Hiked with my 3 kids from the Goren lookout to the castle. The hike was more difficult then I thought with lots of rock-steps and some narrow trails. Be prepared for a 45-60 minute hike each way depending on who you are with. It was...More

Not a must-visit place in the area but still a nice trial (there is a number of trial options). Avoid very hot weather, be prepared (water, hat etc). Almost no info in English in the site. The walk is OK for the kids but not...More

Suitable for couples and families, tracks are easy but are not circulars, if you dedicate a few hours (3-4h two way) you may reach a beautiful stream (Nahal Kziv) if you follow the red-mark track.

We hiked through this area as part of a 4-day sea-to-sea hike, from the Mediterranean Sea to the Sea of Galilee. The area was stunning... watch out for boar. They're a bit scary but they don't attack.
