Jogging and hiking on Grand Cayman.
The Mastic Trail, part of the Mastic Reserve, is two miles long, takes about 2½ to 3 hours, and is ideal for hiking in Cayman's wild interior. The woodland, evolved undisturbed for the last 2 million years, offers a rich abundance of birds, rare trees and animals, with guided walks available daily. Call Geddes Hislop of Silver Thatch Excursions at (345) 945-6588, or e-mail him at silvert@hotmail.com for more information about a guided tour. Geddes has a degree in Wildlife Biology, and really knows his stuff. For joggers, Beach Bay Road, near Turtle Nest Inn, is a route followed regularly by those wanting a good surface with little traffic. And, of course, there's the beach almost all around Grand Cayman, with public access guaranteed everywhere.
