This hike was so beautiful you're in the rain forest. Its a very steep hike and lots of stairs. It guides you directly to the top of the island. You are literally on top of the island. Its worth every step

We had a nice climb and it was rewarded with an amazing view at the top of the Mountain. Saw many interesting plants along the climb.

The feeling of accomplishing this mountain was totally satisfying. It took me about 90 mins to get to the top but I know of one person who can do it in less than half of that, he is 30 years younger than me though! The climb is hard work but so beautiful and it doesn't matter if you take all... More

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
