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.

The sign says 50 minutes to the top, but it was more like 25 and we were not killing ourselves. Very nice walk through thick forest ending at a three story platform that offers 360 degree views. Very glad we did it and would recommend it for anyone looking for something beyond the beaches!

I was a little nervous to hike Gorda Peak, not for the hike (more like a walk) but because I was alone in a new place. It turned out to be just fine (maybe it was because I was soon loud walking through to ensure some unknown animal would get me or a snake would leave my path "think Parent... More

Where do I even start with Virgin Gorda? Will it be the fantastic views, the lovely people or the beaches? Yes. It'll be the beaches. If you come to visit this island, it is one thing that must be done - to visit the beaches. Ironically, you've probably already see the Virgin Gorda beaches. The are the famous stock screensavers...

Both the long and short hikes are fun. The views from the platform at the top of the peak are stunning.

Stopped along the road on our way from Leverick Bay to Spanish town and hiked to the top. The trail is rocky but nothing outrageous. Along the way there is restrooms and picnic tables so you can bring a lunch. Once at the top the views are 360 degrees of the island and absolutely gorgeous. A must do to stretch... More
