Nice place for a walk even with small children. The best way to get there is to rent a car and in one day you can visit two places: Red Canyon and Timna Park. Take water plus food.

interesting place for a short walk on the green route, short and concise. You can see what is most interesting - rocks and canyon

Best experience so far. Amazing desert views, easy track. Enjoyed it very much. Will highly recommend. Only one thing- the other travellers leave empty bottles after water, tissues and food leftovers.
