Description

This trail connects the North Shore of St. John to Coral Bay. The best way to access it is from Leinster Bay Trail. The Brown Bay Trail spur trail leads further towards the east end of St. John and offers some great views and snorkeling.

Johnny Horn Trail is mostly kept open and clear by foraging feral donkeys and goats. Getting closer to Coral Bay the trail becomes somewhat steep and more difficult. After about a 10 min run, the trail ends at the Moravian Church, just a short distance from the shops, restaurants and VITRANS 'bus stop.'

Flora & Fauna

The reward after completing the Johnny Horn Trail from Leinster Bay to Coral Bay was a drink at Skinny Legs. How do you find it? Turn left at the goats!
