The views at the top are great, we went in June which is generally a hazy month and the view was still amazing. There was a bit of trash along the trail which was discouraging, pack in and pack out people! Don't be so lazy. We would definitely do the hike again

Out of words to describe the beauty of this place...you gotta go to understand why it is hard to describe. The area is just an adventure you don't imagine...the water is just beautiful and the landscape is breathtaking.

THis is a great hike 20 minutes to the top in a extreemly well marked train with the ability to climb a treehouse at the end to truly appreciate the 360 view of the islands. If you do it before sunset to see the sunset it is a spectacular view, but be sure to leave again before the sun sets,... More

I've hiked to Gorda Peak several times. The encounters along the trail and the views from the peak never cease to amaze me. They just seem to get better with every visit.

Our group of 9 used Sweet Ice Willie's transportation service while we were in the Baths/Virgin Gorda. He dropped us off, and was back at the pre-arranged time....just like he said he would be. Friendly, cheerful, and gave us a little tour of the island as we rode with him..... We thought he was great, and would definitely use him... More

There are only a few parking spots along the road, so come early. The hike is easy. The flora and fauna are only mildly interesting. Lots of hermit crabs and some stinky toes. The view from the top is what makes this hike worth while.

It's a pretty workmanlike hike until you reach the top. Prior to that, there are no views, just a pleasant hike through the woods to the top. The trail is easy to follow. At the top, you can see quite a ways, and it is good to get a bird's eye view of the other islands. We took the shorter... More

there is a nice walking trail to the top, not too strenuous, but hiking shoes advised. at the end of the walk you are treated to a nice view in all directions of the island.

I arranged for Sweet Ice Willie to meet our family of 11 at the cruise port to take us to a local beach. He was there ahead of time and was waiting for us when we got off with a sign so we could easily locate him. He was very kind, helpful and informative on our way to the beach.... More

Hot, muggy and a bit buggy, but didn't take us longer than 15 mins one way. Saw some stinky toe pods, flowers, butterflies, lizards and hermit crabs on the rocky climb up. Awesome 360 view from the platform up top. A good workout, good thing to do on a party cloudy or rainy day--the view is still neat and it'll... More
