Reef Bay Trail, Virgin Islands National Park
Categories: Hiking Trails, Nature & Parks, Outdoor Activities
Weave your way through fresh water pools, tropical undergrowth and sugar mill ruins at Reef Bay Trail. Search the base of the 12.1 m (40 ft) waterfall for mysterious petroglyphs, ancient rock carvings dating back to the indigenous Taino people who walked these paths one thousand years ago. Venture both up and down the challenging 4.8 km (3 mi) trail from the Centreline Road entrance, or for the less experienced climber, make the descent on a Virgin Islands National Park tour, which includes a charter boat trip back.
