We took a good walk around the back of Montserrat one Sunday afternoon. We’d been by it many times but never actually up or around it. The hike was fairly easy .
The walk took us through trees which often gave way to reveal incredible glimpses of the mountain side.
Montserrat is a sunning place, huge enough to spend days exploring. Despite its easy walks you should always respect the fact that it is a mountain as it will not respect you. The walk we took leads to a retreat and most other walkers were carrying ropes. When I reached the point in the final photo I found out why; there are sheer drops which plunge hundreds of feet and without the right gear or know-how a mountain like this will end you.
There are guided walks and groups that know the area so if in doubt contact them and get on a group hike.
