“Be ready for a hike”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Very impressive natural cave but it does require some hiking. It has writing and was the place where Birdman contestants stayed prior to beginning the contest.

“What a view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

We took horses up....glad we did as there really aren't very good alternatives....but also it was a bit tough to sit for the next several days. I actually think teh view from Poike is better.

“Highest point of the island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

You can either walk up or go by horse. You have a fascinating view of the entire island and the ocean on all sides. It is well worth the effort of getting up there.

“not special as they say...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

when you have some practice in hiking it is easy to find.
just walk up the "endless" hill to 512 m. the view is nice but there are some other hills where you see more...

“Long Hike but well worth it! This is a MUST SEE!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

Most tours or guides wont take you and do NOT try this on your own! Our private guide whom is amazing Carlos Cabezas (CabezasCarlos@Hotmail.com) insisted we do this as our last tour and so glad we did. Its about 2 hour easy hike each way, he brings amazing lunch for you, but at over 2000' and highest point on Island YOU must do this! The views of curvature of the earth are stunning and you can see 98% of the shoreline from the top!
