Carpenter Rock Trail Feb 16, 2008
In my opinion the most interesting of all the trails in the Nelson’s Dockyard National Park and also the most difficult to walk on. It takes you along the coastline with all its cliffs, its plants and also the usual goats. I walked it downhill from the barack ruins close to the “Lookout” to Fort Charlotte, close to Galleon Beach. The path starts quite idyllic with a wonderful view of the sea. As you continue the direction of the trail, you’ll come to an old, abandoned 19th century graveyard. Although this place is interesting in its own way, it means that you are on the wrong way. Return to the place where you got the last wonderful view on the ocean and look downhill. If you see the white dots there, you’ve found the rest of the path. And it will not be the last time for you to think “Do they really want me to walk THAT way?”. A walk downhill to the cliffs give you an even better view of the landscape than the one you had before uphill. When you reached a rock pointing into the ocean and there’s no possibility to walk further downhill, continue into the landscape with the yellow plants. I have no idea how these plants are called, but they make the orientation with the white dot system quite difficult and you’ll surely lose the path a couple of times. If you do so, no problem. Just walk to the rocks on the field of yellow plants, and climb them up. That’s one of the most difficult points among all the pathes in the National Park – but here you are at the famous “Carpenter Rock”. After passing this point, take time to enjoy the landscape and see where you have walked around. The ruins of a gun battery, making up the main part of Fort Charlotte, marks almost the end point of the trail. What I can say is that this hiking trail was among the hightlights of my whole Antigua trip.
