I arranged for Sweet Ice Willie to meet our family of 11 at the cruise port to take us to a local beach. He was there ahead of time and was waiting for us when we got off with a sign so we could easily locate him. He was very kind, helpful and informative on our way to the beach. He was very good with our kids and I would highly recommend him. It is really easy to prearrange with him.

Hot, muggy and a bit buggy, but didn't take us longer than 15 mins one way. Saw some stinky toe pods, flowers, butterflies, lizards and hermit crabs on the rocky climb up. Awesome 360 view from the platform up top. A good workout, good thing to do on a party cloudy or rainy day--the view is still neat and it'll be cooler temp wise.

We almost skipped this stop on our self-tour of Virgin Gorda. First, there is no formal parking spots for the trail up to the peak. We were told to just park anywhere along the road, which made us a bit nervous since the trailhead is located on a very busy stretch of road coming over the peak.

The sign says it is a 25 minute hike to the lookout and I would agree with that estimate. We made it a little quicker, but we were rushing to meet our ferry time. The lookout is a series of short wooden ladders up to a deck-like lookout. The entire wooden structure is well-constructed and very stable. The views were amazing - basically 360 degrees. However, they weren't that much better than you get from some of the lookouts along the road.

Overall, I'm very happy we stopped at the lookout, but wouldn't do it again if it meant taking a later ferry. The views from the lookouts/pull-offs are great and so is the view from Hog Heaven.

The hike is about 50 minutes round trip and not difficult, although you do need sneakers. Not much to see except a couple lizards. There is a platform at the top of the trail with good views, better views from Hog Heaven. Worth it if you have an hour to kill but otherwise can be skipped.

The hike was very easy I did the long one with my two year old on my back almost all the way up, and I dont excerize so you can imagine it wasnt that challenging. During the walk there is nothing to see, but the view from the top makes it worth it.
