Ram's head is a great hike, but is exposed to a lot of sun. 2 great beaches along the way. Amazing views!

First part is all along shore and rocky. Second part after Blue Cobblestone seems easier. Make sure you take enough water. View is the reward

The views are gorgeous from Ram Head Trail, but be sure to go early in the day! The hiking is mostly unshaded and the heat can get to you!

This hike is challenging over the rocks of Salt Pond and then the Cobblestone beach. But enjoy the journey. It’s windy up there but I have never seen such amazing views. Wear close toed shoes. No flip flops for this one.

Truly the most beautiful site at the end of this trail. Do go early in the day if it is going to be sunny as there is not any shade and it is mostly all up hill climbing.

Superb views await you at the end of this relatively short, but intense hike on Ram's Head. It was one of the favorite things we did during our vacation to St. John!

The hike to Rams Head starts at Salt Pond. The hike is not easy but not difficult, parts of the trail are rocky. The beginning can be warm but when you reach the top the sea breeze is outstanding. The vegitation is more arid with...More

This hike ends with a sweeping view of the waters from the southernmost tip of St John. It starts around Salt Pond and then works through some covering but eventually to pretty arid area. I took two water bottles and needed every bit of it!...More

I loved this hike in Saint John! This is one of my favs! I was a little confused on where it starts but you literally just keep walking along the beach until you hit the dirt. I went the other way were the trail signs...More
