Don't get discouraged when you get to the top and see the do not enter sign. Get out and hike a few extra steps. Not recommended unles you are familiar with off road driving as road is very steep in parts and there is nowhere to turn around safely.

To get there...take the inland road at the inland banana grove adjacent to the Agricultural Centre east of Urlings, and drive inland. Stay to the main trail as it forks many times onto less traveled trails.

We drove to the base of Boggy Peak's access road with a small SUV until we got to the first steep incline. I have enough experience off-road driving to know that my little SUV would not make it up the 45 degree inclines on a muddy/wet surface. We parked at about 300' elevation at the intersection of the access road and a trail into the brush. The walk up took about 30 minutes and most of the access road is paved, but be careful, one small portion of the road was washed out due to a small slide, but still very passable. The shaded parts of the road are slick went wet and even our hiking boots slipped occassionally.

We were in luck as staff from Cable and Wireless were on site at the communications facility that covers the peak. They gave us free access to the site and a short tour of the facility. They apparently visit the site weekly to inspect, clean, maintain the grounds.

The views are awesome from inside the compound. Especially to the south and west. You can see almost 100% of Antigua, and weather permiting, most of the adjacent islands as well. Beautiful!

We spent about 1 hour taking in the view, taking video and photos.

If the gates to the facility are locked, the views can still be seen by working around the perimeter of the fence to a handful of gaps in the trees. If you can arrange to meet C & G while they are up there, its well worth a phone call to them to meet them at the top.

The hike down was quick and painless. In a rain, the road would be a challenge.

You can see some native birds, lots of geckos, and a mongoose or two along the way.

Take water, good solid boots, and a camera!
