We did the Jesus Trail in 4 days from Nazareth to Magdala. If you go to Nazareth I would recommend two days to see all the biblical/historical places. Our first day we arrived at Nazareth 13 : 00. We had to go to mount Precipice (go to the upper parking area, we parked at the bottom) walked a long way... More

What an experience.. Well planned stays at Jewish Kibbutz , Arab, Christian, Palastinian hotels and guest houses on our walk from Nazareth to Carpeneum was life changing. It is not always the prettiest of sights as you have to get from town to town thru some rural areas, but if u can overlook that aspect this is a trip you... More

The Jesus Trail was not what i expected. In the book it said you don't have to be an experienced hiker. I decided to take my 3 yr old daughter along. Not a wise choice. The roads out of the towns are very steep. They are on roads that do not have sidewalks. Walking out of Nazareth, you will be... More

As an experienced hiker I was expecting an easy meander from Nazareth to Capernaum. Not the case. Parts of the trail especially on the route from Nazareth to Cana are not well marked. Navigating it requires trail blazes, guidebook and GPS. Also on that section there is a lot of garbage just rotting away that the town's residents dumped there.... More

We went to Nazareth expressly to do this trail......the book of the same name says its clearly marked all the way and it is not! ...we got completely lost on the first leg of it and had to come back, in extreme heat, because soon after the start the signs stop altogether and you have no way of knowing if...

Doing the Jesus trail will show you the spirit of Galilee in a way most tourists will never see, because you walk it and are not driven around in a bus. The trail is between Nazareth and Capernaum, two places well known in the New Testament. The best time of the year to walk the trail is either in spring... More

In theory this 68 km walk from Nazareth to Capernaum should be easy and enjoyable. However, in practice it was a disappointment. On the positive side:- 1) There are beautiful woodlands with carpets of wild flowers in the spring 2) There are stunning views as you approach the Sea of Galilee 3) There are many interesting Arabic villages on the...

We wanted to do a bit of the Trail, but had read that Nazareth etc. was not pleasant and parts of the trail were pavement etc. I did a lot of research and figured out that starting at Arbel cliffs was the way to go near the sea with views. It is. However, we were so happy with our 2+... More

I hiked one day of the Jesus trail and it was not memorable. We did not get lost. The trail was pretty well labeled. However, we hiked over quite a bit of toilet paper and other trash alone the way. in addition, it was pretty lonely. We did not see any other hikers along the way. We did have nice... More

In spite of having purchased the official book and receiving the "updates" at our lodgings in Nazareth, we have to say that this was not a good experience. In several places, the distances are off, the actual directions are either missing or incorrect. We are very experienced backpackers and hikers and we got lost several times. In having chatted with... More
