The peace hill hike is okay. I’m mainly giving 5 stars because of the SMALLER trail that leads to a beautiful beach on this trail! When you’re hiking up, it’s on your right about halfway up! The trail is a little long and seems to not lead anywhere but then it opens up to a beautiful beach!

Beautiful payoff and fun hike!

Steep in places, but worth it for the amazing views. Watch out for hermit crabs on trail :)

a bit rocky, but a great hike to a wonderful beach. Took the Upper trail going to Honeymoon Beach, and the lower trail back to town.

this is a small .44 miles round trip trail off the bigger reef bay trail, petroglyphs are cool but the waterfall is dependent on water level (which is usually low), I'd recommend doing the reef bay trail combined with this one

super easy, quick and great views of the surrounding beaches! there is the ruin of an old windmill at the top

Short walk to the water’s edge where waves crash hard against the shoreline. No problems with dogs on the way in and a few barked as we left. Just stay off their property and motion like you are picking up a rock to throw at them and they will keep their distance.

Great trail to get a bit off the path within the NP...

Excellent Trail for being one of the best access points into the National Park...

The trail begins by ascending for a little under a mile at a moderately steep grade before reaching the summit of Caneel Hill, which has fabulous views of the entire Virgin Islands Archipelago. It then dips down and passes an overlook before ascending to the summit of Margaret Hill, which also has interesting views. After that, it descends moderately for a little over a mile, and ends by the entrance to Caneel Bay Resort. I would recommend hanging out at the resort (swimming, eating) before turning back. You can also take a taxi back to Cruz Bay if you are tired. A great hike, worth the effort.

Great easy walk to start our morning.

Stunning views from a deck at the top. Bring your picnic. The constant breeze keeps you cool enough. Slippery when wet. Path is rocky, were hiking shoes with good inserts.

Easy hike with a beautiful view at the end. It was super dry when we went and SO hot. Don’t forget your sunscreen!

This trail is hard but very rewarding. It's best to go early in the morning because as it gets later it gets very hot and humid! We had to learn that the hard way!

Nice trail. Slick when wet. Hiked the trail down several times. There is a bus stop on centerline road at the trailhead so we took the trail to Cinnamon Bay Campground (where we were staying) to save on taxi fares. Side trip up to American Hill worth the effort.

Cool rum still ruins and Taino Indian petroglyphs are a must see. Easy downhill 2.4 mile trek but after all that seafood and rum in Cruz Bay the night before, you get to work it off coming from sea level on Reef Bay back up to the parking area on Highway 10.

Pretty easy hike to the point overlooking Europa Bay. Beach is rocky, so no one else around.

Not sure if this is the same hike. We hiked the Magens Bay Nature Trail down to the beach, Magens Bay. The beach was amazing and the trail was really cool too. I'm not sure if we took the correct entrance. We got dropped off in the middle of the street and were skeptical but the hike was fun. We didn't see views until we reached the beach.

I thought this was a real nice short hike.

Very well-maintained and well-signed trail. Well worth the effort, with panoramic views from peak of Caneel Hill. Interesting flora

it was worth the trip. Many ruins to see along the way.

I did this trail hike/walk a little over a year ago, and I still have nostalgia for it on a regular. Super easy trail that leads to a paradise!! I wore flip flops to get there and it didn't even phase me, or my feet. Make sure you take a towel and your snorkeling gear, and plan to stay on that beach at least an hour or two! So you might wanna pack a light snack, too. So beautiful!! Can't wait to visit here again someday.

My wife and I got engaged at Salomon Beach, truly a beautiful place to hike and significant for us forever.

I hike the reef bay trail I defiantly recommend it. tons of wild life and ruins. very hard on the way back if you choose to go back the reef bay trail way.

Basically a continuous up or down 1100 foot 1.2 mile trail to Lameshur Bay. Rocky slightly overgrown with few view spots. Good for exercise but not very scenic.

on Leinster Bay Trail

Trail is more moderate if taken from Reef Bay trail.
Beach mildly Rocky but nice. Parking available if driving from Coral Bay. Few people.
