Hard to find trail head - look for signs to Quill. Buy a park pass in advance. Take plenty of water. Good hiking shoes a must.

Great hike up the volcano and down into crater. The tries in the crater are so big and beautiful. Please wear hiking shoes and be careful going down and hold on tight to the ropes.

Hiking up the Quill crater is a must when visiting St. Eustatius. The hike up Quill trail is quite nice (do not forget to purchase a $10 token at the visitor center, tourist information or the Old Gin House hotel before heading out). You can...More
