Places to off road in the Virgin Islands

This month our family is planning on going to St. Thomas and I was wondering if anyone knew of any good 4x4 trails on the island or any of the islands for that matter. We'll be there a week so we should be able to reach any of them in the British or US Virgin Islands

We're going to be renting a 2 door JK sport it looks like so preferably something that a stock wrangler can tackle with the front sway bar connected

Any trails anybody knows of?

Thanks

Actually I'm going to repost this in the international forum as I suppose it is more appropriate there

I did some wheeling in St Lucia, is was beautiful. Nothing too extreme, but it was a good time.

I doubt there is any place to off road on St. Thomas.
I did find info on off roading on St. John.

Just remember they drive on the left side of the road.

1st one- 1989 Cherokee Laredo. 12 great years
2nd one- 2001 Cherokee Limited. Got it before they were gone.

Well I meant designated trails by off roading, not just cutting my own path through the jungle

Thanks XJ2Timer, I'm going to look into that. I found 4 unpaved roads in the book I bought. I'll post them tomorrow for everyone else to see and have some input on

Would it always want to make you rent a Jeep on these small islands?

There were no "trails" when I was there. There are places where you can only get to by walking or an offraod vehicle like some beaches but in general the VIs are small islands where everybody want to be, Space is a premium and if it is flat enough to drive on it will have a time shared condo on it.

The trails in this book I got that say 4WD only unpaved roads on St. John's are the higher elevation section of Bordeaux Mountain Road, John's Head Road, Lameshur Road, and the very end of East End Road. Anybody know these? Are they challenging whatsoever or are they just bulldozed paths?

On Trip Adviser one person said they drove Bordeaux Mountain Road and said it was exciting. For someone with a lot of experience off the beaten path that may not mean a whole lot though
