Length: 74.8 mi • Est. Multi-day
The Golan Trail (שביל הגולן) is a hiking trail that crosses the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights. Much of the trail can also be enjoyed by bicycle or horseback. It extends from Mount Hermon in the north to the Sea of Galilee in the south. If hiked in full, it typically takes about 5-7 days, however it can also be broken up into smaller segments. There are some steep inclines and declines, however it is mostly flat. It is important to stay on trail, as the Golan Heights has many military zones and, therefore, there are active mines in the surrounding area. Minefields are well marked, with a barbed wire fence with yellow sign with a red triangle on it.Show more

This is a route from Nimrod to Snir which passes through Nimrod Fortress (נמרוד לשניר דרך מבצר נמרוד). Nimrod Fortress, at the foot of Mount Hermon, is the largest medieval fortress left in Israel. The fortress was once one of the most strategic points on the road from the Golan heights to Syria due to its height of 760 meters and steep cliffs. The beautiful views of the north are seen from every tower in the fortress.Show more
