St. Croix Heritage Trail

Recently named one of the 50 U.S. Millennium Legacy Trails, this 72-mile-long scenic route features architectural ruins of the 18th and 19th centuries.

The St. Croix Heritage Trail traverses the entire 28 mile length of St. Croix, linking the historic towns of Frederiksted and Christiansted, the fertile central plain, the mountainous Northside, and the arid East End. The route, which follows modernized 18th century roads, offers a cross section of the island’s history, culture, landscapes, and outdoor activities.

The Trail traces the evolution of the island from days of sugar cane and cotton cultivation to cattle farms, homesteads, suburban communities, industrial complexes and tourist resorts.

The Heritage Trail is a self-guided experience that allows you to explore the island at your own pace.
