Segment 13 of the Waitukubuli National Trail is much dryer than all other segments and introduces the northern coastline of Dominica. It is 6.8 km long and starts at Penville ending at Capuchin. It is said to be a moderate hike requiring approximately four (4) hours to complete the segment. There is a volcanic terrain which is covered with dry forested woodland and traverses a steeped area in history and culture.
During a hike on Segment 13 one can take a view of the French Islands of Marie Galante, The Saints and Guadeloupe. The Tafia Falls is also located on the Segment. Segment 13 has its own rich biodiversity with singing birds, jumping frogs, colourful and radiant bloom of flowers, crawling insects and towering trees.
The Segment culminates at the Canna Heritage Park in capuchin where an Interpretation Facility is currently being constructed.
