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.

Did an out and back to the top of Caneel, the first peak and the view was worth the trek. Moderate is a fair rating as I've been on some that are much more of a climb. Took the trail down to Honeymoon Beach and Solomon Beach using Lind Point to get back to town. Great route if you don't have a car or are coming from the ferry.

Just did the lower on the way back from Honeymoon Beach and Solomon Beach. Both great spots, Solomons is more secluded, less busy, and has great snorkeling so definitely worth the stop. Rained this afternoon so trail was muddy but managed in chacos just fine.

Well maintained trail. Waterfall was beautiful after days of rain! Rained on our way back but trees provided cover. Lots of places to take a break around the falls but watch out for ants and the prickly weeds!

Great easy terrain trail with excellent reward at the "end"! Lots of little creek crossing but all manageable. Lots of rain in the past few days so waterwall was nice and flowing! Do not skip seeing it or taking a dip in the bay! Started to rain on our hike back up but the tree coverage helped. Trail was never too muddy to get by. Saw lots of hermit crabs on trail. Definitely lots of bees around the sugar mill so be cautious there. Mosquitoes, ants, drenched, sweaty, with the uphill on the back end, yet totally worth the reward.

Steep at first but the views are worth it! Start of trail right past mongoose junction in Cruz bay. Trail well marked.

Beautiful hike. Great canopy coverage the entire way. Petroglyphs worth the short hike off the trail to see beside a cool waterfall. The beach at the end of the trail is a worthy reward! Take lots of water and save some for the hike back up along with some energy.

Worth doing.

Nice trail through Virgin Islands national park. Great view from overlook. Mostly muddy through the jungle. Ends at honeymoon beach and swimming is a nice treat. There is a way to get there by golf cart, as well, so not as isolated as might otherwise be.

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.

Pretty trail with cool ruins and petroglyphs along the way. The beach is amazing and very quiet. Hardly anyone there. We took our snorkeling gear. Not much to see but we did see a huge spotted ray and some live conch in the seagrass. There is great potential for sea turtle there. Would do again for the beach.

Beautiful flat walk along the beach with bright turquoise water. Wear sneakers since it’s rocky with coral and also bring a towel to dry your feet off. You’ll want to swim and snorkel when you get to the end of the trail. Good living coral to see while snorkeling. We saw parrotfish, blue fish, sea urchins, brain coral, and more! You can also see herons. You’ll be in the sun so wear sunscreen and a hat. Any age could do this hike. Don’t try to do it in sandals.
