Great hiking trails
sty 2020 • Pary
We did the hiking to the Quill and it was one of the best hikes in the Carribean. The trails are well maintained and also marked so you cannot get lost. They are breathtaking views from the top.

Great little volcano

Tracks to the top of the Quill are well signed and enjoyable - good views from the top but not many en route. It’s definitely ’the’ thing to do in Statia.
I would suggest you go at first light as it gets very hot during the day even if you are in tree shade. You can combine walks - up to the rim, to the panorama, into the crater (and if you want to - around the mountain).
To the rim at least is achievable for most people.
(No litter which was a very nice change in Statia unfortunately! Hopefully somebody in tourism will realise the importance of cleaning their litter act up!)
Boven is very dry and hot do I didn’t get to do much - early morning and in the coolest months would be best for walking here!

A must see in St.Eustatius
maj 2019
A visit to St. Eustatius is really not complete without a visit to the Quill. The trail is moderate and manageable even for the not so fit. Nothing beats the feeling of accomplishment when you get to the top and the view at the lookout point makes for wonderful pics. Great way to spend a few hours.

Good hiking options - just watch the sun on the south side
kwi 2019 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
Quill has some good, web-marked trails. Some are more difficult than others (particularly the two shorter trails along the crater's rim) but you get some great views and it is a pleasant walk. I did the 'around the mountain' trail as well, going north to south (clockwise). I did this because I had heard the north trail was a bit more difficult, so I wanted to start with that and end with the easier trail. In theory this worked well, except the south trail has far less tree coverage than the north. So either go counterclockwise or else make sure you're away from the south side (especially around white wall) during the peak heat of the day, as there's not much cover. Wear a hat, good hiking shoes (boots not required, but this isn't a flip-flop trail) and bring lots of water.

Super to reach the crater
gru 2018 • Znajomi
Glad for the shady path up the side with land crabs. Excellent guide took us down into the crater. Virgin forest, so huge trees. Found a snake who was unfazed to be handled.

good hike at the end of the day
maj 2018 • Biznesowy
With 600 meters we walked the Quill in about 1 hour (we are not that in excellent shape). Started at the beginning of the track. Nice path, not to steep, well maintained. There are different viewing pints on the way. Those are not that good maintained. We didnt saw much on those points :) You can walk into the crater for about 20 minutes.

Climbing the Quill
kwi 2018 • Pary
Climbing the Quill is definitely a must. This inactive volcano hides a great rainforest atmosphere inside. A great view, but a definite work out. Make sure to wear good shoes!

Beautiful place

I only walked halfway up, as the crater was closed at the time of my visit, but it was wonderful. I never did see that bridled quail dove I was hoping for, but it is just another reason to come back.

Must Do
mar 2018
I'm not much of a hiker but the trek to the top of The Quill is one of those "must do" things on Statia. There are a few different routes you can take (I chose a moderate difficulty) and the view from the top (and within the crater) makes it well worth the effort.

I didn't go all the way to the crater floor but I did go far enough down to realize that the environment within the crater is completely different. Think Jurassic Park. Whatever path you choose and no matter how deep into the crater you go, start early in the day, stay hydrated, and take your time so you can enjoy the sights along the way. Don't forget to buy your trail tag before you start.
