Killer trail. Serious elevation change. Took about an hour down at a good pace and a little over that to get back. It was about 80 degrees out and 100% humidity. Entrance is off the road by the rock wall, see pictures, a handful of street parking right by it. We were drenched and feeling the burn by the end. Not for all ages that’s for sure. Great views and worth it. Hit the petroglyphs trail towards the bottom. Worth it to see. And the sugar mill ruins at the very end before the beach is very cool. The beach is okay, rocky course sand and rocky bottom going out of the water. You’ll need water shoes if you want to get in.

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!

Easy hike to a quiet and secluded beach. There’s no cover on the trail so sport a hat and sunscreen (reef safe if you’re going for a dip in the ocean, please). You can do it in flip flops but there are some rocky part that would be easier with shoes or at least strapped-in sandals. Solomon beach is small and I was alone so it was perfect for solitude. The beach has lots of pebbles and is rockier than Honeymoon beach so I wore water shoes.

I did Upper Lind in the way to Honeymoon Beach and Lower Lind on the way out because I was wiped. I did it in flip flops which was okay but if you do Upper Lind, hiking shoes or tennie runners are recommended. It’s just barely more than what I would consider easy but Lower Lind was a breeze. As other reviewers have noted, there’s no shade so be sure to wear sunscreen (reef safe if you’re planning for a dip in the ocean, please). Great sandy beach and clean, clear water but it’s salty so have some extra water on hand to clean your eyes and face.

Take the side trips on the right. Beautiful secluded beach. Also lots of hives with unknown occupants and some really large poop....

This was a great little hike down to Solomon Beach. It is rocky so wear sturdy shoes. Also, although we were hiking through trees, the sun still beat down on us and it got HOT. Bring plenty of water. The reward is the amazing beach and snorkeling at the end. We brought a beach tent and were so glad we did because we lost all shade in the afternoon. The scramble back up may be difficult for some so take your time and enjoy the trail and beach.

It’s a ok trail nice beaches our two 8 year olds made it with out issue rocks r Trail with some bit steps

Nice trail, the lookout point has a great view but be sure to take the off-shoot with the rock ledge....I almost missed it! Amazing sunset sitting on the rocks.

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.

This trail peels off of L’Esperance and takes you to St. John’s one and only baobab tree.

Easy walking trail through the salt marsh on a newly rebuilt boardwalk and on the dirt trail surrounding the area. Great for birdwatching. Great for kids or those with disabilities that may prevent more strenuous hikes. It is not ADA accessible. You will see a variety of wildlife, the beautiful Francis Beach and some plantation ruins.

This trail is beautiful and has something for everyone. It will give you a real sense of the park.

We hiked this trail with a 1, 3 and 5 year old. It was easy enough on the way down but a challenge on the way up. It took us 3 hours. I wish I had brought more water, bug spray and lunch so we could have taken more time on the trail. We also found out after that the parks service does this hike with a boat out option avoiding the difficult return climb out.

Perfect way to get to a couple beautiful beaches by way of hiking from Cruz Bay. Not a bad trail. While I can see why it is rated no more than Easy, hikers most comfortable with Easy should know that there are some pretty rocky areas, often on incline / decline. Don’t be discouraged, just be prepared and wear shoes. We Just did the lower. Upper would likely have better views, but we also spent several hours on the beach and were a bit drained.

Lovely hike with incredible views of Lameshur Bay, salt pond and the south side of St John. Up and down terrain, some loose rock. 2/3 in sun. Some prickly shrubs. Sneakers or hiking shoes recommended. Took trail to petroglyths. There it’s an incredible opportunity to see the stone carvings. You can walk along the rocks and get very close to the carvings. A small fresh water pond with fish is also there. Saw a mongoose there too. Highly recommend this hike. Among my all time favorites for views, ease and historical value.

Swam into the bay from a boat and started from the beach. A warm and tropical day for hiking, but with lots of shade it was not unpleasant. Saw deer, a couple of mongoose, lots of hermit crabs, and fish in the pools at the petroglyphs. Not many people out, so the solitude was really appreciated. An easy all age jaunt.

Upper tail has nice vista of Cruz Bay. Lower Lind provides a nice loop. Then stop at Honeymoon Beach for a dip. Beach has beach service!

Nice 3.0 mile out and back. Rock and root, boots or strong sneakers. Small sandy beach with not much traffic. bring surf socks and towel for a dip in the bay on the return. A few hermit crabs on the trail so watch where you step. e even saw a deer. dime nice views at elevation.

Glad we brought our hiking boots, but did see folks in sneakers. Don't try in flip flops.

Great easy coral and stone trail along the bay, gentle breezes, swimming opportunities, few people. My favorite on St John. recommend at least sneakers, we loved having our hiking boots. Bring surf socks for swimming. Annandale ruins are right there too.

Great views at the top of Caneel Hill and Margaret Hill are a reward for some hard hiking. The grade is steep and the footing is tricky. The views are great, particularly from the platform atop Caneel Hill. On Margaret Hill, look for the large rock slabs at a cutout on the right — a great place to relax and take in the sights.

Super steep if you start from the main rd! 4x4 up as far as you can will cut the hike down from 3+ tough miles to 2.5+ more manageable miles! FYI

Great little loop that hits ruins, forest, beach and salt pond - great for birding.
