A not too difficult walk--a round trip takes about an hour--it has gorgeous views of the Bay and bits of the island edge. Wear comfortable shoes.

What an amazing 10 mike hike. We didn’t see one other person the entire time. This hike is difficult but well worth it!! Lots of shade. Bring water and a camera.

I thought this hike was harder than "moderate", considering how slippery it was and how uphill. The whole hike to the ridge is uphill, and the top of the ridge was covered with clouds when I got there. I really enjoyed the first mile the...More
