The view at the top is lovely but tough to see (and a little anti-climatic) as you're avoiding all the towers etc at the top. It is an easy walk up an old road however there are 2 pretty steep sections. For better views and more interesting hike I would do signal hill hike at wallings nature reserve or nelson dockyard to pigeon beach instead.

Mount Obama as it is now called. Climbed from the Christian Valley side. Mostly under canopy and best done very early in the morning. We started at 0645 hrs. Humidity and heat is the worst part but the walk within the forest is lovely. Last bit is a very steep climb but the small view at the - almost top is lovely. Would be better if it was attended to and a seat placed. Right at the top was a signal station which was locked and a small path to the right which I think you could go around. By that time we decided not too. Would be better if there were more information at the top but a great hike and one I would recommend. Take lots of water, you will need it. One aspect to mention, the trail is very well marked.

We did the hike from the north (from the Jennings Road). It's a short drive / taxi ride from there to the car park at the start of the hike. We were warned by several locals who all said that it is a really difficult hike and that you need a guide. Two points: 1. you do NOT need a guide. It is a fairly easy path to follow. There is a map at the bottom of the hike next to the car park. The trial was fairly easy to follow (February 2020) and is also clearly shown on the Maps.Me app. 2. It really isn't as difficult as all the locals seem to think. We are reasonably fit, but we're certainly not marathon running, triathletes. It took us about one hour to do the trial to the top.

There is then a circular route back down via the Ridge Trail (also shown on Maps.Me). This is longer than the uphill hike and took us about 1 hour 20 mins.

Key piece of advice if you are planning on doing this trail is to leave early. The heat and humidity is probably the most difficult aspect of the hike. We started at 7 am and that was a good time to do it. I wouldn't have wanted to do it at midday.

The view at the top is not fantastic, but you do get some reasonable views across the island. For an hour or so hike it's worth it.

We were lucky and there was a local hiking group at the top who let us in the enclosed area to get to the highest point, but if you're not so lucky then we did notice a reasonably sized hole cut in the fence if you walk round the back! Clearly someone made their own access and I would certainly have used it to get a sneaky peek if the entrance had been locked.

We went on a hike up Boggy Peak with Vorn, Sugar Ridge's walking guide. Vorn was very entertaining and we actually learned a lot about local plants and history. The view from the top is great and while I'm glad I went, this was a fairly intense hike. Make sure to go early in the day to minimize the heat (we left at 6 am) and bring lots of water.

I hiked up the trail on the north side. The road from Jennings to get to the gate (or picnic area) is bad but my small rental car made it. It had rained a fair amount the previous night so the trail was muddy. I don't think the trail has had much use lately as it is very overgrown and I got soaked and a bit scraped up going through all the vegetation. I did lose the trail initially after a few minutes as I failed to cross the creek at one point, but backtracked and from then on had no problems (the maps.me app shows the trail). The trail joins the road for the final 10 minutes or so. At the top if you carefully follow along the fence to the left there is a spot where the fence is lower and one can get over (otherwise the views are hard to get). I'm in good shape and enjoyed the workout. It took me about 90 minutes round trip going pretty fast (excluding the losing the trail part early on). I'm glad I hiked it but not sure I would recommend it unless you are fit and adventurous.

Me and my good friend looked for a simpler walk to do during our stay in Antigua, Mount Obama/Boggy Peak came up as a suggestion. We did not quite realize how hot it was going to be and although we are both quite fit the heat got the better of us and we really struggled. We were sweating more than we could drink and when we finally reached the top (after 2 hours) we were both quite done with the whole idea, I'm pleased we did it but I recommend it to people used to exercising in intense heat, it was very steep in places and the view at the top was very shielded by trees, bushes and the top areal, I would not do it for the view alone, rather for a bit of a workout. Going back down took half the time and was a lot easier. I would not do it again on a hot day in the blazing sun.

Once you are in Antigua , you realise how small the island actually is. My friend and I was told about Mount Obama and the fantastic view you get from the top( most of the Island since this is the highest peak).

We left early by taxi from our hotel near Jolly beach. We brought plenty of water and snacks since we were told it’s about a two hours walk up and one hour down.
The weather was great , sunshine and 28 degrees Celsius.
The taxi driver dropped us off at the bottom of the road and we agreed to meet him again in three hours.
After 10 min walking we were panting and completely wet from sweating. (We are both fit, or were before this walk)
The walk was slowly getting steeper and steeper the further along we walked. At one point I used my IPhone to measure the degree of the hill and it was just over 20. It doesn’t sound so steep but it was, especially in 28 degrees heat.
Anyway after resting about 20 times (actually lying down to try to get cool under the trees) and drinking 2 litres of water each we made it!!!
The view was ok.... It was a bit of a anticlimax. After the hard walk in gasping sunshine you come to a radio mast . You have to follow a path to the right of the gate and once you come to a clear area there is another mast ( probably giving off loads of radiation) . The view is not great unfortunately because of all the trees and cables in the air. We did take some nice photos though.
Walking down was a piece of cake ( maby not if you have bad knees).
We made it back to the taxi driver 3 min late!
Later in the evening we both suffered flu symptoms, shivering etc and went to bed without eating dinner. We slept 12 hours non stop. Just a warning to our fellow Scandinavian people, we’re not made for this weather 😅😅
( we did get overtaken by an Italian couple who showed no sweat in their face)

Boggy Peak (or Mount Obama) is a must see in Antigua. The hike up is steep and it's best that you be in ok shape. The hike down via a different trail could be treacherous at times, but we were fortunate to be with a guide from our hotel (Sugar Ridge) who pointed out all the tropical wonders as we walked up. It was a wonderful experience. Be sure to have sunscreen and bug spray.

We parked at the Mount Obama car park, about a mile or so along track from Jennings. From there we walked up to the top. Not that well maintained a path. Also very steep in places, especially once you meet the road. We're in reasonable shape - the walk took us almost 2 hours, including quite a few stops.

At the top, it's worth getting into the compound through the hole in the fence. Views are pretty good.

Took us an hour to get back down.

Only do this if you're in reasonable shape!

Does not matter how you get up to Boggy Peak, but you must get up there. It is a great achievement to reach the Summit. To native Antiguans, it is like reaching the top of My Everest. I have claimed this peak on past occasions from the Cade's Bay entrance and also from the Christian Valley entrance. I prefer the Christian Valley path since one is able to pull oneself up by holding on to trees, whereas Cade's Bay is a paved road. Last year I went by an all-wheel vehicle. That was great, but I missed the thrill of exerting energy. The view from the top is superb. Will do it again and again.
