Take a Hike on St. John

The view from Murphy Great House

St. John has more than 20 miles of hiking trails throughout the Virgin Islands National Park. You can hike a short tenth of a mile trail to a windmill at Peace Hill, or you can hike more than two miles down a steep hill (and then back up again!) to visit the island’s petroglyphs at Reef Bay. Our hiking trails lead to beautiful beaches, historical sites and other interesting places. Some are short. Some are long. Some are easy. And some are a bit more difficult.

I’ve hiked almost every trail on this island, and I enjoy sharing details, including pics and directions, with all of you. The following are links to information on some of my favorite hikes here on St. John.
