Sandy Cruz Trail

The Sandy Cruz trail starts just above the town of Hell’s Gate and winds around the north side of the island. It is high enough to be in a damp, dense forest with luscious vegetation. We spent about two and a half hours on the trail. It could be done faster, but you wouldn’t have time to see much. If I had my choice, I would have poked along for four hours or more finding creatures and taking photos. Below are a few shots from our trip. They start with a few birds taken en route to the trailhead. Apparently the great egret turned up on the island after a tropical storm.

On the trail, we saw many of the usual subjects, such as the whistling frog, Saban anole, red-bellied racer and a rat. There were also, of course, many snails and other invertebrates.
