In support of a declaration issued by Sectary of Interior Salazar, the V.I National Park will add three fee–free weekends over the summer, the V.I National Park and V.I. Coral Reef National Monument Superintendent Mark Hardgrove has announced.
VINP will honor fee-free days at Trunk Bay on June 20 and 21, July 18 and 19, and again August 15 and 16.
These fee-free days are in addition to National Public Lands Day, September 26 and Veterans Day, November 11.
Trunk Bay is one of the most visited beaches on St. John, and is home to an underwater trail. One may snorkel over the reef and read plaques which identify coral and fish along the trail.
Hardgrove encourages visitors to Trunk Bay during the fee-free days to ride safari taxis in order to avoid over crowding in the Trunk Bay parking lot.
