Wonderful hike and salt pond bay ended up being a great place to relax and have lunch after the hike. Great views and not too difficult a hike.

a great trail to the top of a cliff with a lot of wind (hold onto your hat)!! a beautiful pebble beach half way to the end. of course fantastic views over the blue water. slightly strenuous but doable for almost anyone.

Beautiful walk but it was too hot and humid for me and I overheated. There is quite a bit of uphill climbing.

It really is located far far away from Cruz Bay and even Coral Bay, but it was pretty cool. Nice manageable hike. Some steep spots. Some downhill inclines. The view at the top and all the pics youll take will make it worth it. The Salt Pond Beach is good for snorkling but not our favorite beach. A bit boring.... More

Travel along Salt Pond Bay, then uphill to a beautiful vista, worth the trek. Bring snorkel gear and spend some time on the beach and in the water at Salt Pond Bay when you're done.

We love this hike! The scenery is absolutely gorgeous and it is a fairly easy hike. I would go early in the day because you are exposed to the sun and it can get a bit hot, even in the winter and spring.

Favorite hike on the island and we hiked ALOT. Ditch your lunch and towels on the beach at Salt Pond. Go do the Rams Head trail and go back to the beach to chill. Amazing view at Rams head. Challenging trail but not super long. Worth it!!!!

This was an amazing hike. It starts along the water before winding up the hill. There are cacti everywhere. The trail switch-backs so it is not too steep. The views at the top are stunning. Make sure you bring more water than you think you need. It gets very hot and there is no shade. I ran out of water... More

Hike is worth the walking over rocks and standing up to the wind. Beautiful views on the way and at the Ram Head. Then, you return to Salt Pond and enjoy the beautiful beach and snorkeling.
