I didn’t go straight to the top. I was mad drained but I went close enough and the view was spectacular. I plan to take it on again once I’m more fit.

Hiking

One of the most popular tourist spots in Jamaica. What makes this trip a bit unique is that you start in the ocean then climb the falls all the way to the top. Anywhere from ankle to waist deep cold spring water rushing past you. The footing can be a bit rough at times but it’s a very slow climb. Go early or late to avoid the crowds. Must see if you are in Jamaica!

Love this place! As it becomes more popular they are building more infrastructure. It’s sooo stunning and not to be missed. It’s like $20 entrance fee and then tip your guide.

Hiking

I traveled to Jamaica for my birthday 3 years ago and stumbled upon this gem of a hike. Beware: You can skip the guided hike but you may get hustled into paying. It’s a relatively short hike however there’s so much to do. Rope Swings, Cliff Diving, Waterfalls and a Cave System underneath a Waterfall. Such an awesome experience!

Hiking

I hiked this trail in 2014 with my then fiancée and a guide. We used a guide as we did the night hike in order to be there to catch the sunrise! The trail is easy to follow, but definitely challenging. I was in great shape at the time and was glad i was. My wife (now), was not and she suffered during and for 3-4 days afterward. No question a worthwhile hike thru lush forest higher up and steep coffee plantations down lower. We heard what we believe to have been wild hogs rushing off a couple of times but never saw them. We saw a huge variety of flora including wild orchids, which unfortunately were not in bloom. Stayed at Jah Bs guest house and would definitely recommend it. We started hiking about 1:45 a.m. and reached the summit about 5:30, maybe 20 minutes before sunrise. There was a low heavy cloud cover that rolled and boiled as the sunbeams began appearing. Beautiful sunrise and worth the trip! I rate this a moderate to hard hike. Recommend you do at least some conditioning beforehand. No guide needed if you’re doing a daytime hike. We wore 2 layers of clothes until about half way down.

This was an awesome hike up the waterfall, it started out slow everyone together in a line, but we ended up getting past that so I would get some pictures without so many people in them, it was much nicer going up alone than with the group

Hiking

(1/13/19) I recently completed the hike in 4 hours, a long and arduous hike to the top that started around 3:30 AM at Abbey Green (2.5 mi) going to Portland Gap and from there, another 3.5 mi to reach the peak. For me, this is a moderate to HARD hike but the trail and PEAK is beautiful! Lush ferns, wild mushrooms, beautiful fauna! Trail is well maintained. Lots of switchbacks and Jacob’s Ladder. It gets steeper each time, like stairway to heaven lol! Also, it gets slippery up there with uneven steps and loose rocks. Wearing a good hiking shoes is a must- my Salomon trail runners did ok for the most part! it is helpful as well to have trekking pole to save ur knees but could be done without one if endurance is great. I think u dont need a guide if day hiking but since we started before day break, we decided to have one who knows the mountain well. Overall, if visiting Jamaica, this hike is definitely a ✅

awesome trail, challenging but easy to follow. had to rush before sunset so pushed through in about 5 hours but 6-7 is pretty comfortable I would say. If driving, recommend parking at the police station downhill and paying someone local to drive you up to Whitfield Hall (trail head) in a 4x4

this is the best waterfall and the only waterfall is able to climb up for people。we hold each other’s hands during the climbing。the tourguider didn ’t give us chance to take pictures on own,I guess because they expect you to buy the vedio DVD at the end,40USD

Hiking

It has been my dream to hike Blue Mountain to reach to peak. We hiked from Whitfield Hall Hostel to the peak (about 7 miles). Let me tell you something friends, the soreness that I feel today is worth it. It is not everyday that one has the opportunity to stand above the clouds and laud such natural beauty. The Blue Mountain is not just home to the best coffee there are some endemic plant species, lichens, mosses and calla lilies that were so perfect they looked like plastic. As we emerged from the Elfin Forest at the peak I felt triumphant and fatigued at the same time. Whose great idea was this? Now that I am up here who the hell is going to take me down? I had this brainwave that Jeff would carry me on his back but he asked if I thought he was a jackass. The hike up was challenging yet doable. Going down was excruciating. I did not pack my hiking boots and feet suffered as they did have the support that was needed. Great hike. Bucket list item checked.

Tout simplement MERVEILLEUX le seul inconvénient (que je n’ai pas subi) vous devez arriver très tôt, dès l’ouverture par vos propres moyens si vous voulez profité des chutes pratiquement seule. Quand nous sommes parti c’était fou le monde en ligne d’attente qui arrivaient en bus des hôtels et encore pir les journées de croisière. Moi j’ai personne d’autre que nous sur TOUT nos photos. Versus les touristes en activité organisée comme c’est horriblement surchargé de monde. Un incontournable à faire dès l’ouverture!!!

Great trail for any time of day. We started around mid day and still were able to complete before 6 pm. Did a video review for anyone interested: look for Sailing Knotty Maria on YouTube or follow this link: https://youtu.be/cwA78g-SG1w

Jacob's Ladder at the beginning of the hike was a challenge but overall a moderately difficult hike. I did the sunrise hike which starts at 2:30 AM.

Best Falls I've ever climbed. You fall down a lot, but just get up and keep going. That's part of the adventure. Lots of fun. I went in July of 2011.

Great tourist trail. Not for someone looking for a serious trail to hike. Climb 900 feet up the side of a waterfall.
