THING TO DO

Cinnamon Bay Nature Loop And Accessible Trail

Cinnamon Bay Plantation Ruins

Wander through the the site of this sugar plantation and read the waysides to learn about life in the plantation days. Then venture up the hill through the bay rum, tyre palm and other native trees. Smell the bay rum leaves as you progress through the trees. You may see the above ground tombs of the former plantation owner's wife Anna Margarethe and her children, located in the shady grove of the genip and bay rum trees growing above the plantation. The trail passes over the gut, which provided water to the plantation below.
Details
Though the trail can be walked quickly, the deep shade, quiet and excellent birding opportunites invite lingering and savoring the sunlight filtering through the green canopy and the scent of the bay rum trees.

Accessibility Information

The first .09 miles of the Cinnamon Nature loop is accessible via the boardwalk. This concrete and wooden boardwalk meanders through the ruins. It is 4 feet wide with very little slope making it wheelchair and stroller friendly. The remaining portion of the trail is moderately sloped and packed earth with occasional roots and rocks to navigate.
