other than I have joined the Islandia team and the National Park Service has recently opened up some fabulous ruins at L’Esperance. I can’t tell you how many times I passed by this spot and had no idea all this great history was right back there! Hat’s off to the National Park Service for a job well done clearing these ruins! It’s one of my favorite hikes (and my dogs!) because you can make it a short or tough hike.  The trail runs from Centerline Road to Reef Bay and if you are not into a 2-3 hour hike, just take a short half hour hike to check out these beautiful ruins.  It’s a must see!!! You can find the entrance with a small clearing for parking shortly after you pass the entrance into Catherineberg when traveling east on Centerline. Look for it on your right after a few bends in the road. I would love to hear your feedback on this trail or other trails that you love to hike on this beautiful island that I am lucky enough to call home!  Suggestions or questions about the trails here on St. John,USVI contact me at Happy Hiking!
