Walls of Jericho Hiking Trail, Alabama

A few weeks ago Kevin and I took Miley and Howie for a hike at the Walls of Jericho trail near our house. They absolutely love to go hiking and run around on the trails! It’s so fun to watch how much they enjoy it. And we love it too.

Ever year for our anniversary we try and go someplace new to explore. Sometimes we take long weekend trips staying in rustic cabins and spending a few days in the woods, and we’ve been to some gorgeous places in Tennessee, Georgia, and the Carolinas in the 10 years we’ve been celebrating.

But this year (with such a crazy June coming up! :)) we opted for low key and decided to give the nearby Walls of Jericho trail a try, which ended up being just 20 minutes from our house.

We’ve been hearing about this beautiful trail ever since we moved here and finally decided to see what it was all about. :)

It was the perfect length — 3 miles in and 3 miles out — with a beautiful little pond and dry river bed to explore in between.

Miley and Howie even got recognized, lol! We, on the other hand, did not. Hah. Famous little stinkers! :)

Have a great Tuesday friends! :)

    I am wanting to visit this beautiful place! I’m from south of Birmingham. I have a question…Is the hike down to the cemetery very steep or difficult? We want to set up camp and are concerned about carrying gear in. Would it be possible to pull a wagon with gear in it to one of the camping areas? What is the hike like the first half?

    We went hiking here this past Saturday. Did you know if you follow the trail to the area behind the waterfall at the swimming hole that you can climb over those rocks and there is another area back there? There is a deep hole (that probably fills up with water when it rains), 2 neat areas where water has carved out the rocks and a cave that has a spring running through it. We loved our 7 hour hike at the Walls of Jericho too!

    I just love those cute little Bostons of yours. I have one too and just love their little smushed in faces. Have a nice holiday.

    Hi Amanda,
    I am curious how long this hike took. I’ve heard the Walls of Jericho hike can take up to 6 hours and is very strenuous, but maybe you just went on a shorter part of it? Or maybe you are just in awesome shape so that wouldn’t bother you ;)

    I am so jealous of your hiking adventures. I have read your blog for awhile and I love reading about your trips. I am going through my own weight loss journey. I won’t even post what I weigh but know it was substantially more than you. I live in Georgia and would love some suggestions for trails around the southeast that are great for beginners (and overweight ladies).

    What a beautiful hike! Isn’t it funny how some of the most beautiful things are so close to home? As always, I loved your photos. Happy Anniversary to you and Kevin! :0)

    What a beautiful spot. I can’t believe the dogs just headed over the bridge like that! It would have taken some persuading to get me over…!

    What a great get-away! As always I’m thoroughly enjoying your gorgeous scenic photos!

    Hope your 4th of July is An Extraordinary Day!

    Sometimes the most unexpected surprises can be virtually at our back door! Glad you had a chance to explore.
