I would rank this hike as easy or moderate. We were a group mostly of teens and parents but the few grandparents on the trip also made the hike. Granted, we started at the parking lot, not the bottom of mountain and spent about an hour. (We met someone who had been hiking for 3 hours without seeing anyone!) The views of Galilee and landscape are wonderful. This is the most beautiful region of Israel and I am so glad we visited here.

Walk up here from Magdala, down at the main road to Tiberias for a really nice experience. Visit the caves were Jewish Zealots once hid from the Romans. Fantastic fortifications in the Rock surface. From the top you have an impressive view towards the Lake of Galilee. There's also an ancient synagogue worth visiting.

Mount Arbel is spectacular. The high cliffs offer such amazing views over all of the Sea of Galilee. The area is so serene and peaceful. If time allows spend a couple hours exploring the trails.

We enjoyed our visit to Mount Ariel National Park. The mountain too park protects caves once used by Jews who were escaping from the Romans. There is a trail to the summit, and a longer trail down the cliff face where the Jewish people. Views of the Sea of Galilee and the surrounding area are magnificent. Spring wildflowers and green grass covered the hills on our visit.

The sun escapes us at Mount Arbel where we find another ancient synagogue. It is so quiet here, and the view is like a window to the Sea. You can see why Jesus came up here to pray. Although we are at the heights, we are barely above sea level here. The Rabbi unfolds history and understanding for us as the chill weights the evening sky. Time to descend to our hotel in a kibbutz. We relish the evening dinner and the company, and call the day blessed.
