Great trail with ups and downs. Not for beginners, has red and black parts. Beautiful views, much shadow, not much open sun. Good shoes are necessary because of many stones on the trail. Be ready to cross the stream several times. Take water with you, there is no place to buy it.

I hated and loved this trail...we hike the Snake Path on June 2019, very early in the morning and we got to see the sun raising over the Dead Sea and the Judaean Hills. Strenuous and hot but worth every single step

Fall of 2019–Lots of wildlife!

It was a comfertable day (15 C with a nice strong breeze) to climb the Snake Trail. It was a well marked trail and yet, I found the trail difficult due to its steep slop to the top. To hike to the top and return was 39 IS which included covered parking and entrance fee to the archeological digs. We paid extra 20 US and went down by the cable car. Recommended.

I've done all of these trails. It's beautiful but not very challenging. Climbing some of these bills was fun though.

Actually there is a better trail. instead of taking the blue path back, go down using green to the old railway station and then use the lower black. It's an absolutely stunning gorge. Like something out of a European fairy tale.

a pretty easy hike to do, just be ready to walk a lot. Bring a lot of water with you and wear comfortable shoes//

One hour from jerusalem and you’re in a different world - landscape, climate...terrific winter hike if the road leading to the area isn’t flooded. Some on the edge curves but mostly gentle elevation change. Take water!

Beautiful trail in the desert, pay small fee and get in. Nice waterfalls and ponds. Add a hike to DUDIM CAVE and waterfall up by the signs.

Everything would be great if not crowd of bikers with their noise and clouds of dust, passing by you all the time. Perhaps hiking early in the morning or in the middle of the week is much better letting you just be alone with nature.

So my guess is this got the "hard" tag due to its length, as otherwise it's moderate. Roads are comfy enough for 4x4 let alone hiking. First segment is in parallel to a highway so meh. Otherwise nice and peaceful forrest setting. Even saw some antelopes! Mote that I preferred to park in Eshtaol and walk a bit more for a safer parking.

We liked this walk.
