About Walls of Jericho Hike
This trail descends 600 feet into the Walls and continues along the creek to an amazing canyon of sheer rock bluffs, caves, and waterfalls. Consult the weather reports before the trip. Dress warmly in layers, wear sturdy boots, and bring plenty of water and lunch. As with any strenuous backcountry hiking trip, please do not attempt this hike unless you are in good condition and able to negotiate difficult trail situations.
