2877 feet above sea level. The top often is in clouds, so pick your day if your primary goal is a panoramic photo at the top! Saba has several beautiful hikes, and some are arduous. Wear footwear that has a good tread, suitable for wet sloping rocks/steps, and you will have an easier descent.

This is a must do when on Saba. Especially great if it is a clear sunny days because the views form the summit are incredible. The trailhead is located right in Windwardside and the Trail Shop at the bottom can give you all the information you could possibly need. Challenging 90 min hike to the summit.

My friend and I travelled from St Maarten to Saba For a day trip. We decided to check out the island by hiking to the top of the highest peak of the Netherlands. The hike was 1000+ steps and challenging for two people who are occasional hikers but not bad that we could not do it. When you get to... More

We book the tour through our guest "Idolem Evasion" out of Ste Maarten. It was a nice hike up and down the Mount Scenery. Has for its name, the scenery was amazing.

My wife and I made this trek and had quite the workout. The path included lots and lots and lots of steps with some having hand rails (which made some of the hike much easier). The views along the way were incredible and we took an entire scrapbooks worth of pictures. So much diversity of flora-- incredible colors, shapes and... More

After 1064 steps you reach the top of Mount Scenery, spectacular view of Windwardside, St John and Bottom. It is strenuous but worth it.

Hiked to the top of mt. Scenery which is the highest point of the kingdom of the Netherlands. The hike was partially in the clouds and some muddy parts of the trail. So, flipflops is a big no-no. The view is spectacular in case of clear skies, hire a guide which can add a lot of value to the hike... More

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!
