Ascent Trip Report

561 or 562 steps, depending on which information you believe. Hooiberg can be seen all over Aruba. Getting to it is the first challenge. Come in from the north side and keep working your way back through a housing development/neighborhood. When you get there, you are confronted with the steps. About 400-450 are straight up the side of Hooiberg, then they turn left and continue to the top. Great views...I tried to run it, but in that heat it was tough. Took me 9 minutes, not a record, but that was the best I could do!
