  • One of the best maintained parks in St. John and very scenic too. Main gravel road branches out into different circuits with varying lengths and difficulty levels, there's something for everyone. Big parking space at the main gate and smaller parking lots across the nature park so you can stop right next to the trail you want to hike. There are some looking points almost on every trail, overlooking the bay. Great to watch the tide turn. Bbq areas and portable toilets are across the park.
  • Probably the best trail I have ever walked on. It is well maintained, have staff driving through the park for monitoring, beautiful views, and the foliage smells so good. There are gravel flatter trails to walk, as well as paths through the forest that walks along side the water. Would definitely recommend visiting here.
