At 653 meters (2,142 ft.) this is Tutuila Islandâ€™s highest peak, and can be traversed in half a day. The trailhead begins directly opposite of the Mt. Alava trail. To access the main trail, climb the white metal ladder up to the ridge south of the road. The hike is about three hours long, through a tranquil rainforest. Caution is advised, and it is safest to stay on the ridge for the entirety of the hike. Avoid hiking in rainy weather, as the trails can become slippery and dangerous.
