Most of cactus have fallen over but good to see new starts coming out on them. Views are more expansive. Ruins more visible climbing trail. Trail is clear and alot of work has been done to clear.

Unless you intend to snorkel when you get there, there isn't much to look forward to when you arrive. The hike, to me, wasn't worth the reward you usually feel when you get to the destination (think Ram Head...the magnificent view from the top)..

This started out as a planned half day activity and we ended up using the whole day! We did the walk just from East End Road to Brown Bay. I'm not sure if that's officially Brown Bay trail, but we hiked up a mountain and...More

This was our first hike as we wanted to take an easy route the first time. An easy 20 minute walk (carrying beach chairs!) on a rocky dirt trail ends at a spectacular and desolate sandy beach. The beach has some natural debris but the...More

Twenty minute hike but well worth the effort. Brown Bay had the best snorkeling we experienced on the island. And we were the only people there.

This was my favorite hike on St. John. It's not too difficult and leads to a beautiful beach with dozens of conch shells and star fish. If you go before noon, it's highly likely you'll have it all to yourself. Sometimes the locals stop by...More

Relatively easy hike for the morning. Beautiful beach, which was only inhabited by one person when we arrived. Great views.

I only made it part way down the trail due to my hiking partner getting tired. This trail is on the dry side of the island, so it feels more like hiking through Utah than hiking through tropical jungle. It's near Haulover Bay, which can...More

the first part is very steep, but well worth the climb. Beautiful views toward the BVI islands and a nice calm beach and not many people know about this area, sometimes only 2 or 3 other people.
