Ein Tzur spring
The hiking trail to Ein Tzur is one of the popular trails in Ramat Hanadiv. The path is suitable for families and passes through open forest landscapes with views to the east on its way to the Nikva spring with an aqueduct, pools and an ancient bathhouse.
Ein Tzur is a beautiful spring that flows all year round, and next to it is an ancient villa and bathhouse. The spring, within Ramat Hanadiv, is accessible by a short walk and is a pleasant spot for a visit and a picnic. An impressive bathhouse where we can identify the three rooms that characterize a Roman bathhouse: the cold room, the lukewarm room and the hot room. The transition between the chambers was designed to accustom the body to the heat of the steam.
The Maish cave
The Maish Cave is an impressive karst cave located on the eastern slope of Eden Hill and overlooks Wadi Milk. The length of the cave is about 40 meters and at the end is a large and ancient Maish tree coming out of the cave’s entrance.
Along the route, you could spot a typical Mediterranean grove. Abundant with beautiful climbers, olive trees, oak and more. The benches on the path offer a great view, where you can also drink coffee, relax and enjoy the surrounding beauty. You can visit inside the cave – it is recommended to come with flashlights.
Carmel Mountain is networked with hiking trails, parking lots and lookout points. Routes for car trips, paths for hiking, parking lots equipped for rest and picnics, and stunning landscape views. Carmel Park is the largest national park in the northern region. The park covers an area of about 84000 dunams and is dedicated to preserving nature and the landscape.
