ESRA Hol Hamo'ed Hike in the Ramot Menashe area
ESRA Hike in the Ramot Menashe area on Hol Hamoe'd Pesach
We start the hike between the two Kibbutzim Dalia and Gal’ed, walking above and along Nahal Taninim (the crocodile stream) which flows south-west to the Mediterranean.
Kibbutz Dalia was formed in 1933 by Hashomer Hatza’ir during the last wave of tower and stockade movement with members coming from Roumania and Transylvania. The whole area suffered from continuous drought, but in 1950 water was found. This changed the whole character of the kibbutz and countryside, which is now lush and green.
We will walk through these beautiful green fields and hopefully see lots of flowers. The last half is through the forest to finish at Kibbutz Shaar Ha’amakim.
Easy 10 km. - Ideal family hike for Hol Hamoed Pesach

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, change of clothes/towel if swimming, hat, sunscreen and food for breakfast & lunch in a backpack. Walking poles optional, but useful.
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.
