4.5
#1 of 11 in Trails in U.S. Virgin Islands
Get far-flung at Point Udall, the easternmost point of the United States of America. Admire the sundial monument erected in 2000, marking the location where American soil first sees the sunrise. The vantage point offers sweeping views around the island, as well as blue, reef-laden waters along the coast. From the monument, follow an unofficial trail of medium difficulty to the point.

  • We traveled there with great expectance - but was highly disappointed. In-fact we 3 were the only persons there!  more »
  • Interesting as the eastern most point of US. Not a lot to see, but a nice drive to the site and a nice monument.  more »
  • The drive out to point Udall has many great vistas, and the monument at the end of the island is worth heading out there for. Great views and dramatic waves on the beaches below.  more »

  • We visited Point Udall because it is the easternmost point on United States soil. The scenery is unbelievably beautiful here, which gave us another reason to stop. The Millennium Monument is also interesting -- basically a giant sundial -- but I'm taking one star off because of the graffiti which detracts from it. It's definitely worth coming here if you get the opportunity.
  • Amazing location! Great to see the stars at night as well as a ton beautiful scenery during the day time! Was warned by locals though to be careful from wild dogs at night and shady people try to break in cars as well as rob people... I saw none of that though
  • The view of East End Bay and Goat's Foot Hill are breathtaking. I love the drive to the point, and walking dizzily along the stone wall.
  • Beautiful views from the eastern most point of the territorial United States. The monument has seen better days but it's worth a stop if you are visiting STX.
  • This is one of those places you have to visit on Saint Croix simply to say that you've been there. That said, it is a fun place to go, with some nice hiking along the ridge and down to the beaches to the south. We had a great morning poking around here!
