The Golan Trail 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 Golan Heights is mostly military zone and, therefore, there are active mines in the surrounding area.
