My boyfriend who hates hiking says this is his favorite hike :)
We went on a sunny day. Only go on a sunny day!
There are short bursts of energy where you climb steep ladders and stairs and then traverse narrow edges of the mountainside while holding onto chains and ropes. The entire hike is varied, with a fantastic view around every corner--the blue ocean, the red and white town, the port, mountain goats grazing, meadows of green, the volcanoes, the entire island!
This was one of the most fun and varied hikes I have ever done :)
*Only go on a sunny day.

I chose a bad day to hike, wet and cold with zero visibility at the top. Would definitely go again for the view!
