UNESCO World Heritage

The Corn Puss Gap is where the Blue Mountains meet the John Crow Mountains and was an important location for the Windward Maroons who used the trail to access Bath, St. Thomas from the Rio Grande Valley. It is not yet fully re-opened due to the high rainfall and treacherous nature. The name refers to the necessity of taking animal meat (more likely a Jamaican Hutia or Coney than a Cat or ‘Puss’) preserved in brine for the long journey.
