Ram Head Trail
There is no better way to experience St John's appreciable natural beauty, than by walking the Ram Head Trail (also called the Ram's Head Trail). This mile-long (about 1.5km) hike starts at Salt Pond Bay beach, and continues along the shoreline, going past the extraordinary Blue Cobblestone beach, before climbing the hillside and ending at a crest, 200 feet above the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. Along the trail, you'll see all kinds of interesting flora and fauna, including pipe organ cactus, and - if you're lucky - American kestrel, and there are any number of great lookout points to stop and picnic. Visitors are advised to take a lot of water along, and to start out early - as it can get very hot on the trail, very quickly, and there isn't a lot of shade around until you start climbing. Also note that while the hike is gentle, it is rocky, so good shoes are essential.
