By BBN Staff:  Today, the Belize Audubon Society announced the closing of the Victoria Peak Trail for the 2018 Season.

The Victoria Peak Natural Monument was declared a Protected Area in 1998 for its uniqueness and aesthetic qualities.

In addition, the protection status ensures the survival of one of Belize’s few tracks of elfin woodland forest.

The spectacular journey to the summit of Victoria Peak (1,120 meters) entails a 27-kilometer hike through the jungles of the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, culminating with an impressive vista of the Cockscomb Basin in the Maya Mountains.

The Victoria Peak Trail officially opened on March 10, 2018, seeing 10 groups of 128 persons, until its 2018 season close on June 4th, 2018 – 95% of participants were Belizeans.

The Victoria Peak Trail is open during Belize’s dry season, February 1 – May 31.

The opening season, however, is contingent on the length of the rainy season of the specific year.

Though the 2018 Season to mountaineer the Victoria Peak Trail is now closed, tentative dates for the Victoria Peak season 2019 are available for booking.

To learn more about dates, costs, and logistics of how to register your group, please contact the Belize Audubon Society for more information.
