St. Croix has a wealth
of adventurous hiking trails, many that
even novice hikers can handle on their own.
Note that these trails are not defined or
marked, so you’ll feel as close to
nature as the island’s original inhabitants.
Isaac’s Bay, where you can explore
the beach and search for shells, is a two-mile
hike winding through the arid field filled
with cacti on St. Croix’s southern
shore. A slightly shorter, but just as exciting
hike is at Annaly Bay; this is a 1½-mile
trek. Once there, you can enjoy the warm
wading pools and explore the deserted beach.
For those who prefer to explore with a group,
St. Croix Environmental Association (S.E.A.)
offers guided nature hikes. For a schedule
of hikes or to book a tour, contact the
Visitors Center or St. Croix Environmental
Horseback riding on St.
Croix is a memorable experience. The island’s
scenic trails travel along tropical beaches
or through the "rain forest."
Hilltop vistas and sugar-mill ruins are
among the many sights you’ll see.
Beginning riders receive reining, trotting
and cantering lessons. Stables are located
on St. Croix’s West End.
