This is a hiker's paradise and a nature-lover's dream. It is home to a plethora of native animals and plants. The route from the city via Gordon Town Road will take you to Newcastle, the former home of British Regiments, which is presently occupied by the Jamaica Defense Force. Also on the way is Hollywell . For those who are fit enough for the conquest, the sight of the triangle at the peak is worth enduring the climb up the challenging Jacob's Ladder.

Words cannot describe the scenery and views when you drive up into the Blue Mountains!! Along the way, be sure to stop off at some of the roadside shops to chat with the wonderful people...buy some bananas and sugar cane from them!! The vegetation is beautiful up there and it does get somewhat cooler than in the city...a light windbreaker or longsleeved shirt might be a good thing to have handy. The Blue Mountains are a place you must visit while in the Kingston area!!
One cannot really experience Jamaica without visiting the highest point of the island. At the peak you experience this wonderful point of nature. It is told that on a clear day you can see the tip of Cuba.

The Blue Mountains are surprising and truly awe inspiring. After spending some time on the beach, it was incredible to change pace completely and head up unbelievably difficult roads to 4,000 feet. There I explored lush, gorgeous terrain. The Jamaicans I met in the Blue Mountains were also different -- friendly, hard working people who had not become jaded by all the tourism of places like Ochos Rios or Negril. I stopped off at Whitfield Hall after seeing it in a guidebook and got a guide to help me go to Blue Mountain Peak, which is over 7000 feet high. Not what I expected from a Caribbean trip. Beautiful. The tropics and the mountains in one package. I will go back.
