Blue and John Crow Mountains National Park Attractions

by Concierge.com

Blessedly abbreviated on signposts to BJCMNP, this nature preserve covers the eastern end of the island, between Kingston on the south shore and Port Antonio on the north.


Its almost 200,000 acres of wilderness rise to the island's highest point, Blue Mountain Peak, at 7,402 feet above sea level.

This area is a wonderland of tropical mist forests and primordial ferns, of witchcraft beans and pines, of gullies and skinny terraces where hardy farmers grow the famed Blue Mountain coffee.

The Blue and John Crow Mountains National Park (BJCMNP) is almost 200,000 acres when its topography is taken into consideration but is about 123,750 acres or 49,500 hectares on the map.


This is an indication of just how rugged its terrain of steep mountains and deep valleys is.

The BJCMNP covers 3 mountain ranges in eastern Jamaica and is the habitat and often last refuge for many of Jamaica's native, endemic and threatened species including the Giant Swallowtail Butterfly - largest butterfly in the Western Hemisphere and the animal on the Park's logo.

The site is also important for its cultural heritage being the historic home of the Maroons. Contact the managers of the BJCMNP - Jamaica Conservation and Development Trust (JCDT) for more information on the Park and its attractions - www.greenjamaica.org.jm and email jamaicaconservation@gmail.com
