls, but turn left (7). Follow the river for 3m downstream, cross a ford and continue through a much wetter forest with huge chestnut trees and foothill river root woods. The path climbs steeply up the Petit morne. If the view is clear you can get a wonderful view of Grand'Rivière.

    At the intersection (8), climb to the right, pass the small pass and join the road below. Go up the road on the right and reach Grand'Riviere. You will go past the Sinai beach (9).
