Description

Walls of Jericho Trail is often very busy, so if you’re looking for solitude and some rocky ledge scenery then Bear Den Point Loop should work for you.

The trail circles around a rock table accented by moss ferns and water in early spring. Several sections of this trail are neither blazed nor well-marked so you’ll be guessing where the trail goes before picking up the next red marker. There are also a lot of felled trees and briars along the trail, so be prepared to bust through or box around.

Scenic beauty: 3 out of 5
Trail maintenance: 2 out of 5

Flora & Fauna

A spring is keeping water despite the dry fall weather.

Vista and the fall colors make this trail a great alternative to the crowds at the Walls.

There are plenty of downed trees at Bears Den Loop. None were too hard to navigate in the Fall. The trail has plenty of markings.
