Cranbrook Flower Farm is a unique eco-tourism attraction located on Jamaica’s north coast at Laughlands in the parish of St.Ann, and is situated between the two main tourist and cruise ship towns of Ocho Rios and Montego Bay. The attraction is sited on 130 acres, including 40 acres of landscaped grounds, and was opened to the public in May 1997.
This multifaceted property boasts exotic tropical gardens, lawns, water pools, and a mini museum and heritage tour, all set against the backdrop of a tropical rain forest. A hiking trail along the Little River leads to the river head waterfalls, where the water gushes out of the side of the mountain. This award winning attraction is highly acclaimed both locally and overseas, and is regarded as an essential component of the itinerary of visitors to the island.

River Head Adventure Trail
The river head adventure trail begins on the lawns of the entrance garden and takes a path through the beautiful gardens and walkways. Making its way along the bank of the Little River, the trail passes under a canopy of bamboo trees and gently makes its way into an unspoilt, natural tropical rainforest.

The sound of water cascading over rocks and between trees reaching for the sky hearalds the approach to the cathedral-like gorge where the river rises from a pristine pool at the foot of the rocks. This is the river head….Natural and unspoilt.
