The last time I hiked Margaret Hill I entered from the trail head across from Caneel Bay resort. (see Hike to Water Catchment and Margaret Hill – Worth the view!) This time we entered from Centerline Road and headed to the Watercatchment and then up to the Margaret Hill lookout.
A shorter route than from the Caneel Bay entrance to the Margaret Hill overlook can be accessed from Centerline Road. To get to the trail head from the Hummingbird Hill villa you exit the gate, turn left onto Gifft Hill Road and then turn left onto Centerline Road. The trail entrance is on the right, a short distance on Centerline Road. There is parking for one or two cars at the entrance and make sure you pull far enough off the road.
The trail to the Caneel Bay watercatchment includes this old concrete gutter that led water to the basin. Remains of the concrete can be seen as you hike down to the catchment from Centerline Road.
The extremely clear day afforded us some great views from the lookout point.
