Take a taxi ride around the island and up to the peak. Stop for a drink and a sandwich at Hog Heaven. The view is spectacular.

Thanks to previous reviews, we took the second trail which was the shorter one. It only takes 15-20 minutes if you are in decent shape. The day we went, the view from up top was less than ideal as visibility was low. Stay in the middle of the trail so the prickly bushes don't get you and wear tennis shoes... More

One of the most beautiful places I've ever visited! The cave baths and the breathtaking beaches were definitely the highlight of my visit to the Virgin Islands. Counting days to visit the Caribbean once again!

The hike to Gorda Peak is wonderful. There are two paths-- a lower one, which claims to be a 50 minute hike, and a higher entrance, which is a 25 minute hike. Both hikes take less time if you are reasonably fit. Go at dusk and bring a flashlight to enjoy an amazing sunset and panoramic views of the entire... More

If you want to be in contact with nature, this is the place. It is like a dry forest in the top of a mountain.

Rent a jeep to travel the entire island...it's small and a great way to spend 1/2 a day. Take lots of beverages...hot and dusty but nice to see all the varied landscape on the island.

Beautiful! Our boat ride from the St. Thomas Ritz was long but the staff was awesome! Once you get to the Baths, take the Devils Alley trail down as it's all downhill and then enjoy the clear waters and caves. Head back up to top of the hill on the easier hill and enjoy some cocktail and yummy beach food... More

This was perhaps a quarter mile hike. The veiws were awesome on the top lookout platform! Saw some snake skins so be on the look out. This time of year is typically pretty dry so you be able to see all through the woods.

About 1/2 hour hike up the mountain to rainforest. Orchids, bromeliads about 8 feet in diameter! At the peak there is a viewing platform which gives amazing views of the entire horizon and all the other surrounding islands. Go on a clear day for the best views. Very hot, bring water to stay hydrated while hiking

Signs says 25 minutes and I think it took us about 15. For the upper trail you can park on the side of the road (it took us a while to figure that out). Also it's largely shaded, but plan for HEAT.
