St. Croix is blessed with many different types of terrain – the lushness of the west end and the rainforest, the arid climate and cactus on the east end, the high peaks and gentle plains that line the mid-island coastlines. Going for a hike on St. Croix is one of the best ways to experience the truly beautiful views, often unseen from the main roadways. While many of the best hikes on St. Croix are accessible to the public, they are not necessarily well-marked with signs.

To take an amazing hike, your best bet is to hike with a guide who knows St. Croix well. You’ll want to have sneakers, plenty of sunscreen, a hat, water, and even a snack.
