Although many people like to curl up with a warm blanket and a good book on cold winter days, this is actually a great time of the year to go hiking on an exciting nature trail. We’ve had a decent amount of rain this year, and the streams flowing through Israel’s nature reserves are gushing with water.

One of the best winter hikes is Nahal Hashofet, which is located in the Ramot Menashe area. Some of the hikes near the stream are short – perfect for families looking to get out for a half-day walk. One of my favorites is the circular path that passes by open fields, running water and hidden caves.
