Great hike to the top of Saba. Pick your day as a cap cloud forms on the peak. Great view of the island and the surrounding islands.

Took us longer than expected due to rain and wet rocks but was a great hike. Coming down on Bud's Mountain Trail saved a lot of steps on the way down.

We hiked the 1064 steps to the top. It's a tough 1 hour hike but worth it. The top is incredible. They locals really do a great job maintaining the trails. This hike is all stairs straight up the mountain. Bring water and hiking boots....More
