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

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

Virgin Gorda is a sailing and other water activities hub in the British Virgin Islands. But if you go inland you can have a panoramic view of all the BVI. You'll need a vehicle of some sort (car is preferable) to get to the starting point of the trail to the "peak." It's about a half hour light hike uphill... More

The path to Virgin Gorda peak is rocky, but the vegetation is beautiful and we climbed to the top viewing deck pretty easily. "A lovely walk" as my kids say. Keep an eye out for Land Hermit Crabs which are fascinating. Signs are a bit misleading as one path says 45 mins to the top and the other says 20... More

not a long hike. Pretty well signed. Decent view at the top (climb up the stairs/ladder to an observation platform)--the view from Hog Heaven was actually better (more unobstructed). We didn't see another person the entire time.

The Baths & The Caves,,, great place to snorkel and layout on the yacht. All of my best vacation photographs came from Virgin Gorda. The water is a beautiful turquoise to compliment the gorgeous skys. The customs process returning to USVI was very smooth as well. Highly recommend.

Tough to find the entrance, we parked on the side of the road near an outlook and walked back. Sign said it was an estimated 25 minute walk, more like 40 minute one way. The view was beautiful. Bit of a vertical narrow climb, have good shoes.

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
