    It is a route to the highest peak in Mauritius - Piton de la Petite Rivière Noire (Black River Peak) 828m. The trail is easy since it starts at a high elevation, but I still mark it as moderate for the following reasons ...

    An easy start, then it gets tougher and harder...a bit technical! Beginners can easily reach Mount Jacob, but the remainder of the track for regular hikers!

    From creve coeur to virgin peak was easy but then afterwards was more complicated due to the dense forest.
