The Walls of Jericho hike is a 8-mile long with a trailhead in Alabama and one in Tennessee.

Here’s what else you need to know:

  • The hike is rated level: HARD.

  • The Tennessee trailhead is less frequented and longer than the Alabama trailhead.

  • It can be muddy and slippery after it rains, so caution and good shoes is required.

  • The trail is dog-friendly.

  • There are primitive camping sites along the trail, although hammock camping is the best option since you have to carry your gear in.

  • The hike can take about 5 hours total.

  • Most common tip from other hikers is: bring a TON of water (at least 8 water bottles per person) or a water purifier. Bringing LOTS of snacks was also a common recommendation from hikers.

  • The trail is best in the spring before it gets too hot.
