This hike is challenging over the rocks of Salt Pond and then the Cobblestone beach. But enjoy the journey. It’s windy up there but I have never seen such amazing views. Wear close toed shoes. No flip flops for this one.

Truly the most beautiful site at the end of this trail. Do go early in the day if it is going to be sunny as there is not any shade and it is mostly all up hill climbing.

Superb views await you at the end of this relatively short, but intense hike on Ram's Head. It was one of the favorite things we did during our vacation to St. John!

This hike ends with a sweeping view of the waters from the southernmost tip of St John. It starts around Salt Pond and then works through some covering but eventually to pretty arid area. I took two water bottles and needed every bit of it!...More

This was an moderate hike with some really good views of salt pond bay and the surrounding islands. My wife and I did it in sandals and I would highly recommend some tennis shoes.

Having hiked this trail in June, it was quite hot and, with the sometimes aggressive climbs, it required a bit of physical effort. But we persevered and when we reached the summit, we were rewarded with some truly awesome views! For those who, like us,...More

Early morning before the heat of the day. We hiked to the end and could look back at our rental house. It was like standing at the end of the world. Be sure to go to Drunk Bay also.

If you want to see picturesque and pristine views go to rams head. You end up on high cliffs with waves smashing far below, can achieve astounding pictures. We even saw a humming bird there. Worth the hike. Need good shoes, need to take time...More
