Walls of Jericho – Bear Hollow Mountain Wildlife Management
April 15, 2021 All day
Walls of Jericho. Bear Hollow Mountain Wildlife Management Area on the west side of Winchester. 8 miles rated strenuous due to rocky terrain and elevation. A short vehicle shuttle is necessary. This gorge straddles the Tennessee-Alabama state line and we will begin our hike from the Tennessee trailhead. We’ll pass through flats along clear Hurricane Creek and cross Turkey Creek on a foot log bridge, past Clark Cemetery, and a primitive hiker campsite. From there we will hike beside Turkey Creek alongside a bluff line to reach the beautiful natural amphitheater where the walls are progressively higher and more beautiful. The return trip will be ascending switchbacks to the trailhead in Alabama. Bring lunch, snacks, and plenty of water. Hiking poles are recommended for this hike.
