  • Great hike
This is not an easy hike as you get higher up the mountain and I do not recommend to got on a rainy or post-rainy day. Make sure you get some relatively good boots or shoes that has got some grip. All in all, it is a very nice hike to do and the view up there is gorgeous - so green as you could see from the pictures!

  • Nice short hike
We climbed this mountain on a gorgeous clear day and the views of the island were staggering. We could see pretty much every coast line. It’s not a difficult hike but I wouldn’t like to try it after rain. Would advise good footwear and it’s not suitable if you don’t like heights. Some steep scrambles at the top with shear drops off the sides. Gets the adrenaline going in some places. It’s a real good jaunt for a few hours. It took us just under 2 hours up and back so it doesn’t use up too much valuable time if you are in a tight schedule!
