“hard to climb”
Reviewed 8 January 2013

We went there by a compact rent-a-car. Just little bit hard to
arrive with muddy, rough road. You'd better have a 4WD car.
It is also difficult to go there because there was not an appropriate sign along the road. The view from there was
amazing.

“Fantastic views”
Reviewed 22 December 2012

Take an hour to drive this. Just slow down and take your time in the rough dirt roads. We did this trip in a Toyota Corolla and had no issues. Best picture taking on the island.

“A must, be careful up here with a moped..”
Reviewed 19 November 2012

The road at the top is steep and has loose gravel. I know of two people on mopeds who took a spill up there. If your' slow and careful- no problem. The views can't be beat- it's the highest point on the island. There are informative signs that tell of different aspects of the Battle of Saipan.

“Great view”
Reviewed 15 October 2012

This is the best place to get a panaramic view of almost the entire island. A popular tourist stop so don't expect to be alone.

“Lovely 360 degree view of Saipan, worth a visit.”
Reviewed 2 August 2012

Lovely 360 degree view of Saipan, worth a visit. It is a long hike to the top and I would advise anybody to hire a four wheel vehicle to visit the mountain, but when your at the top you'll see why it's worth a visit. The view of Saipan is lovely and I'm sure you'll be snapping away with your camera's when you reach the top. Enjoyed visiting this site.
