Extremely steep in places which made it very challenging, especially in the heat. Encountered several dogs protecting their properties but managed to steer clear of them. It is isolated on the back half of the climb. The last few hundred yards were not paved and a section at the end was overgrown with grass and prickly bushes. At the top there are two brick compounds housing a cell tower and other antennas. Surprisingly no locks preventing anyone from going in and climbing on the cinderblock base. But the views from there are spectacular. You can get a 360 degree view of the island and can even see St. Barts. The trip down was almost as challenging because of the rocky unpaved sections. Loose gravel and dirt makes the descent somewhat treacherous if you’re not extra careful. All in all, well worth the effort and time.

That isn't a hike, it's a very steep walk!

Well I did half the trail. Hiked from the cruise ship dock on the other side of the Bay. I felt a little off the beaten path while hiking over there. I didn't go up to the lookout because I just didn't feel comfortable by myself. There is a lot of hurricane damage and repair going on the further from the beach you are. Some sketchy people too. Was by myself so I walked to where the actual Fort Amsterdam is down the hill. Also, I couldn't find where to go to the lookout up top,Much easier in the heat too. The fort Amsterdam ruins and old cannons are pretty cool and offers some great views across both bays. You have to walk through the Little Divi Resort to get there. NIce place to check out with pools, bars, and its own beach. Again, they are still fixing stuff from the hurricane. Given the amount of time we had in port, I'm glad that I went the route I did. Probably a shorter hike and allowed for more beach time. Took me bout an hour and a half from the middle of the beach in Philipsburg. Will post pics of the Fort!
