Sun, Sep 25, 2011, 3:00 pm: Christiansted Walk

General info for all hikes and walks: Hikes and walks are $5 for members, and $10 for non-members (become a member). Unless otherwise noted, the pace for hikes is moderate, lasting 3-5 hours, covering 3-5 miles, the terrain is hilly, footing is sometimes uneven, and we follow trails and possibly paved or dirt roads . Walks are easier and shorter than hikes, and usually follow paved or dirt roads, no trails. The guide may periodically stop and talk along the way. Bring sturdy, comfortable walking or hiking shoes, water, snack, bug spray, rain poncho, and camera. Shorts or long pants are OK. For day hikes, bring a hat and sun block. For night hikes, bring a small flashlight. There are usually about 20 people. We depart about 30 minutes after the posted start time. For some hikes, we will meet at the indicated location, then drive a short distance to the hike location.

Specific info for this hike: Meet 3:00pm at Bassin Triangle, across from the police station, in the parking lot of the former gas station. This is a guided tour of the town of Christiansted. Historical buildings, areas, churches etc. will be pointed out. This is an easy walk of about 2 hours total.

Driving directions: Bassin Triangle is the intersection of Northside Rd. (Route 75) and Centerline Rd. (Route 70), about 1/4 mile west of downtown Christiansted. Coming from downtown Christiansted and going west on Route 75, it is the first traffic light you come to, and you will turn into the parking lot of the former gas station on the left, just before the traffic light.
