Unlock and share the beauty of the Blue and John Crow Mountains in Jamaica!

You can promote natural beauty and volunteerism in Jamaica through the Jamaica Trail Project. Donate to this joint effort by the Jamaica Conservation and Development Trust (JCDT) and the Council of Voluntary Social Services (CVSS) to rehabilitate thousands of metres of trail, primarily by volunteers. The Freedom Trail will showcase the unique enchanting forests of Blue and John Crow Mountains; its clean air, lush terrain, and cascading streams. Along the trail visitors will learn the history and culture of the legendary peoples – the Windward Maroons and the many communities who make the mountains their home. In February 2020, a small pilot effort will be taken to learn and scope out the dimensions of the rehabilitation and development of the first section. Work will continue in 2020 and a larger second effort will be February 2021. Sections will be mapped, planned and rehabilitated as resources become available. The full trail is estimated at 66 kilometres/41 miles long.
