Located 110km south-west of Launceston, the Walls of Jerusalem National Park is Tasmanian’s only remote alpine National Park, only accessible via hiking trails.The following trail guide describes how to best experience the National Park’s incredible mountain scenery and pristine wilderness when limited to only two days.Two options are suggested. Firstly, the 26km to Mount Jerusalem (1459m) passing through the exceptionally beautiful pine forest of Dixons Kingdom and offering stunning summit views of thousands of alpine lakes and tarns.  Or the 21km return to Solomon’s Throne and King Davids Peak (1485m). This route requires significantly steeper climbing and rewards hikers with panoramic clifftop views of the entire National Park and beyond to the Central Plateau and Cradle Mountain.  If time and weather allow, both can be completed in a strenuous 30km return hike.
