State Lands Division Announces Opening of New Hiking Trail at Walls of Jericho Forever Wild Tract

August 19, 2009

The State Lands Division of the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources has just opened the Bear Den Point Loop at the Walls of Jericho Forever Wild Tract in Jackson County. The Bear Den Point Loop adds 4.7 miles to the existing 6-mile hiking trail system. Plans for future trails are in the works including an 11-mile overnight wilderness backpacking experience.

Characterized by mountainous terrain and breathtaking views, the Walls of Jericho Tract is a great place for adventure seekers of all levels. Located near Scottsboro, Ala., the Walls of Jericho was purchased by the Forever Wild Land Trust in February 2004 as a nature preserve, recreational area, and wildlife management area to offer opportunities such as hiking, horseback riding, primitive camping, hunting and fishing to the public.
How to Get There

The Walls of Jericho is located in Jackson County about 25 miles northwest of Scottsboro off of Highway 79.
