Israel Trail 8th Segment: Lower Nahal Amud
Sunday, November 13th: Join us on the 8th part of epic journey along the Israel Trail, with this beautiful hike through Lower Nahal Amud to Ein Nun!
We’ll begin the day at the entrance to the lower part of beautiful Amud Stream, where we’ll walk for a bit then stop for a cup of hot coffee. The easy walking trail will take us through a mix of sun and shade, past incredible rock formations (including the giant rock pillar which gives the stream its name). We’ll also see the National Pipeline which pumps water all over the country. After we leave Amud Stream, we’ll walk through farmland towards Ein Nun, a refreshing spring pool. Then, we’ll continue past agricultural terrain towards the entrance to the famous cliffs of Arbel where we will end the day with a glass of wine and some snacks to celebrate our completion of the 8th part of our journey!
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!
10% discount available if you pay for 4 Israel Trail hikes at once!
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.
