the hike looks relatively easy till you get to mid way. The steps onwards are carved from the rocks and it's tiring on the knees and thigh. 2 summits at the top and recommend both. one is easy walk the other will be a muddy path and need to pull a rope to get up. btw, get the certificate from...

Rather easy hiking to Mt Scenery, a potentially active volcano and the highest point in the Netherlands (887m). The trail itself is nice and it can give you a good impression of the Caribbean rain forest. Before I have hiked in more than 15 Caribbean islands - Mt Scenery is not the best but it's worth to do, especially when... More

We hiked up Mount Scenery starting at the trail head above Queen's Garden in the Bottom. Many, many, stairs, but a great view at the top! Make sure you bring a walking stick as steps can get slippery on the way down.

What a beautiful, beautiful island. The vistas were breathtaking. The hiking was fun. The foliage was lush. The island is nicely maintained.

We have taken this hike when the mountain top was completely covered in a thick layer of clouds. As a result, when we reached the top, we saw absolutely nothing, so keep that in mind. The hike, though very steep, is easy to follow, with lots of supporting steps here and there. Even if the summit is covered in clouds,... More

Great hike, about One and half Hour round trip, with great view of the rain forest, Windwardside and the caribbean sea. I do not recommend doing this hike after rainy Day or in the rain. The steps get very slippery. Do not forget to stop by the tourist office after your hike to claim your certificate of conquering the highest... More

This is a very taxing hike and the view is often obscured when you arrive. The aerials and rubbish atop the mountain detract from the experience and Saba should really clean the place up and install some safe viewing platforms. Sandy Cruz offers similar pleasure with less struggle.

wear a good pair of sneakers/climbing shoes and be ready for a beautiful hike if the weather is clear.

We only hiked a small portion, during a day trip to Saba. Walked downhill from road back to Windwardside. Steep trail, but easy footing. Very pleasant unspoiled forest. Wish I were staying longer so I could have done the actual hike all the way up Mt Scenery, area is beautiful.

We loved Saba -- wish we had more time there. Our taxi guide took us mid-way up Mt. Scenery and we walked down straight into Windwardside. Both the hike and the island are clean and green and very refreshing. Our hike didn't take long, and the atmosphere was temperate and shady. We were glad we brought water with us. It... More
