This hidden falls has to be hiked to with a maroon village guide from Moore Town. I describe it as a great exercise event in nature and a slice of Jamaica history of Nanny who fought back against the British with gorilla warfare in the John Crow and Blue Mountains. This independent self governing village shows how the descendants of... More

My wife and I took a trip up to this place with a local tour guide. The falls offer a stunningly refreshing swim and bathe! Was really awesome- more people should know about this!

This place is just magical. We came here after a short tour in Nanny Town. The falls are about a half an hour hike and so worth it. The waterfall plunges into a deep pool which is great for swimming in. Really peaceful too, we were the only people there!

We hiked up the road out of Mooretown until we reached the falls (45 min?). It was a beautiful secluded spot to swim and relax.

Beautiful mountain ride. 45 min. Take taxi to last stop. Ask for guides Marvin and Shane. They will take you to the Falls through jungly... More
