ESRA hike Haifa Urban Trail Part 3


We will hike our third section of the Haifa Trail, following on the 2 previous popular hikes ‎discovering lesser-known areas of the city.

Part 3 will be equally interesting. We begin on the ‎Carmel area of Haifa, walking through untouched old neighbourhoods of the city, mostly along ‎wonderful nature trails, including one section with steps.

We will walk downhill along Nahal Siach, then ‎back uphill through the neighbourhood of Kababir (settled in the 1920s by the Ahmediyas Muslim ‎sect), to Gan Ha’em, and then down Wadi Lotem, finishing at Park Hecht near the coast

Easy to moderate 12-13 km.‎

Residents of Haifa area -  this is for you!!‎ 

Participation fee (not including bus): NIS 75; ESRA Members NIS 55
