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.

Absolutely breath taking. One of my favorite excursions here in Jamaica!!!!

It was a fun hike with guide. Michael was our guide and he would let us take pictures and he would even taking them for us!!

Fun and beautiful. much better than Dunn River Falls

(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

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.

Simply WONDERFUL the only drawback (which I did not suffer) you must arrive very early, from the opening on your own if you want to enjoy the falls virtually alone. When we left it was crazy the world waiting online that was arriving by bus from hotels and still pirating the days of cruising. I have no one but us on ALL our photos. Versus the tourists in organized activity as it is horribly crowded with people. A must to do at the opening!

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.

amazing!!!! teamwork is key here! You can do it! The key is to feel with your feet before you step and listen to your guide!

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

My wife and I completed this short river hike on our honeymoon and had an amazing time. The hike is very fun and extremely unique. I forget how much it cost to get into the park but it was well worth it for the fun we had.
