Extending from Tel Dan in the north to Taba in the south, the Israel Trail is a hidden treasure of the Holy Land. The 1,367-kilometer track was opened in 1995, and snakes though nature reserves, national parks, farmland, hills, mountains, desert and coastlands. It is fully marked with its own standard orange, blue and white sandwich logo. The route divides quite easily into 55 sections, which we will walk in this series. Most of the trail presents few difficulties, but there are sections that are arduous and strenuous, although quite safe. Enjoy the trip! Part I: Over the river Part II: Along the Naftali Heights Part III: Over the plateau and up the gorge Part IV: Hills and valleys Part V: Over Mount Meron Part VI: Through the Swiss Tiberias forest Part VII: In search of the fair shepherdess Part VIII: Up Mount Tabor Part IX: Around Sepphoris Part X:Say farewell to the Galillee Part XI: The path less traveled Part XII: Along the Carmel Spine Part XIII: Through the Pistachio trees Part XIV: Around the aqueduct Part XV: On the railroad Part XVI: Apollonian trail Part XVII: Going upstream Part XVIII: On high
