Nice, short hike

Nice short hike that goes through some ruins and does a loop through the woods. Interesting facts along the trail and a cemetery near the end of the hike.

Nice easy to follow fairly flat trail through some impressive sugar ruins. It doesn't take very long to complete so why not do it?

We took the hike around the ruins and the woods. Saw lot of deer and mongoose. Shady and quiet- we did this after an afternoon of snorkeling. Ate lunch across the street at Cinnamon Bay campground, then strolled across to the nature trail,.

Cinnamon Bay Trail is mile long, strenuous hike to Centerline Road. This is a self-guiding NATURE trail across the road from Cinnamon Bay Campground. The 1/2 mile loop passes through the ruins of an old sugar factory and native tropical trees. It's listed as "easy" but I wouldn't call it that. It's very rocky terrain and gets a little steep....

Cinnamon Bay Beach was recommended by Steph at the Dog House. We were very surprised to see deer roaming throughout the camp area. You may purchase a drink there if you like. The beach was beautiful and quiet. We enjoyed our afternoon very much!

I don't hike often, so this was more of a nice trail than a big hike. We left from Caneel Bay and took a well-marked trail back into Cruz Bay. Got to see lots of amazing palms, some hermit crabs and cactus. Trail is pretty flat most of the way with just a few tricky spots. It does get hot... More

This was a really nice hike. We started on Rt. 20 and hiked up hill. It's not too bad with a fairly gradual slope. Lots of wildlife and birds. Highly recommended.

This walk was well marked and labeled with interesting historic information. The signs describing the surrounding nature was informative and the walk itself was leisurely. If you are at Cinnamon Bay beach take the time to do the walk.
