Hassel Island lies in Charlotte Amalie Harbor and is a short boat ride from Frenchtown. This historic, 135 acre property is currently maintained by the St. Thomas Historical Trust and the National Park Service. Knowledgeable guides will take you on the 3.5 miles of well-maintained trails to explore the Danish and British colonial past. You will explore Danish Prince Frederiks' Battery, The British Officer's Quarters and Enlisted Barracks, Garrison House, Cowell's and Shipley's Batteries, all examples of the military importance of the Island. Creque's Marine Railway, Royal Mail Steam Packet Company, Hamburg- American Line shipping Facilities and other maritime ruins, as well as a visit to the Leprosarium will give you a glimpse into St. Thomas life in the late 1700's. Hear about the Island's connection to the American Revolution, the tales of the Coaling Ladies, Sea Captains and Privateers, WWI espionage along with other stories of island life. Hiking trails are a moderate 3 on a scale of 5. Good hiking shoes are a must, bring plenty of water and sunscreen. Reservations required 48 hours in advance if possible.
