Of all the roads you take, some should be dirt.
The Mountain Pine Ridge Reserve is full of roads and natural trails that are definitely off the beaten path. These rich red clay pathways lead you through a spectacular landscape riddled with awe-inspiring waterfalls. Granite hillsides filled with pristine ravines, rivers, natural pools, picturesque streams and majestic cascades, are found amongst a carpet of pine trees that have stood the test of time.
Established in 1944, The Mountain Pine Ridge Reserve covers an area of approximately 300 miles. It is the oldest and largest protected forest in the country. Tucked away in the Maya Mountains, it is roughly a 3-hour drive from Belize City. Its remote location makes for an intimate and unspoiled experience.
