walked in earlier in the year before the covid started from the car park it's hard uphill going for at least an hour slow and steady as it goes. there was a couple of bits of the track that could have had a few more markers good think I was with people who knew the track well, we camped at wild dog creek nice spot. stayed only the one night we walked into Dixon's kingdom to have a look the next day. I must say I felt like we were in a very special place when I saw the walls and walking that track to Dixon's kingdom was just glorious. we walked in out same way but will go back to do more exploring and stay longer to explore next time but that first hour is such hard going but well worth it.

At the fork where the loop starts you will see a sign pointing The Walls and Lake Adelaide. The side to The Walls (Solomon Thrones and Dixon's Kingdom) is really pretty, tracks are well formed and easy to walk. The other side (to Lake Adelaide), however, is really nasty. Tracks are flooded with deep mud everywhere, overgrown plants all the way, and you have to cross numerous of streams and you can get your feet completely wet if not careful. The scenery is not as good as the other side as well. We completed the loop clockwise as others had suggested here, and took us almost 14 hours (7.30 am to 9.15 pm), because the second half slowed us down considerably. I would only do the first half and return the same way the next time. From car park to fork: Well formed, lots of accenting. From fork to Dixon's Kingdom: Well formed, very beautiful scenery. From Dixon's Kingdom to Lake Ball: Very hard to see the track, must have a GPS, scenery is beautiful though, it's like walking into a no man's land as the track is nearly non existent. Follow the pink ribbons in some part. From Lake Ball back to the fork: The nasty part, muddy, overgrown, less beautiful scenery when compared. Overall: The walls of Jerusalem is a spectacular walk, it's my favourite walk in my 3 weeks Tassie trip with a lot of different hikes, highly recommended (The first half part).

Back half is pretty rough but the walls trails are great.

although it's a 25 km walk but definitely can do within a day, started at 7:30 and finished at around 15:30. Highly recommended going clockwise direction. The track between Dixon's kingdom camping area and Adelaide lake isn't immediately obvious as overgrown bushes, we in fact wasted some time there looking for the path and views aren't as impressive as the starting bit, still a great track and I highly recommend it!

The first day is hard you are constantly hiking up hill with a pack and doesn’t seem to end would not do it again would rather the overland track any day

First to Review

Was a great hike - some of the trail is a little overgrown in places, mostly around Lake Ball, but all up was a great couple days
