Gorgeous steep hike from North Shore Road up to Centerline Road. The hurricanes have killed many trees and diminished the foliage on the island. This means that the views are more open and spectacular than ever before. Make sure and take the side trail to...More

This is a trail that can take you from main road north to the main road south. There are ruins and very old tomb stones. Very cool

Beautiful, but steep hike, worth it to see view of Cinnamon Bay. We climbed the rest of the way to the road, expecting another view, but no. Just road. Turn back after the view.

Very well preserved plantation ruins. Good signage and most of the trail is paved and relatively flat so it's accessible to everyone. There is ample parking directly across the road at Cinnamon Bay beach. There is also a small museum showing archeological finds from the...More
