This was a great time. Arrival was at the decided time not “Island Time”. The drive showcased the mountains. At the head of the trail is where we began. The hike to Blue Ridge summit was physically difficult, but well rewarded with views of the island. Unfortunately from the summit a cloud had descended on us so we could not see the whole island, but a short ways down we were rewarded with a great view.
Make sure to wear some type of sturdy tennis shoe or better, bring a couple snacks and water.
Average time up is 3 hrs. I was able to finish it in 2:20min. Speed won’t get you to the rewards, determination will.
