My phone only counted 38 floors but it felt intense! Probably because all that elevation is stacked into that little half mile, and you’re climbing a steep staircase the whole way up. Regardless, it was a lot of fun and it was Beautiful! I did it twice over the weekend and will probably keep doing it again while I’m out here! *trail/staircase is perfectly fine, the cement actually looks like it’s pretty new. Bring water - aruba heat and humidity is no joke!

It is basically a set of stairs that goes up the mountain to a small radio installation at the top. Still, it is a fun little hike and deceptively challenging if you aren’t used to climbing stairs or hills. But don’t let that deter you. There are plenty of places to stop and enough shade so even inexperienced folks should be able to handle it without much of a problem. Great views of the island from the top and a pleasant breeze the entire way. An hour should be plenty of time to go up, take some photos and enjoy the view, and then walk back down.

We walked up the Hooiberg steps for sunrise and everyone in our group loved the experience. I gave it 4 instead of 5 because the top itself is less scenic with the cell tower and cables etc. We scouted the route a few days before so we knew how to find the trailhead in the dark. Saw lots of goats on the walk down. Fairly easy hike for most people I should think.

First to Review

Basically a long staircase, with a few spots of shade. The summit is pretty unfinished/rough, but pretty nice views.
