The Walking Trails

Time: 1 hour. Difficulty: 2. Mostly steady climbing, constant sun, so take water. Trailhead: Located in the Biras Creek Hotel Resort on North Sound. If you're not a guest, getting permission from the resort first is a fine idea.

The trails go through scrub that gradually grows thicker as you ascend. All the while you have an excellent view of North Sound, one of the finest boat anchorages in the British Virgin Islands.

From the top, on the Atlantic side, search for land. If you see anything, you have damn good eyesight. The nearest landfall is Africa.
