I would NOT recommend this to anyone, especially during off season. The entire road north from Frederiksted to Ham's Bluff is terrible. If you don’t have a 4x4 I wouldn’t attempt it, It's a miracle we didn't pop a tire or get stuck in a...More

It takes 20-30 minutes to drive here from Frederiksted. The road is completely destroyed. We drove a Toyota Yaris and had to do it at a snail's pace. Park at the abandoned building with broken fences at the end. You can walk straight to the...More

We visited the lighthouse 4/10 and I must say it was pretty cool. To see something that was actually built on 1915 just amazes be regardless of the shape it is in now. The fence around the armory is nearly completely down so just look...More

Visited Feb. 2018. As mentioned, the fence is down, walk directly across from the road across the property to the small bridge and start! Quick hike, narrow but identifiable trail. My daughter walked in flip flops, but not recommended (she's an expert in flip flops)....More

This was a 20 minute, straight up climb with spots where I could stop to catch my breath in the shade. I would consider this a moderate hike. Beautiful views of the north shore are the reward! With the fence down from the hurricane, it...More

If you look at previous directions for the trailhead, they say to go around the fence of the national guard station at the end of the road (after passing another guard station earlier along the road). The fence is DOWN and there were no occupants...More

It was a long bumpy drive to get to the end of the road where you leave your car outside the complex. You walk around the complex fence to get to the trail head. The hike itself is about 20 minutes to get to the...More

Very steep climb up to the lighthouse, but you are rewarded with spectacular views. Absolutely stunning. Climb the lighthouse and have someone with you to climb the tower next to it to take your photo at the top. Watch your head at the top of...More

Use GPS to get to the end of the road and check the photos for the path to the left of the gate (no cell service where you park). There are no signs - views are great from the trailhead. About a 15-20 min climb...More

Took a trip with my Air BNB hosts today and it was worth the thigh burn to get up and see it. You start at the foot of the old National Guard station and before you get to the bridge you pass the almond tree....More
