  • A northern atmosphere, full of water and a touch away from Jerusalem. The road of arrival is a little convoluted, strong declines, but it's all worth it when you get!!! A stream flowing full of water and abundance, and small blessings filled with fish. Natural lovers can also see crabs between the rocks. Lots of quiet corners. Have a picnic at the entrance. And a very deep and very profound blessing hoarder the spring water, allow epic to swim!!! The route is beyond the Green line, but it feels very safe, due to the presence of the reserve inspectors and the partial hedge around, however, there have been no security incidents in recent years. Packed with a free weekend and on weekends, it's a good idea to catch a parking spot early.

  • Beautiful nature reserve. Hiking trails are easy. Good for kinds and families. Bring a swimming suit and a towel because there are few pools that you can swim in. Picnic tables are available there, as well as drinking water and restrooms.
  • Great for beginner hikers and intermediate. Short and longer hikes. Beautiful nature too.
