I ran down the Bordeaux mountain trail as part of a loop around the reef bay trail and Bordeaux mountain road. Overall the trail is steep and fairly rocky compared to other trails on the island and it was probably my last favorite trail I went on during our vacation. There are two viewpoints, with impressive views to the south... More

We hiked this after going to little lameshur beach. There was a nice view at one point of lameshur bay. But when we got to the top there wasn't a view at all and you are on the road quite a bit until you get to Centerline. Not many taxi's out there so plan accordingly for your return trip home.

One of my favorite hikes on STJ UP parking at the Reef Bay trail head on Centerline Road by 8 AM, in order to secure a parking space, and beat the mid day heat. Hike down Reef Bay Trail to Pertoglyphs (0.4 mile side trip), then to Reef Bay beach if you want, then over the Lamesur Trail to Little... More

Drove down the road to find a scenic view and came upon a drug deal. Scary and glad we made it out of there alive. May want to avoid the dirt roads that look like they are leading to know where. Vangens Seattle WA

We are in good physical shape and this was a challenging hike. The trail was very hot and steep with just a few views that were not that impressive. If you are just wanting a physical challenge this is your hike. If you're looking for some sort of stunning views this is not it. There are a lot of large... More

There's two nice views along the way that you can peek through some trees, but none that you can stop and take them in. It's very steep, and you end up at a a road with no view. It was a great workout though. You should be in a good physical health to do this trail.

We only hiked this very short trail because we wanted to get to the highest point on the island. There are no views, the trail is uninspiring... It is what it is.

The view is one you will never forget. This is a stop on the way to the other side of the island. Do not look for amenities at this location.

This is a rougher trail, and can be quite steep in spots. Every now and then the trail breaks into an opening with fabulous south shore views. It is a workout to go UP the trail, much less so to go down. Either way, the trail heads leave you with the need to figure out transportation if you do not... More

Not too long but can be tough. Great views from a few spots. Can be rough/grown up in many places. Gets very hot coming down & especially worse if u dare go back up (why did I do that?). Nice to hike down starting early in morning then spend time at the Lameshurs waiting on ride.
