We started at the Annaberg Ruins on the Leinster Bay Trail, a nice walk along the water. The Johnny Horn is my favorite hike so far on STJ because of the views...amazing! The dirt road on the other side of the trial is pretty steep and somewhat slippery because of the loose rocks and gravel. I didn’t see the trail marked on what is supposed to be the beginning in Coral Bay so I can see why others have had trouble finding it. If you want to start on the CoralBay side then turn left at the road next to the big church that’s on the way to Skinny Legs. Just start walking and you’re on the trail.

You definitely wanna do this trail earlier in the day, as once you get up on the mountain there is no wind! Also bring extra water. The views from the great house are totally worth it!

Fastest way to Leister Bay if walking from Coral Bay. Traveling South from Coral Bay we accessed the trail via a fairly steep dirt and rock road. The road was a bit steep on the return trip with loose rock. So definitely need grippy shoes. Once over the peak of the hill heading North the trail narrows to single track with a bit of briars and some steep slick parts.
There are a few parts of the trail that have views of Leister Bay, Tortola BVI, and few Cays. The ruins are great photo ops.

There are some steps parts to this trail. When we hiked we didn't see any marking for the trail in Coral Bay which made it a bit more challenging to find the trail. There are several ruins on the trail. One that provides a nice view in all directions. The other is near Waterlemon Bay. It makes for some fun exploring. We saw lots of hermit crabs on the trail.
