Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

Not worth giving up part of the day for. Downhill and then a brutal return to the top of the trailhead. We are early 60-somethings in decent shape. A couple in great cardio shape. The trail is rough, rocky and honestly, not much to see. Maybe a few remains of structures. The petroglyphs aren’t that exciting and somewhat difficult to see. Our mistake was going mid-day and it was hot, very humid and we didn’t take enough water. We own that mistake. Trail is mostly shaded. I honestly don’t think going when it’s cooler would make that much of a difference. Be sure to wear good athletic shoes or hiking shoes/boots. Dry season, so no waterfalls, and a stagnant pond at the petroglyphs awaited us. Take a snack and hydrate before you go. We did not go down to the beach below.

Beware. Unlike in years past, this tour has become a 4 hour indoctrination into woke ideology. While the plight of indigenous and enalaved peoples is extremely important to understand and appreciate, it’s unfortunate that that has become the sole topic of discussion on this hike. The ecology and biology of the island is largely ignored.

Fun hike with lots of wildlife, different elevations, petroglyphs, and ruins! Steep and somewhat rocky at the beginning and the end, otherwise relatively flat. Bring lots of water.

The hike is fairly easy to the Reef Bay, as it is mostly downhill (or level), but the return is more arduous as it is steeply uphill for the last 1/3 of the trail, with lots of stone steps. Most of the trail is shaded under trees, so it isn't hot and the path is well-marked and well-groomed. At the end, just before Reef Bay, you're rewarded with the somewhat intact remains of a sugar mill. The beach is rocky, so if you can carry water shoes in your backpack, that would be helpful. I would also advise women to wear two-piece (tankini) bathing suits, so you can go to the bathroom easily en route. We were walking at a decent clip, and the hike took about 2.5 hours, with a detour to the Petroglyph Trail and a quick dip in the ocean. It was very dry out so the trail wasn't slippery at all, but the waterfall at the Petroglyph was also non-existent, which is too bad as some of the photos looked amazing. The entrance to the trail is through an opening in a stone wall, and cars have to park alongside the road. We arrived at 9:30 a.m. and we were able to park about 50 feet away from the entrance.

This is a scenic hike down from the Centerline road to the beach, with interesting ruins along the way, and a short detour over to very interesting petroglyphs. Hard to tell from reviews how hard it is and how long it takes, so here's my take-its a moderate hike-easy on the way down, steeper on the way back (duh, of course!) . It took us (we're in our late 60s, but used to hiking) about 90 minutes to go down (which included 0.5 mile over/back to the petroglyphs), and about 60 min to go back. Nothing very challenging excepting climbing up/over some rocks to get close to the petroglyphs. Well worth doing if you like to hike and explore ruins. Bring water.

The Reef bay trail head is located on Centerline Road, a 5 mile drive from the Ferry pier in Cruz bay. A taxi to the trail head is $14, and if you do this hike in the week, the VITRAN stops at the trailhead. The start of the trail is at an entrance in a stone wall, and down a few steps. There are storyboards along the trail which describe the trail history, plants and animals in the park. The old stone drainage gutters are an interesting view on the trail, as they still are necessary today to ensure the stability of the trail.

After walking for half a mile (20 minutes) the first ruins will be seen. The Jossie Gut Estate was famous for it's natural water system with sluice gates and dam. These remains may be inspected before approaching the factory ruins. After passing this area, be on the lookout for deer, which occasionally cross the path in front of you. The next ruins, about 10 minutes away, is Par Force Village, which is the ruins of a single house. Another 10 minutes of walking will take you to a trail on the right known as Petroglyph Trail. At the end of this trail is a small pool in front of a waterfall. There is Taino rock art on the stones next to the pool which makes for great photos.

After returning to the main trail, a short distance away is the Lameshur trail on the left. This trail leads to the Reef Bay Great House and Par Force Estate ruins. After returning to the main trail, you can continue south to the Reef Bay Factory. In this section of the trail, there are many hermit crabs, so care should be taken not to step on shells. Eventually the trail will become more sandy near to the end, and you will pass the entrance to the L'Esperance trail on the right. The Reef Bay factory is one of the best examples of a sugar mill in the Caribbean. The Reef Bay beach is a good area to relax after a long hike. If you are adventurous, take the L'Esperance trail to Genti Bay beach.

I continued my hike up the L'Esperance trail instead of walking back up the Reef Bay trail. The L'Esperance trail is less steep than the Reef Bay trail, and there are ruins of the Sieban Estate and L'Esperance estate that may be visited on the hike. Ensure that you are wearing good footwear as the trail can be slippery in a few places.

My husband and I did this hike on our own. We rented a car and drove into the park because it may have been difficult to find a taxi to come get us. The walk down was okay but the walk up is somewhat difficult. Definitely bring a lot of water and a snack.

We booked the guided hike and boat ride through the Friends of the Virgin Islands National Park website. Our tour guide (Taylor?) was fantastic. Warning - All day parking at Lumberyard costs $70 - park elsewhere. The tour leaves promptly at 8:45 with a safari taxi ride to the trailhead. The hike is all down-hill and not strenuous. At about 11:30 you'll stop at the petroglyphs and have a break for lunch if you brought it. It's another ~ 1 mile to the sugar mill ruins and the beach. There is a (not in good condition) restroom at the ruins. Wear your swimsuit under your clothes if you want a dip in the ocean - you'll have 20 minutes or so depending on the time of the boat arrival. Dinghy from the beach to the boat - took 5 trips for our group of 30. Then a wonderful boat ride back to the visitor center - we got back around 2:00. I would have given in 5 stars only if the pre-communicated information had been a little clearer (itinerary was vague) and we hadn't been told to park at the lumberyard!!

The Reef Bay Trail was everything we expected! We knew to start early so that the challenging uphill return would not be in 90+ degrees.
The trail reveals the islands flora and an occasional animal.
Combining The Petroglyph Trail made our first USVI hike quite memorable.
Wear hikers, bring 2 liters of water per person, bring protein snacks and remember to stop and catch your breath often on the was back up!.

The first 2.5 miles to the beach are great, mostly downhill and there's a detour to see the petroglyphs. We saw deer, hermit crabs and even a tortoise on the way.

Right before you hit the beach you'll see the old sugar mill. The beach is beautiful, we stopped for a rest, a swim and lunch before hiking back up about 2 miles.

I would recommend saving the photo ops for the way back to break up the hike. You'll need breaks on the return, the last mile or so is pretty much entirely uphill.

If you do the whole trail and return it's about 5 miles total. There's an option to get a boat from the NPS from the beach only on certain days of the week, so plan ahead!
