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

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.
