Good exercise, and great views! Not for the out of shape.

We went up from the north side. It's an intermediate, not dangerous hike through dense vegetation and some really cool giant bamboo clusters. Less than one hour bottom to top if... read more

We went up from the north side. It's an intermediate, not dangerous hike through dense vegetation and some really cool giant bamboo clusters. Less than one hour bottom to top if you're in any kind of shape. You can walk around the exterior of the cell tower fencing to see great southern and northwestern views. WARNING!!! We parked at the... More

Is part our 4x4 island trip a steep drive will take you to the top of this highest point on Antigua, from which you can glimpse the neighbouring islands of Montserrat and St. Kitts. At the top, a communications tower with a locked gate so you cannot technically stand on 'top' of the mountain. Our driver and guide said he... More

The hike trail is most paved and so it's easy to find your way. However, it's really steep so you'd need to take your time or be really physically fit. All in all, it was super fun to do as a group and the view at the top was so worth it!

The steep road which you can drive up in a 4x4 is not the best hike up the mountain, but you can reach the start by minibus (to/from Old Road). It took me 45 minutes to the top. It was a hot, early afternoon. I was alone. You have to walk a mile or so before the road starts to... More

Hiked to the top with the Sugar Ridge excursion. Worth the view, but it is a STEEP climb! I was as amazed to see the concrete drive going straight up as I was to see the view at the top.

Be careful driving up Mount Obama. Some of the path is paved, some is dirt, and the incline can be severe at a few points. It is a one lane drive. At the top, there is a locked gate and a communications tower, so you cannot technically stand on 'top' of the mountain. But you can walk around the fenced... More

My wife and I walked up from the sign that says only 4 wheel drive vehicles beyond this point. If you walk alongside the fence at the top you will come out on a rocky area from which there are fabulous views. In my wife's words "It's a stunning part of the world." Definitely worth the climb.

We drove up in a hired RAV4 which is kind of a 4x4 and we struggled at several points due to the steepness of the road and the lack of power from the car. Upon reaching the top I noticed the front tyres virtually had no tread left but thankfully it was dry. Going down was seat belts off and... More

Firstly, you don't need a guide to go up this peak as there is a paved road all the way up to the top. Second, do not drive up this paved road unless you have a decent 4X4. I hiked up this peak and honestly would not recommend anyone going up via motor vehicle. There are prolonged distances of steepness... More

Firstly, a word of warning. If your guide book suggests a trip up Boggy Peak (or Mount Obama as it is somewhat sycophantically been re-named) and doesn't mention that a 4x4 is absolutely required then throw your guide book in the bin. The road is very steep and badly maintained in many places, to the extent that getting a normal... More
