Sunday, June 16th, 2024, 4:30pm: Hike to Blue Mountain

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: The St. Croix Hiking Association has scheduled a flashlight hike to Blue Mountain on Sunday, June 16, 2024. Blue Mountain is the second highest peak on St. Croix with a breathtaking view of the island. The terrain is moderate to very steep in some areas. Long plants are the best idea, the area will be overgrown. Total time is about 3.5 hours, with a total distance about 3.7 miles roundtrip. Bring a flashlight (or two). We will discuss the natural and cultural history of the area. Ecologist Olasee Davis is our guide.

Meet at 4:30pm on the top of THE BEAST.
