“A must, be careful up here with a moped..”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

The road at the top is steep and has loose gravel. I know of two people on mopeds who took a spill up there. If your' slow and careful- no problem. The views can't be beat- it's the highest point on the island. There are informative signs that tell of different aspects of the Battle of Saipan.

“Great view”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

This is the best place to get a panaramic view of almost the entire island. A popular tourist stop so don't expect to be alone.

“Lovely 360 degree view of Saipan, worth a visit.”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

Lovely 360 degree view of Saipan, worth a visit. It is a long hike to the top and I would advise anybody to hire a four wheel vehicle to visit the mountain, but when your at the top you'll see why it's worth a visit. The view of Saipan is lovely and I'm sure you'll be snapping away with your camera's when you reach the top. Enjoyed visiting this site.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

The trip up is well worth it. Being the highest point on the island, you are able to see one end to the other. Take a trip up for sunrise or sunset, and make sure you make your way over to the historical info board.

“only place I know of where you get a 360 degree view of the Island of Saipan”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

The view is the whole trip. On this highest point on the island of Saipan the location itself is rather bleak and windswept. Can be full of Asian tourists and tour groups on ATV's and 4-wheelers making the drive up very dusty
