This track is one climb with I think 2000 staircases or so right to the top. It is a 3 hours Climbing only if you have some endurance. But I even met several people from 60 and older. Only the last 100 meter hight walk is into real rainforest, but humidity is high all along. Take at least 2 liter... More

Great hike to the top. Unfortunately we went a little late during the day and as we reached the top around 2 oclock the clouds were getting more and more dense. But it was a really nice trip anyway. The rainforest was fantastic (we even met a few snakes on the trail) - and the scenery between the clouds was... More

If you take the 1096 steps stair it will take you 1 - 1,5 hours to get to the top (if you are in a good chape. The steps could be steep. There is an alternative by taken the foodpath along the ecolodge, which means that you only have to climb the last 100m (in height!!!). It is a challenge... More

Okay this was my first time on Saba and Mt. Scenery's main entrance climb was right near where I stayed. I was with my girlfriend and we wanted to hike it! It had been raining a lot so we had no idea what we were in for and the hiking shop was closed. Being the adventurers we are we stupidly... More

My wife and I just returned from an eight day visit to Saint Martin and Saba. Without hesitation, our 30 hours spent on Saba may have been the most memorable. I am diver, but I would have cancelled my one tank dive to experience a full day along Mount Scenery with my wife. The views are breathtaking, the flora is... More

A group of us went hiking for the day. This hike is quite strenuous but rewarding once completed. Views at the top were not great as clouds can obstruct the view. Not sure I would do this hike again but very glad I did it.

If you are a hiker, this is the hike for you. Start at the entrance by the queens garden and you can hike through a quiet rainforest before getting to the infamous stairs. The foliage changes with the elevation changes. The trails are clearly marked- when you get to the top, go to the communication tower for the best View... More

Hiking on Mount Scenery was a incredible experience. The views are great and you really feel like you are one with nature. On the way to the top you will see a wide variety of flowers, trees and birds. Wear proper shoes and take a stick because the steps can be very slippery.

Nice and fairly easy climb. We did in in reasonably dry conditions but I can imagine in the wet it's very slippy as we came a cropper a couple of times. Take poles for the way down . I'm so glad my husband insisted on taking them as on the descent it was slippy. There was no view the day... More
