If the weather is not clear I don't advise this hike, unless it's something you just want to check off a bucket list. When I was there railings were being installed, which was a bonus. It has very muddy and slippery patches so if you are carrying a camera be careful. The view from the top is amazing, and I... More

hands down, it is a pretty long stairway up the mountain...BUT, its really worth it. while hiking upstairs you're sourrounded by beautiful trees and amazing jungle atmosphere...flowers you might not have seen before and the largest banana plants imagineable...the view on top is breathtaking...really, go for it!

It is a route for all ages. It is very relaxing and offers a state of peace. Viewed from the top (where the sky is not cloudy) scenery is wonderful. When it rains, the trail becomes slippery and dangerous!

The hike was dangerous when we were there because the trail was slippery from rain! Be sure you have good shoes and a walking stick. But the view from the top is worth the trek.

My boyfriend and I are very physically fit, but still found it challenging to hike the mountain without hiking poles as some stairs were very steep and slippery. We ended up finding a stick in the woods that we used as a hiking pole. You can also rent hiking poles from the tourist office. The overall hike took 3 hours... More

Slippery in spots and a bit of a clamber at the summit if you want to get to the true top but a wonderful hike.

I'm short and the stairs were hard as hell! Took me 98 minutes up and 89 down. I was sore the next couple of days but wouldn't have missed this opportunity for anything in the world. I hiked a volcano! Amazing! And, Saba is an amazing island with amazing locals. Love this place!

A very nice hike from Windwardside up to the highest point on the island. Takes less than two hours roundtrip or SHOULD take less than that. Might want to consider a rain jacket even if sunny, can be wet and foggy at the top. Study shoes too not just flip flops

This is a lovely, largely shaded hike through attractive foliage and flowers. There were only a few people along the trail so it was easy to stop to take photos or enjoy the views.

To us, Dutch couple, it was a great experience to reach the highest point of the Dutch Kingdom on our honeymoon. The flora and fauna were magnificent and the trail was really quiet. Too bad the weather wasn't that great. From around 600/700 meters we walked in the fog and the view from the top wasn't better. Eventhough it was... More
