Visited late in the day. Many paths and not clearly marked but eventually found it. It was worth it! Absolutely beautiful panoramic views!!! We drove to the top and parked and hiked the 10-15 minute walk. The hike was steep. We would definitely recommend this...More

We did this hike--the complete hike, starting at Loterie Farm--again after doing it four years ago. It was still as hot, humid, and buggy as we remembered it! More ants this time though, watch those suckers because if you stop anywhere they are they will...More

It was not that easy to drive near to. . . The signage on the island is not necessarily great, and the parking was not terribly plentiful, but we made it work. It's a nice little hike, and the views are great.

We, two adults and a teen boy, read TA reviews and worried about car theif around the top area. So we decided not to drive the car close to the top. We parked the car at Loterie Farm, paid $5 for each, got a map,...More

Very fun hike with excellent views. Many people drive their vehicle to the top, although I highly recommend (if you are able) starting your hike at Loterie Farm to get the full experience. The welcome desk at Loterie Farm supplied us with a map and...More

You can hire a taxi to do that or ask the local taxi stand to provide you with that type of fare. The charge is usually per person so be sure to ask that question. If you are adventuresome, rent a scooter.
