Petroglyph Trail, St. John US Virgin Islands


Despite the heavy rains, the Reef Bay Trail for the most part remained in fairly good condition, at least up to the Petroglyph and Lameshur Bay intersections.

The use of strategically placed stone culverts to deflect the water to the side of the trail and thus preventing the erosion that would be caused if the water just was allowed to run down the trail, did their jobs well.

This is not to say that you didn’t have to cross some rapidly running guts that were flowing over the trail.

Petroglyph Waterfalls

It was definitely worth the effort as the Petroglyph waterfall was spectacular!

Upper Falls

It was so good that I decided to brave the steep, muddy, slippery path that leads to the top of the falls and to the bottom of another waterfall that appeared to be about twice the height of the Petroglyph Falls.
