This is a point to point trail (2.4 miles each way) that joins Cruz Bay to Northshore road. At the top of Margaret Hill, you have stunning views of the island and ocean around you.

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.

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

We hiked this trail on Oct 6, 2012. We went out this mountain trail and hiked back along the coast. The mountain part offered great views of St. John island and the Carribean. If you are in this part of the Carribean this is a must hike. Just take plenty of water the temperature in Oct got to 89 and the humidity was in the mid 90%. Needless to say we took our time and took many breaks. All in all a great trail.
