Tel Dan is an amazing archeological discovery (1979) identified with the stories of Abraham (Genesis 14) and the Northern Kingdom of Israel (1 Kings 12:25-33). The setting is beautiful and offers an opportunity for a lovely hike.

IF you decide to walk ALL the different trails, you will need a few hours but if you just do the main trail, it will take you a good 3/4 of an hour, especially if you have a guide that knows all the history dating back to the original Tribe of Dan.
