Hard track
Starting near Lake Rowallan, from the car park at the end of Fish River Road, Walls of Jerusalem National Park, this walk leads to the summit of Mount Jerusalem via the Mount Jerusalem Track. Most walkers take 3-4 days to explore the Walls of Jerusalem, using Wild Dog Creek campsite as a base. This site has tent platforms, toilets and running water. To reach the campsite, which is on the alpine plateau, requires some initial effort. From Wild Dog Creek, walking tracks lead through Herods Gate into the interior Walls, passing Lake Salome and the Pool of Bethesda before reaching the imposing Damascus Gate. Optional side tracks lead to Solomon’s Throne and The Temple. Continue your walk through the pencil pine forest to reach Dixons Kingdom. After passing a small alpine lake, the final ascent to Mount Jerusalem zigzags up the rocky slope. Much of the walking track consists of the raised boardwalk, from Wild Dog Creek through to Dixons Kingdom, to protect the fragile alpine vegetation. Walkers are requested to stay on the formed walking tracks at all times, both for their safety and to protect the sensitive alpine region. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
