GWH Trail Rating-
YELLOW: Moderate hike, well-signed, elevation gain of between 1,000-2,000ft., low altitude. 

Hi ladies! I'm so excited to lead this hike to the Walls of Jericho. This trail features a waterfall and is rated as moderate to difficult. 

Bring PLENTY of water, snacks/lunch, an adventurous spirit, and a camera! We will plan to eat lunch on the trail. Be sure to wear sturdy shoes/hiking boots, and bug spray. This hike will be COED and Dog friendly. 

In regards to pacing: Our GWH group have many differently paced hikers that come to our meet ups. Our meet ups are a no judgement zone and we are here to encourage as well as motivate each other along the trails. We stay together as a group.
