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

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
