hiking guide recommendation

We're headed for P.A. next week and wondering about hiking options. We're very experienced hikers, but have heard that a guide is a necessity anyway. Anyone with recent experience? I've seen reviews of Valley Hikes and references to hikes organized out of Hotel Mockingbird Hill but they all seem to be 5+ years old.

Canmore, Canada

My post is late, trust others will benefit. Hiking in Port Antonio is organized by ATTRACTIONS LINK (attractionslink@cwjamaica.com, 876-394-2230, www.attractionslink.com) in the Rio Grande Valley and the Blue Mountains and Wayne is a great guide. It is very important to hike with someone who is knowledgeable and not just for the 'walk'.

The Blue Mountains are wonderful for hiking and coffee.

You would usually ask your lodging owners about guides.

So much in Jamaica is about regional knowledge---just like taxis vs. private drivers....knowledge of certain things.

I'd start with them for a guide--THEN move on to other sources.

There are places where hikers gather on the mountain also--where guide might be found....but you'd still need to get to that area from your base.

I believe its the travel book LONELY PLANET that has quite a bit of hiking information as well.
