About Us

The Jamaica Trail Project is a project of the Jamaica Conservation and Development Trust (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. 


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.


We are involved with the well-known Blue Mountain Peak trail and the trails of Holywell Park, the Cunha Cunha Trail, Watch Hill and Nanny Falls Trails. They are part of Jamaican history and we all need to ensure they are maintained, preserved and available to all.

Our Goals


  • Create a sustainable system of trail development and maintenance in the Blue Mountains that involves volunteers, the local community and tour partners.


  • Assist in to protecting the Blue Mountains environment.

  • Educate and train trail users to a high level of environmental sensitivity and outdoor ethics.

  • Provide a learning laboratory for outdoor experiential education where educators and others can teach about nature, natural medicine, Jamaican natural and human history.
