Banias Hike

Banias Hike

The Banias Hike is located in a special part of the Banias River known mostly to the locals. This trek takes you from Kibbutz Snear to Sha’ar Yeshuv Village. You will be hiking mostly downhill with the river to your side throughout your journey and you will begin at the source of the river and travel all the way to the Jordan River. It is a gorgeous hike with various types of beautiful trees. In the season, you may have the joy of being able to eat some of the delicious fresh grapes and dates from the wild vines.

We will cross the river over the lovely wooden bridge. Together with the stunning nature and flowers, we will spot some reminders of the old Syrian army such as an old tank tossed in the river, as well as a Syrian bunker located in a strategic point just above the settlements around the area. We will have many options to play in the water and even to walk into the stream (not for the youngsters). In the last part of the hike, we will cross a Bailey bridge designed by the British and climb a bit uphill until we reach Sha’ar Yeshuv entrance.
