Hike the Ram Head Trail in St John US Virgin Islands
Many people visit the island of St John to spend time at one of the best beaches in the world, and rightfully so. But if one is looking for an adventure to stay active on the island, the hike to Ram Head peak is perfect! It starts at Salt Pond Beach, which is a less touristy beach for relaxing and snorkeling. The hike if full of amazing views of the Caribbean islands! It is a unique area of St John. Instead of palms trees, one will find an array of pretty cacti. It is a great way to enjoy nature and stay active.

For those looking for more of a challenge
Just before the Ram Head peak there is an even higher hill. One can hike to the top of the hill for an AMAZING view of St John and surrounding islands.
Things to do before you get started.
Before starting the hike make sure to wear shoes that are appropriate for walking on unsteady rocks. Most of the trail is very easy, but there is an area which requires walking on a rock beach. This would be challenging without the right kind of footwear. Pack beverages and snacks, or maybe even lunch. Prepare with the right kind of sun protection for you. The trail starts out with shade, but close to the peak there are no trees for shade and it could get quite hot on a sunny day.Add/Edit Before
