ESRA Hol Hamo'ed Hike in the Yarkon National Park area

ESRA Hike in the Yarkon Park area on Hol Hamoe'd Succot
The first hike of the season starts at Hurvat Mazor near Elad close to Highway 6, surrounded by moshavim and kibbutzim.
We pass the Mazor Mausoleum, a most ‎impressive and well-preserved Roman building from the 3rd century. We continue through the Yarkon National Park and Park Afek and cross the Yarkon River at one of its narrowest points.‎

As well as hiking boots please bring shoes suitable for walking in the water.‎

14km easy - suitable for all the family

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.
