A wonderful jungle hike which leads to a secluded, beautiful beach. The trail descends through the lushest part of St John's jungle. Lots of flora (marked with informative signs by the NPS) and fauna (land crabs, huge banana spiders, huge hermit crabs). Be sure to take the short (0.3 miles one way) spur trail to the petroglyphs. Interesting petroglyphs and a beautiful spring-fed waterfall and reflective pool -- both a rarity on this island. The sugar mill ruins at the bottom of the trail are very interesting, and certainly the best-preserved on the island, as the Reef Bay mill operated into the early 20th century. Finally, bring your snorkel equipment for a nice swim in Genti Bay. The best coral can be found by taking the spur trail to Genti Bay (before the ruins). If you go to the beach near the ruins, you'll have to swim a way to get to coral, over interesting, shallow fields of sea grass.
Lots of conchs and other sea life.
