Can anyone suggest trails to run or hike on these islands-Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Little JVD, JVD & Cooper. We have a couple of Ultra Trail runners on board when we visit the end of June.

Thank You 😊

Unfortunately, a lot of the trails have changed since last year, because of hurricane damage (like Guy's trail on VG, etc.) so the existing guides might not be of much help. It would be best to ask the locals when you get there. They can always use the paved roads and dirt roads on every island like JVD and Tortola to get in some great runs. It will be the trails that have changed.

Good luck!

Our friends were there and said it was impassable, kind of like the entire Bitter End Resort.

JVD-The road from the Bubbly Pool entrance to the Soggy Dollar is a good run. Make a loop of it by heading in the upper trail to get back.

Disclaimer: I have not walked/run the entire upper trail since Irma. Only from the Bubbly pool to above Little Harbour. I have seen friends photos of the same West to East above White Bay.

Enjoy!

I can confirm the trails at Sage Mountain on Tortola are in decent shape since Irma and make a nice hike with some views that were blocked before the hurricanes. Can't run them, but it's a nice hike.

Has anyone tried the road/trail on Norman Island recently? About 5 years ago we walked up to the ridge from Benures Bay and followed a path that I understand was supposed to be a road to a resort in Money Bay that never materialized. There seemed to be a clearing off the beach but I haven't tried it on our last few trips.

It's also my understanding (we didn't walk this direction) that the trail circles to the West to get to Pirates Bight.

The article talking about the owners plan to build on Norman says that some roadwork has been done. Maybe this trip we'll try to take a walk up there!

We did the trail from Pirates to the helipad in late April. No problems and more views because of less vegetation.

We didn't do the hike in January but two years ago we hiked up from Pirates and instead of going left to the helipad, we went to the right. It makes a big loop back to where you start. If you google earth Norman Island you can see most of the trails. The part that loops back is hidden from the trees.

On VG just use the roads - it's quite a workout
