Mount Scenery

Take a hike

A long-dormant volcano, Mount Scenery, consumes most of the five square miles of the island of Saba. Several trails lead to its 2,900-foot summit, but the eponymous Mount Scenery Trail is the true butt kicker, as eye-popping as it is strenuous. From the trailhead in Windwardside, a path of 1,064 stairs leads from groves of white cedar to fern-filled rain forest before ending in the Elfin Forest, where wild orchids give way to views of the Caribbean beyond.
