Sat, Feb 24, 2018, 2:30 pm: Fleming Circle / St. George Hill Hike

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 2:30pm at Fleming Circle north of Frederiksted town.

This hike is from Fleming Circle to St. George Hill and back, and features nice views of Frederiksted, all of the west end, and some south-side views. The hike is about 3 hours and is mostly easy to moderate, with occasional strenuous sections. We will start on the road and walk from the parking area to the two stone columns. We will go uphill until we meet the brushline. We will be walking through brush, so long pants are recommended. We will follow the old road, through the brush. It comes out onto a dirt road that turns paved. We will come back to the road we started on. Then we will walk back to the parking area. The hike leader will be Catherine Prince.
