Booked a guided walk through the tourist office in St Helena. The guide Carlos was excellent and although the trip was spoilt by the rain he really did try to give us a good time and share his enthusiasm for the park.

Visited the Cloud Forest Reserve in early April of 2018 with my wife and daughter. We did the Sendero Nuboso hike in an afternoon. There are wonderful views from several viewpoints, particularly the Great Divide.

This is a great place to see wildlife and take a nice hike. There are hummingbird gardens right outside of the park that are also worth a stop.
