  • Steep trail and worth it. The views are spectacular. With clouds and mist, just waiting for King Kong to show up.
  • We did the hike starting at Sandy Cruz, through the Elfin forest, and ending at the Mount Scenery Trailhead in Windwardside. (made it in time for happy hour at Tropics too!) This is such a great hike since most of it is under the cover of trees so not too hot. If you're doing the Elfin forest make sure to go in the dry season, even still when we went it was muddy! There were a few very slippery spots where it would be easy to fall. Definitely do this hike with a buddy or group. The forest itself was AMAZING. So beautiful, tranquil and lush! The portion of the hike on Sandy Cruz trail has amazing views. There are a few spots that could use more trail markers, especially at the intersection of Elfin Forest and Mount Scenery trail, so maybe hike with a map or study the directions before you go.
