“A great out-and-back trail for those staying at the Cinnamon Bay Campground.”— Jon Eichner
The trail starts off fairly steep and will continue to move through the forests of St. John at a sustained grade. Though not very long, this trail can pack a punch, and you'll be navigating on a natural surface that includes many roots and rocks.
Once you've been ascending for about a mile, you'll have reached the high point of the trail. You'll find a spur trail at the top that leads to plantation ruins, which can be an interesting side trip. The ruins illustrate the importance of the sugar, molasses, and rum trades to the area, and visiting the ruins brings the history of the island to life.
Once you've enjoyed your time at the ruins, you'll continue on to the end of the trail at its intersection with Centerline Road. From that point, you can return the way that you came or continue on to join the Reef Bay Trail. To connect with the Reef Bay Trail, you'll have a short run along Centerline Road.
