U.S. Virgin Islands

Francis Bay Trail — St. John

National Park Service

This Virgin Islands National Park run is a little bit off the beaten path, but it’s an interesting course which mixes paved roads, paths, and waterfront views. Start off at Francis Bay, just south of Mary Point in the North of the island. The Francis Bay Trail starts at the beach to the west. To the east, it runs out to the Annaberg School Ruins and the Annaberg Sugar Plantation where it meets up with the Leinster Bay Trail. This gorgeous path circles Waterlemon Bay for about half a mile. When you reach the end towards Leinster Point, you can reverse back towards Francis Bay for a total of about 3.7 miles.
