Peace Hill, St John

Peace Hill is a short 0.2 mile walk from the paved parking lot off the Northshore road in St John. The trail leads to an open, very scenic grassy overloook with views of the North Shore of St John, St Thomas, Whistling Cay, as well as Jost Van Dyke, Great Thatch and Tortola, BVI’s.
