ESRA hike in the Jerusalem hills

ESRA Hike in the Jerusalem Hills

Moderate 9-10km

The hike starts near Moshav Nes Harim in the Jerusalem Hills in an area of ‎orchards and vineyards. We will walk past the ancient buildings and caves at ‎Horvat Eitab, down to Nahal Meara with spectacular views, and down to Moshav ‎Zanoah which goes back to the 2nd Temple Period.

We will visit ruins, springs and ‎caves (bring flashlights). ‎

The area of the hike is ideally suited for those living in the Jerusalem and Modiin areas.‎

NB ESRA hikes are suitable for people in good health, who can hike on rough paths, sometimes scrambling over rocks and boulders.  We reserve the right to refuse participation on the hike to any person who does not come properly equipped or is not physically capable of making the distance.

Hikers should come properly prepared for each hike:  plenty of water (2 litres per person in normal weather, at least 3 litres per person if it’s hot), good walking boots or shoes, hat, sunscreen and food for breakfast & lunch in a backpack.  Walking poles optional, but useful.
