Blue Mountain STX

I was wondering if anyone has any info on hiking up Blue Mountain, ie: How hard is it? (For example, I can do the lighthouse hike with relative ease) How do we get there?

Have been walking a lot lately and looking for new challenges.

Thank you!

-Beth

I know the main road up Blue Mountain starts in Little Fountain and the towers are up West scenic but that's about it. Not sure about hiking.

You should contact the St. Croix Hiking Association (www.stcroixhiking.org). They usually do a Blue Mountain hike once a year. It's not a strenuous hike, generally, especially if you take your time. Most of it is along a pretty well-defined road/path, and the elevation increase is not severe. When I've done it, we've used the trailhead at Mon Bijou.

Google maps can help you figure out where the roads are. Zoom in/out to get your bearings. The clusters of buildings around the radio call letters are about the highest point.
