What's the story with accessing Jack Bay and the Nature Preserve from Grapetree?
Option 1: There's a trailhead just north of where South Grapetree Rd meets Point Rd. The trail is well maintained and connects with the main trail that runs all the way to Pt. Udall. Yet, there's a "No Trespassing" sign posted at the trailhead and the first part of the trail appears to be traversing at least 4 different private properties (based on USVI.mapgeo.io).
Option 2: Point Road which leads directly to the Nature Preserve's border is blocked by a private gate which presumably is illegal (from what I can tell based on USVI.mapgeo.io). Looks like the last house #26 just put a gate on a public road and took over the cul-de-sac for their own parking and in the process blocks people from accessing a public space. There's a poorly maintained trail that circles around the gate, but from what I can tell also run on private property (same owner as #26).
I understand that the residents want to discourage people from parking and using grapetree as an access point, but I live adjacent to Grapetree and often run or bike though there.
