“Disappointing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

If you want a rugged hike with no view of the ocean, this is for you. Don't climb the mountain thinking you will be able to see anything but trees

“It's a hike!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

If you are on ship time and need to get a hike in during your stay then you will enjoy this locale as my wife and I. The views are limited but are found in spots. In fairness we did not choose all the paths allowed during the hike. We found it rewarding. You definitely do not want to chance it in flip flops, high heels, bare feet, etc. This trail has no built wooden or concrete walk type paths. It is very local created and offers exactly what is described... a hike with views and the highest point on the island. Like most locations we have visited on the Island this is no exception to not being wheel chair accessible. The fee I believe was $3.00 per and the gentleman we paid was a local and very helpful. There is a small food and beverage shop with souvenir's in the rear for your purchase. The owner's name is Jim. You will find him very delightful, informative, his stories compelling and his food fantastic (he is a chef by trade). Try the lobster sandwich and relax.

“Great hike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

Well defined trail system and a great hike to the highest point in the BVI. Several lookout spots make for great viewing and you can get a trail map at the store ( Top of the Hill) near the parking area. The bar owner is very knowledgeable and polite. We stopped in for a banana smoothie and a painkiller after the hike which took about 1.5 hours. One of the best things we did on the island.

“Long hike with one nice view”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

We just did the short hike loop that goes to the summit in about 45 minutes. The forest is very dense with only one real lookout towards the southern shore of the island. The view was nice, but I do not think most people will feel it was worth the effort. If you have young children or if you are a bit older I think you will find the trails very difficult. In addition, they are not marked very well. Luckily, a shop proprietor at the trail entrance had a map for us to use and figure out our turns.

“Nice rain forest hike, but not much of a view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

We enjoyed the hike and the exercise, but were a little disappointed that it was mostly in the trees. Not much view but you could see the old remnants of the rock terraces from the old sugar cane plantations in the rain forest.
