Reef Bay Hike @ Virgin Islands National Park Center (in Cruz Bay) | Cruz Bay | St. John | U.S. Virgin Islands

Step back in time while experiencing a moist tropical forest as you hike down the verdant Reef
Bay Valley. Along the way, you will have the opportunity to learn about the people who have
called St John home and about their relationship to the natural world.

Sugar plantation ruins, stone walls from cattle grazing, and ancient rock carvings left behind by
the pre-Colombian Taino can be found along the trail. This evidence from the past is a reminder
of changes over time on the island.

The oldest and tallest trees on the island can be found in this valley, creating a canopy of shade
for hikers and a habitat for a variety of wildlife. Throughout time, people survived using vines,
trees, flowers and fruits that are now preserved and protected for future generations.
