Worth the hike, especially after a delicious caribbean breakfast of Johnny cakes and salt fish! ☺ don't get discouraged, take breaks and plenty of water...and of course your camera!

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

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
