Overview

One of the best trails around. Has amazing limestone cliff faces and waterfalls.

Description

Opposite of most trails, you initially descend into the valley and climb out on the return.

This is the only trail around so it would be hard to get lost. There are some Horse trails that cross it but they are easily distinguishable. You'll cross two creeks, Hurricane and Turkey respectively, via log bridges, before following Turkey Creek to the Walls of Jericho.

The walls are high cliff limestone cliff faces from the creek bed and narrow to a natural amphitheater. Depending on the rainfall there are multiple waterfalls and good places of some swimming there as well.

My son and I hiked this trail for the first time to celebrate his 13th birthday. It is a beautiful trail. Perfect for his first “real hike”.
