Once a secret shrouded in nomenclature mystery, today The Walls of Jerusalem is an iconic National Park nestled into Tasmania's World Heritage Area. Famous for its ancient stands of Pencil Pines at Dixons Kingdom and dolerite amphitheatres, this landscape will literally take your breath away!

​The route begins at The Walls of Jerusalem carpark located in the Mersey Valley and climbs steadily up to Trappers Hut, one of the few remaining standing snarer’s huts in the Mersey High Country. After this long climb through tall Eucalyptus forest, you reach the plateau where a meandering trail takes you from tarn to tarn, Pencil Pine cluster to Pencil Pine cluster. All the while the peaks of The Walls of Jerusalem come closer and beckon your curiosity. After the Wild Dog Creek campsite a short climb passes you through Herods Gate and into the Central Walls itself. Vistas of majestic Lakes and towering mountains confront you as you make your way through Damascus Gate to Dixsons Kingdom, famous for its ancient Pencil Pine forests. Turning left at Dixsons Kingdom Hut, with its original shingle roof, you will make your way towards Mt Jerusalem where a gentle, steady climb leads you to the summit with views into the central plateau's plethora of lakes and tarns, as well as back to Solomons Throne, The Temple and Cradle Mountain in the distance. Wow! You will return via the same route.
