Walls of Jericho and Mill Creek Loop
April 4 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm
Tuesday, April 4 – Walls of Jericho and Mill Creek Loop. 8 miles rated challenging due to rocky terrain and elevation. We’ll hike the lightly traveled trail from the Tennessee trailhead down into the Hurricane Creek Watershed, and beyond into the Walls of Jericho gorge where the canyon walls will shoot up around us before opening upon a series of impressive waterfalls and a water tunnel. Some rock scrambling will be required to view all the water features. We’ll head back via the Mill Creek loop where we’ll take a short steep spur down to Mill Creek and an impressive blowhole spring that feeds into the creek. Wildflowers should be abundant, particularly on the initial descent and along the Hurricane Creek flats. Bring lunch, plenty of water, sturdy hiking boots and poles. We will meet at 9 AM CDT at the Walls of Jericho Tennessee Trailhead near Belvidere, TN. To register or for more information contact Jim Barritt, firstname.lastname@example.org or 931-492-3212.
