There’s some scenic, safer running in Le Morne. The area is popular for its scenic public beach, and for the Le Morne Trail, a path that passes by several resorts and then along the water around the Baie des Kouillons.
La Morne Trail. 6 km one-way, flat. Access a path at La Morne Beach and follow the road/path, passing several resorts for 2.6 km to the tip of the peninsula. Continuing east on the more dedicated trail section, it’s another 2 km to the eastern trailhead, and 3 km to where the road/trail meets the B9 Highway. It’s possible to use the B9 to complete a loop of Le Morne peninsula, but note there could be traffic and there’s no sidewalk/shoulder. ROUTE MAP
