Three unnamed waterfalls are ensconced in a gorge known as the Walls of Jericho. Leave the Cumberland Plateau–top trailhead, dropping into Hurricane Creek canyon. Ramble into Alabama before reaching the Walls of Jericho and Turkey Creek. Reenter Tennessee at the Turkey Creek canyon. Pass a wide, low falls and deep swimming hole, then reach another falls that gushes out of a wall. A rock scramble farther up the gorge reveals yet another waterfall that spills into a stone shaft before disappearing. Loop your way back to the trailhead.
