Went during the middle of the day so it was hot. Took a little detour off the trail at one point.

HikingGreat!

Pretty incredible. The kids couldn’t make the ascent to Ram’s Head Point, but we did about 70% of the trail. Bring a extra H2O on a hot day. The trail leads to a rocky beach where you follow some cairns to get back to the trail up the hill. We really loved this experience.

Nature tripsGreat!

This was an extremely beautiful trail and highly recommended. We went early in the morning so sun was not that hot. Make sure you find the other half of the trail that takes you to the cliffs!

Amazing trail. Moderate difficulty due to elevation change, rocky terrain, and full sun exposure the whole way. Salt Pond beach is at the very beginning and a beautiful sandy beach with clear water. Great way to end the hike and chill out. The view at the top is worth it. Great hike!

Nice trail. Can be hot if you’re not prepared for it at the wrong part of the day. Hiked there and then hit the beach we passed on the way in on our return to find a rare urchin, some conch, giant fish and a group of baby turtles. I dug it.

Great hike. We spent about an hour and 45 mins taking our time. Great breeze at the top. Views to BVIs, St Croix, St Thomas, and of course back towards St John. Very rocky - would recommend real shoes.

Great trail. A lot to see. Beaches,islands,cactus and cliffs. Definitely worth going. The ride out from Cruz bay takes about 45 min. Plenty of parking. Does get hot but that’s expected being in the Caribbean. Windy in some areas, that offers some relief from the heat. Hiked along 2 beaches and salt pond. Swam at the first beach on the way back. Beautiful beach. Could be the most underrated beach on the island. Would do it again next time I’m here.

We enjoyed the different terrain and views along this trail. And there is at least shade until you leave the rock beach, then it is nothing but cacti. We were surprised how windy it was at the peak so be careful if you get close to an edge! The peak is on a cliff. We did take video footage of the trail if you are trying to decide if it is a hike to add to your list: https://youtu.be/moMuoQQ2N_A

Hiked Ram Head to watch the sunrise. Cloud cover was not ideal, so a bit of a letdown from that standpoint. Trail was great before and after sunrise. Good time had by all! Love St. John USVI!!!

Plenty of parking at trail head. You should take sunscreen and extra water, noting there is very little cover for the entirety of the hike. Wear decent shoes, noting it can be rocky and loose in some areas you want to explore.

Ram’s Head was our favorite trail in the USVI. Definitely do it in the morning or evening, because it has zero shade. For a rather short hike, you get pleasantly varied terrain including beach, a salt flat, and a mountainside full of cacti. It’s very windy at the top. The views at the end are some of the best you’ll find in the Virgin Islands.

Sandy beach along the way then a smooth pebble beach. Listen to the water as it goes out. Beautiful views along the way and at the top. Wind coming up the V’s in the mount will take your breath

A good hike that takes you out to a very scenic overlook/outcropping. Like most people say, the trail very exposed and can be hot. The ocean breeze can pick up at the top of the point.

Hiking

This hike starts with a descent to Saltpond Bay, then ascends over a ridge and drops down to another beach. After that, it makes the ascent to Ram’s Head, a rocky peninsula perched 150 feet above the sea. From there, there are great 360 views of sea and islands. The hike is not very shaded, and is therefore somewhat hot, but it is definitely worth it.

Loved this trail. Cool pebble beach about half way through. The trek is worth the hike throughout, but my favorite was when we got to the cliffs. Full 360 view. Gorgeous!
