Details

The trail begins alongside route 899, ascending south from Avivim junction towards Yiron and Avivim. One kilometer north of the junction is a wooden sign indicating the entrance to the Nahal Dishon nature reserve. Follow the wide dirt trail alongside the road and Nahal Dishon. Follow the red trail and when Nahal Zivon meets Nahal Dishon, bear right to reach Nahal Zivon. This is one of the loveliest portions of the Israel Trail. The shade of the large trees growing alongside the stream and the moss-covered stones make the trail pleasant and cool. The roots of the trees form stairs to help you climb up the river channel. The trail leads to a clearing and intersects with a trail marked in black. Turn left and continue following the red trail. At this point, the Meron mountain ridge, one of the highest peaks in Israel, becomes visible, rising 1,208 meters above sea level. There is a trail leading around the peak of the mountain, offering glorious views of the Upper Galilee.

 The trail ends at the Pisga camp site.
