Sit a spell and enjoy the view of the harbor. This is a great hike for those just looking to stretch their legs or are only on St. John for a short time. For those who have more time, are looking for more exercise and maybe a snorkel, follow the trails to Honeymoon Bay and Salomon Bay.

Salomon Beach
Salomon Beach is the first you come to if taking the lower Lind Point Trail. The tree lined beach offers the option of shady or sunny areas to sit a spell. There is great snorkeling anywhere in the bay but you will usually find more fish along the rocky edges of either side of the beach. You can swim or hike to Honeymoon Beach from here.

The duration of the hike depends on how long one enjoys gazing at the water from the overlook. 

This short hike is perfect for most age groups and great for families.

The Lind Point Trail starts just behind the park visitor center and ends at breathtaking Honeymoon Bay or Solomon Bay.

The trail offers several spurs one of which heads to the overlook. Stop and rest on the bench as you watch the boats sail by.
