The hiking trail begins at the Blue Harbor Tropical Arboretum welcome area, where the Botanical Conservatory, restaurant (The Porch), restrooms, parking, iguana sanctuary and bird aviary, and the hydroponic farm are all located. Following a well-marked path, you will head uphill to immediately enjoy some of the best views of the area. Be sure to take your time and bring your camera to capture these moments!
The trail continues heading up and down the hillsides and venturing through shady jungle paths as well as open fields. Enjoy the fresh scents of tropical fruits and flowers along the way and be on the lookout for agouti (also called island rabbits) and a variety of tropical birds.
The hiking tour concludes back at the central welcome center, and after hiking the island’s hills, you will definitely need something cool and refreshing. Be sure to stop by The Porch for a shady seat and a cold drink.
The hiking trails can be walked in sections if preferred, which enables the trails to be enjoyed by everyone.
