The Jamaica Trail Project is a project of JCDT. It is a collaborative activity of Jamaican and international organizations to reopen, refurbish, maintain, and develop hiking trails in Jamaica that have historical, cultural and environmental conservation and preservation significance.Donate Now
You can promote this effort through the Jamaica Conservation and Development Trust (JCDT). JCDT, founded in 1988 as a Jamaican nongovernmental organization, manages the Blue and John Crow Mountains National Park and the area designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Our passions and interests are broad and tied to available resources when it comes to selecting trails to be maintained, re-opened or considered for developing newly. We are interested in the well-known Blue Mountain Peak trail and the trails of Holywell Park, the Cunha Cunha Trail, Watch Hill and Nanny Falls Trails. These trails allow us access to the outdoors which help us in so many ways physically and emotionally. They are part of Jamaican history and call for our attention to ensure they are maintained, preserved and available to all. There are hiking and fitness clubs, adventure travel and hiking operators that increasingly discover or re-discover places to hike that provide limited opportunities. We have names for over 40 trails but only a fraction of them are easily found or regularly hiked or even able to be hiked. We want to create better access to Jamaican trails, wherever they are.
Donations will be applied to equipment, supplies and specialized labor, training and volunteer support for hiking trail work which improve quality and access to the natural and cultural heritage of Jamaica.Donate Now
