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 take it both ways. To solve this problem and round out the experience, we go down the Reef Bay Trail, across to Lameshur, and up the BM Trail. When you arrive at the top, you still have a ways to go, downhill on a paved road, to get back to your car. This trail is more about exercise, solitude, and an experience that differs from any other on the island. There are no ammenities, and you should bring plenty of water, and wear good shoes. We love the trail! I give it four stars only because it is not for everyone.

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.
