This is not an incredibly easy hike and we were glad we didn't have our 6 year old with us, but it can be done by people in reasonable shape and the views at the end are definitely worth it! Plan a day of it and bring your stuff to enjoy Saltpond Beach afterward!

This was a picturesque hike to a cliff area with amazing views of the southside of St. John and the open ocean. Small width but mostly obvious trail leading from a parking lot off of Salt beach. Good easy hike with a variety of terrain. It is windy by the saddle and be careful near the cliffs.

Went on the Rams head hike with my husband, son & his friend. I had heard to get there early before the heat of the day. That's great advice. We got to the salt pond parking around 8:45 or 9:00. It's a pretty long drive to the parking lot as it's quite a bit past coral bay on typically twisty... More

A great hike with some unique scenery and beautiful vistas on the far end of the island. This is much more of a true hiking trail-uneven rocky terrain requiring good shoes. Things to know: -drive to far side of the island and park at the sign for salt pond beach -walk downhill across rocky ground to the nice beach -follow... More

I highly recommend this hike for anyone able to do so. When reaching the very end of the hike is so rewarding! The views are spectacular and is something you definitely won't see somewhere else. A local mentioned that there was a volcano located on the left side once reaching the mid-peak spot, we searched for it but unable to... More

After a long morning snorkeling Salt Pond Bay, we set out for a late afternoon hike along the sandy beach, a short wooded walk that opened out onto the blue stone beach. Then up the path to the most wonderful views of cliffs, St. John, and the BVIs. It was stunning. Don't miss!

This hike is not for the faint of heart on St. John. It is about 2 miles long round trip and involves several climbs. HOWEVER!!! The views and the very secluded black rock beach should not to be missed. Absolutely awesome!!

If you like to hike this is a must see. Trail head is by the Concordia Eco-Resort on the east end of the island, so it requires a bit of a drive if you're over in Cruz Bay but it's well worth it. This hike has it all... forest, a great beach, lots of elevation, and views at the end... More

We did the hike during the hottest time of the day. It is easily doable, but still more recommendable to start early when it is cool! We luckily had plenty of water with us! When you get closer to the top of Ram Head, the hike gets easier in the sense that there is a nice cooling breeze coming from... More

This hike is so beautiful. Great length with unique and stunning terrain. Make sure you wear hiking shoes and bring plenty of water as it gets HOT! We loved this trail so much we visited it twice while on the island. Not to be missed and does not take a long time to visit. After your hike you can swim... More
