Maps

The actual terrestrial acreage of Virgin Islands National Park occupies a little more than half of St. John. Approximately 5,650 of adjacent submerged lands are included in the Park as well. The map featured in the Park's brochure depicts the authorized boundary, properties that Park owned, and within the authorized boundary that are privately owed.

 

Virgin Islands National Park maintains 20 trails and provides a hiking guide, which depicts the trails (page 1) and a description of each (page 2), including distance (one way) and approximate hiking time.

Stop by the Visitor Center in Cruz Bay, get a brochure and trail map, and enjoy exploring the Park.

Did You Know?

Gecko searching for insects.

One of the smallest lizards on St. John is the Dwarf Gecko. This tiny, inch-long reptile is native to the island, while many of the other geckos arrived on sailing ships in the 17th century. Dwarf Geckos feed on insects in the forest during the day, while most other geckos are nocturnal feeders.
