St John Hiking & Trails
Adventurous Hikes and Trails.
If relaxing your troubles on the beach is not really your style, try your hand at one of the many great hiking trails St John has to offer. You will likely run into some wild goats and donkeys, but with over 75% of the island being protected national park, the island is also sanctuary to a plethora of birds, lizards, and insects. Also keep an eye out for mongoose as you hike your way to some of the most breathtaking views the Caribbean has to offer.
Located in the Virgin Islands National Park, the Cinnamon Bay Nature Trail has exciting sugar plantation ruins, and the Bourdeaux Mountain Trail leads you to the highest point on St John. At an elevation of 1,277 feet above sea level, it promises to be one of the most spectacular views in the Caribbean.
The Reef Bay Trail is a popular route for locals, surrounded by forestlands, sugar mills, ancient petroglyph rock carvings, a reflection pool with a spring-fed waterfall, and a relaxing finish at Genti Bay.
