An experience going through the different climate zones, and those stairs are a great workout! Careful after a rain, even a few days later, as it can be very slick. We took the Bud's Trail down which was also slick at the top, but a different experience yet again as it was a path through the jungle, not paved/stairs like... More

It's a bit of a steep hike but the view is totally worth it. Pretty well maintained trail for inexperienced hikers so nothing to fear! Bring water and snacks--just in case. Plus your camera for obvious reasons. A must-do island activity!

Does it count if you only do part of the trail? It poured the morning I wanted to do this hike and it was also the only full day I was on Saba. The trail was slick and was concerned about coming back down the steps, so I only went part way. Beautiful trail!

I've taken this hike multiple times and it's an amazing journey. On an average pace up the mountain, it will take about 90 minutes to reach the summit. Plan on a little under an hour to get down. The views at the top can be hit or miss depending on the cloud cover but, regardless of the clouds, it's always... More

Beautiful hike with indeed great scenery. Not too difficult but when your out of shape you will definitely feel your muscles the next day... beware of shaky legs.

Definitely go up Mt. Scenery. It's a magical place, though maybe not the most beautiful trail Saba has to offer. Make sure you have good profile on your shoes, as the continuous fog and humidity can make the trail slippery. On good days you have an amazing view.

If the weather is not clear I don't advise this hike, unless it's something you just want to check off a bucket list. When I was there railings were being installed, which was a bonus. It has very muddy and slippery patches so if you are carrying a camera be careful. The view from the top is amazing, and I... More

hands down, it is a pretty long stairway up the mountain...BUT, its really worth it. while hiking upstairs you're sourrounded by beautiful trees and amazing jungle atmosphere...flowers you might not have seen before and the largest banana plants imagineable...the view on top is breathtaking...really, go for it!

It is a route for all ages. It is very relaxing and offers a state of peace. Viewed from the top (where the sky is not cloudy) scenery is wonderful. When it rains, the trail becomes slippery and dangerous!
