This hike ends with a sweeping view of the waters from the southernmost tip of St John. It starts around Salt Pond and then works through some covering but eventually to pretty arid area. I took two water bottles and needed every bit of it!...More

This was an moderate hike with some really good views of salt pond bay and the surrounding islands. My wife and I did it in sandals and I would highly recommend some tennis shoes.

Early morning before the heat of the day. We hiked to the end and could look back at our rental house. It was like standing at the end of the world. Be sure to go to Drunk Bay also.

While we didn't do too many hikes while we were down in St. John, this one was our favorite. If you're going to do just one hike, do this one. Beautiful views along the trail to a rocky secluded beach with great snorkeling. The view...More

The views were beautiful. My only complaint is that at mid-day, this hike was exposed making it hot and tiring. It is a moderate hike, but the heat did give it a bit of a challenge. A portion of the trail is on a rocky...More
