Alabama: Walls of Jericho, 8.1 miles, out-and-back, difficult due to a long, repeat long, uphill on the way back. This trail takes us to a unique and fascinating set of waterfalls in the midst of “walls,” multiple cliffs barricading the creek and separated by long stretches of flat rock speckled with drops of hardened lava. The big waterfall coming off the top plunges into a deep hole and disappears from sight, only to squirt out of another cliff not far below. Nothing seems to have tumbled down recently. Due to a creek crossing just below the falls, BRING WATER SHOES. Check the weather forecast and wear appropriate layers; wear hiking shoes or boots; bring snacks and/or lunch along with more water than you think you need; and gather up hiking poles, rain jacket, sunscreen, flashlight/headlamp, and insect repellent as needed. For carpooling/ caravanning, meet at the parking lot just after LaQuinta Inn, north off I-24 Exit 175 at 8:30 am ET. https://bit.ly/3QITAD4 Please register with hike leader Betsy Darken, (423) 718-2060.
