The Great River (Jamaica) is one of Jamaica's major rivers,[1] and forms the boundary of the parish of St James with Westmoreland and Hanover.[2]

Course

The Great River rises at about 1,400 feet (430 m) just north of the small village of Pisgah in the north west corner of St Elizabeth.[2] From here it flows north north east for about 57 miles (92 km) (some sources say 46 miles (74 km)[1]) reaching the Caribbean Sea at Great River Bay on the island's north coast, 4.5 miles (7.2 km) west of Montego Bay.[2]

Ecology

The Great River is home to the second largest tree in the island,[citation needed] and to crawfish.

Tourism

The Great River is one of the three most popular for traditional rafting on bamboo rafts.[1] It is also used for tube[3] and zip line[citation needed] craft.
