St. John Trails: Europa Point Revisited 1/31/2011

St. John Trails: Europa Point TrailSpectacular Views – Relatively Easy Hike
The Europa Point Trail, which is the first spur trail off of the Lameshur Bay Trail, leads to a vantage point high up on the point from where you can enjoy beautiful views of St. John’s south shore.

This is a great hike for those that are looking for a relatively easy hiking experience. Begin the hike at the eastern entrance to the Lameshur Bay Trail, where you’ll find the ruins of a hundred year old bay rum factory and an older sugar mill.

Europa Point Trail SignHere the Lameshur Bay Trail runs through a low lying area adjacent top the shoreline. It’s easy going, flat ground and lots of shade. You’ll pass by an old tamarind tree, on your left, split in two by lightning years ago.

Not far after passing the tamarind tree and before the trail begins its incline you’ll come to the entrance of the Europa Point Trail, now marked by a trail sign.

The approximately one-quarter-mile Europa Point Trail runs through a flat dry forest environment before rising into cactus scrub and guinea grass.
