There are two main trails to follow, with one being part of the Israel Trail. Once at Kfar Tabor, walk south for 10 minutes along the main road until the blue, orange and white markings of the Israel Trail appear.
Follow the trail as it ascends up the mountain, leaving roughly two
hours for this section. Once at the top, enjoy the Church of the
Transfiguration which stands on the plateau of the mountain.
Picking up the black marked path around the summit will lead to some great views of the surrounding area.
Then re-join the Israel Trail along the road and then over the farmlands
owned by the settled Beduin community of Shibli. Continue on the trail
back down the mountain which leads to Mash'had, located just off Route
