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: We will hike the two highest peaks on St. Croix, under a full moon. The terrain is moderate to very steep in some areas, with some loose stones, totalling about 6.3 miles. We will discuss the natural, cultural, and historic aspects of both sites. Bring a flashlight, water and snack. Due to recent rain, you may want to wear long pants due to brush. Olasee Davis is our tour guide.
