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

We almost skipped this stop on our self-tour of Virgin Gorda. First, there is no formal parking spots for the trail up to the peak. We were told to just park anywhere along the road, which made us a bit nervous since the trailhead is located on a very busy stretch of road coming over the peak. The sign says... More

The hike is about 50 minutes round trip and not difficult, although you do need sneakers. Not much to see except a couple lizards. There is a platform at the top of the trail with good views, better views from Hog Heaven. Worth it if you have an hour to kill but otherwise can be skipped.

The hike was very easy I did the long one with my two year old on my back almost all the way up, and I dont excerize so you can imagine it wasnt that challenging. During the walk there is nothing to see, but the view from the top makes it worth it.

Great break from the boat. Keep an eye our for little lizards. Great view from the top for photos. The bar has a pool to cool off in - you will need it. We had 8 to 80 year olds make the hike.

We hiked this trail up to Gorda Peak with the kids. It is a good hike up the hill, so wear good shoes. It is totally worth it, because the view is stunning at the top! A great morning with the kids

We like to hike and it was good to find some nice trails on Virgin Gorda where the emphasis is generally on water sports. There are two routes to the top of Gorda Peak and we took the long way which was only about 30 min or so for us. This was the route without stairs at the beginning. When... More
