Begin by following the red trail for a few hundred meters until the forest area. Turn right at the trail marked with green signs. Follow this trail as it climbs up the mountain northwards. Take advantage of the beautiful views of the coastline and the lower Galilee before reaching a small river valley.
Continue up the mountain and just before reaching the road, take a sharp
left and begin following the black trail. This part of the trail allows
for even more better views.
Continue straight until signs for the blue trail are seen. Take this
route and enjoy the shade provided by the many trees which cover the way. Here
begins the decent down the mountain back towards the parking lot.
Continue down the valley, not forgetting to appreciate the beautiful
flowers that litter the way. Rejoin the red trail for a short while
which will lead back to the starting point.
Remember to wear sun screen and head covering. At least three liters of water per person is a must.
