Welcome to North Cockpit Country
Look at a road map of Jamaica and you’ll notice southwest Trelawny parish, inland of Falmouth is…blank. Just a big green eye of tantalizing mystery peeking at you from the tangle of towns, villages and roads that is the rest of Jamaica’s face. So, what’s that eye? Jamaica’s most rugged quarter: a 1295-sq-km limestone plateau known as Cockpit Country. It's a vast network of eroded limestone studded with thousands of conical hummocks divided by precipitous ravines – a maze that gave runaway slaves shelter from their pursuers, and a landscape rich in hiking and spelunking opportunities.
