Region: North, Trail Duration: 3 hours, Starting Point: Meitsar, Ending Point: Nahal Meitsar, Trail Type: Walking
Source: Israel Nature and Parks Authority
Region: North

The Nahal Meitzar Nature Reserve is a riverbed filled with Mediterranean flora - oak trees and spring flowers such as anemones, buttercups, ragworts, and many more.  Have a spring picnic at the top of the waterfall and watch the meeting point of Israel's, Jordan's, and Syria's borders. Northern Israel.

How to Get There

From Tsemach Junction, take Highway 90 east and continue straight toward Hamat Gader on Highway 98. Before Hamat Gader, turn left with the road (98) and start climbing slowly up the hill, passing Kibbutz Mevo Hama and Kibbutz Kfar Haruv. About 4 km after the turning to Kibbutz Kfar Haruv, at the junction to Kibbutz Meitzar, turn right and drive 3 km. Continue east (don’t turn into the kibbutz) for a few hundred meters, and then turn right. Drive south for 5 km. The road takes you down to the left of the old fence system, to the sign for Nahal Meitzar (Wadi Mezar).

At the end of the descent, before going up again, the road crosses the riverbed. There is a parking area left of the road, where you can park the car. From the parking area, continue east on foot along the marked trail. Follow the marked trail for about 45 minutes of leisurely walking for children too, until the end of the trail. The end of the trail is marked as such and brings us to the top of the Nahal Meitzar waterfall. Go back the same way.
