Ascent Trip Report

Yeah Mon, Jamaica nice, Enjoyed a Great adventure hiking Blue Mountain Peak or simply “The Peak” (as referred to by locals) at an elevation of 7,402 feet/2256 meters, the highest point in Jamaica ????. Blue Mountain Peak is one of the highest mountains in the Caribbean and only on the island of Hispaniola (Haiti and Dominican Republic) will you find higher mountains. Did it the relaxing way for two days, hiking up to Portland Gap for an overnight stay and an 4:00 AM start on the Second day for Sunrise at the Peak, which unfortunately did not happen rather misty, and cold. Great Trail through Coffee Plantation up to Portland Gap where you have several Cabins for an overnight stay. Great Fun and well worth it. ??

Please see below GPS data and other Information.

Happy Hiking, Josef !!!
