Jaco Flats/Steps

Length: 1 mile
Duration: 45 minutes
This is the site of a Maroon encampment of escaped slaves in the 1700s. The name was coined after a runaway slave, Jaco, who found refuge there. Access is uphill to a plateau after crossing the Belles River. The highlight of this walk is the flight of 135 steps up a steep incline manually constructed by the slaves who lived there.
