In this recreation area, a part of the Blue and John Crow Mountains National Park, nature trails winding through the rugged terrain offer you the chance to spot some of the island's most reclusive creatures. Be on the lookout for the national bird, the streamer-tail hummingbird (known locally as the doctor bird) and the rare swallowtail butterfly. Rustic camping facilities are available, including showers and shelters. It's about 15 mi (25 km) north of Kingston on a very slow and winding road.
