Jordan Trail

Overview

The Jordan Trail is a long distance hiking trail in Jordan connecting the length of Jordan from Um Qais in the north to Aqaba in the south. Offering 40 days of hiking over more than 650 kilometers of trail, and travelling through 52 villages and towns on its way. The trail traverses the diverse landscapes and vistas of the country, from the rolling wooded hills of the north, the rugged wadis and cliffs overlooking the Jordan Rift Valley, the rose rock of Petra, the dramatic sands and towering mountains in Wadi Rum, to the crystal waters of the Red Sea.

In July 2015, the Jordan Trail Association was formed to take on the responsibility of the development of the trail and its maintenance, in addition to facilitating its accessibility by establishing strong connections for all concerned and providing comprehensive information regarding the trail. As of mid 2016, the JTA received a grant from USAID, support from the Jordan Tourism Board and contributions from the private sector in addition to support by many local volunteers that aid the JTA in achieving its goals.

The Jordan Trail facilitates in the economic development of local communities through job creation, and the country’s economy to create minimum impact tourism which promotes an outdoor culture and environmental awareness.
