Ram Head Trail, St. John

(4.8/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Take an adventurous hike along the 1.6 km (1 mi) rocky path that defines Ram Head Trail. A winding path along the coastal cliffs, the trail takes most guests one or two hours to complete and has a steep incline in parts. Notice its mottled character with the crimson tops of Turks Head Cactus. At the trail's furthest point you reach a lookout point 60.9 m (200 ft) above the Caribbean Sea, with views out to the horizon and the deep shoreline. Sunrise views from this point are particularly impressive. Be sure to take lots of water and sunscreen and wear closed-toe shoes.

  • Great views. It took us about an hour and a half from start to end but that's because we allowed tons of time for pictures and just to soak in the view. The trip back was about 30-45 minutes. Not the easiest trail, don't wear flip flops and bring some water. This was one of my favorite parts of my trip to the VI
