St. Croix Hiking Trails and Experiences

Hiking on St. Croix offers the opportunity to experience the natural beauty of the island and learn about its ecology and history. Popular hikes include the Jack and Isaac Bay Preserve Trail, the Ham’s Bluff Lighthouse, the Carambola Trumbull Trail to Annaly Bay Tide Pools, the Goat Hill Trail, Sandy Point Beach Walk, and Maroon Ridge. Some hiking trails on St. Croix lead to the top of ridges, others to sugar plantation ruins, and several to the ocean, where you can explore the coastline, tide pools, and swim.

Look for opportunities to take a guided hike with a local non-profit organization like the St. Croix Environmental Association (SEA), Crucian Heritage and Nature Tourism (CHANT), or with the St. Croix Hiking Association. These hiking trips with local groups are only offered occasionally during the year. 

For year-round hiking opportunities on St. Croix with a guide, look at the awesome experiences offered by local hiking tour outfits like Bush Tribe Eco Adventures.
