Hiked this afternoon and loved the view. This was a challenging trail for me but my walking stick really helped.

This trail rated easy is misleading for anyone with balance,knee or back issues. My girlfriend found boring and non attractive. And very difficult.

Good trail. Seems more like a walk at first. If you go passed the stairs and up it is more challenging. Good views!

Trail was cool, nice views. Beach on the other hand was smelly with tons of seaweed.

A little more difficult. It is old plantation road for some of the hike. You are half-way at Reef Bay where you'll find an amazing beach so take snorkel and mask. It is steep but open at the very beginning and the very end. Expect amazing views but these are rare with the canopy. Reef Bay Plantation at the bottom.

We did this prior to Hurricanes in 2017 and there was more coverage from sun. In 2019, almost no protection from sun, so bring water and sunscreen. Much of trail is on old plantation road and there are ruins at various stops along the way. Take snorkel and goggles (and aquasocks) for end of trail since yo can cool off as you swim around Waterlemon Cay. The trail head is a piece of plywood with purple spray painted arrow. Park in Coral Bay, walk up the gravel road by the church. Just about the time you're convinced you're lost, you'll see the trail.

We did this before the hurricanes in 2017. At that time it had decent canopy. Repeating the hike this year, is is very open with no ankle breakers. The park did a nice job of clearing. As noted by others, it is now very sun-exposed, so try to do first thing in the morning, and take sunscreen and plenty of water. Half way is Johnny Hole Trail, where you can either go back to your car, turn left on Johnny Hole and end up at Skinny Legs (Coral Bay) or right for a longer hike and end up on Leinster Bay trail (& snorkeling WaterLemon Cay). We have done it all ways, and it just depends on you mood, the heat, how much water you have, and if you have a plan to get back to your car.

There is a gate covering the entrance of the trail with a “No trespassing sign” ....but pay it no attention. The hike is a nice nature walk with some steep sections and not very challenging. The beach was incredible and we had it all to ourselves!! The only issue was the lack of shade on the beach and the scalding hot sand, but we put some towels out and were just fine. The water was amazing with lots of fish and some small rocks/reefs here and there. If you’re on St Thomas and looking for a local secret this is the place! We had lots of fun and it was an unbeatable beach.

Great view of the bay. Trail leads to Honeymoon beach, which is fantastic.

Easy hike with beautiful vista views.

The trail has some beautiful views of Cruz Bay! There are a few areas with uneven rocks and some incline, but I think the easy rating is fair. Honeymoon beach is beautiful, and the Lindpoint overlook is worth stopping at. Enjoyed this hike!

I started from Coral Bay by the church. There’s a bit of a trek up a steep dirt road to get to the actual trailhead. The trail had moderate shade, less as I neared Waterlemon Cay. I didn’t notice any biting insects. There were a few hermit crabs on the trail a surprising distance from the ocean. 0.3 miles before Watermelon Cay, there’s a side trail with a sign to “Large House” or something like that. I’d highly recommend taking it. It’s a short trail to the ruins of a large plantation house with an incredible panoramic view. I didn’t see any deer, but I did catch a glimpse of a mongoose.

This is a beautiful beach. If you can find parking nearby it is worth the stop. This isn’t a hike, it’s a stroll along the shore at the beach. Wear a bikini and reef safe sunscreen. Jump in for a snorkel. It’s all good.

Seriously, we walked this short trail after dinner in our sandals to see the sunset. Pretty views of the north side from the top and a spectacular place to watch the sun set. Perfectly level at the top. I bet they have yoga or painting classes up there. Looks like there is a little trail down to Trunk Bay too.

This easy trail takes you to a beautiful beach but also to Ram Head point which is beautiful!

Easy hike. Great views of the south side of the island; unobstructed views of the Caribbean Sea. Direct sunlight (no shade); nice tradewind breeze.

Overgrown, no signs, off the beaten path. Best beach on st thomas.

Wife and I enjoyed a short jaunt with our 3 and 4 year old. Pretty rocky in parts but nothing a preschooler can’t handle. Nice vista of the bay.

This was a good trail but the majority of the incline in the beginning has loose rocks which are difficult with my ankles. Other than that it was enjoyable. There are many different arms you can choose while on the trial. We did the petroglyph arm and the arm on the reef bay trail to the factory. STJ never fails to produce beautiful views.

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.

Super easy little trail. It started raining in the middle so it was slippery because of the rocks.
