Israel Trail #22: Crocodile & Hadera Streams


Sunday, May 5th: Join Hiking the Holyland and expert guide Ben Zaltzman for the 22nd section of the Israel Trail, along Alexander Stream, past Caesarea, to Hadera Stream!

This relatively flat, 15 kilometer segment begins at Beit Hananya with a cup of hot coffee.  Then, we’ll walk towards an ancient tel, making our way along Crocodile Stream, all the way to the coast.  From here, we’ll take a walk on the beach (shoes optional!) until we reach ancient Caesarea, the famous port city fortified by Herod the Great.  After a lunch stop, we’ll continue along the sand dunes until we get to the Hadera Power Plant.  The last part of the day will take us along the beautiful Hadera Stream.  Our journey will end at the Hadera Park, where we’ll celebrate the completion of the 22nd segment of the Israel Trail with wine and snacks!

Minibus transportation available from Savidor Station (price determined based on # of participants, 110-140 NIS).  This is a challenging hike for fit hikers only.  This is a popular hike, so please reserve your spot early! 

Prices do not include VAT.

    My name is Ben Zaltzman, I’m a tour guide and a hiker in Israel who leads people on trails around the country. 
    I fell in love with nature at a young age.
    While exploring the wide open spaces of nature, I came to know that it was the place where I belong.
    A question I ask during our journeys is, “What happens to me in nature?”
    I found secret hiking trails, discovered magical corners in the country, and have been guiding others through my experiences.
    The trips I lead are about nature connection, the power of being in nature, and the changing environment.
    I’m an expert at long-distance hikes. I hiked for 6 month along the Pacific Crest Trail in the US, and have gone on lots of other journeys in Israel and abroad.
    Tour guiding course of the ministry of tourism, birdwatching course (Israeli SPN), educational tours (ministry of education), Storytelling, hunter-gatherers life skills, group dynamics leader, tour educator (on Birthright), Nature cure & connection journey.
