Great for the entire family

Beautiful hike for the whole family. We were aged 4 to 62 and everyone had a great time. Suggest that you like us make this a late afternoon event in order to stay away from the heat. Most of the track is however shaded.

Nice trail in Mt Merom
May 2021
A very nice trail, in the summit of Mt Merom, easy to walk with a lot of shade and beautiful views and observation points to the south, east and north of the mount, also a very comfortable picnic area next to the parking lot.

Nice shady walking trail
Aug 2019
We had a wonderful time on Shvil HaPisga (Peak Trail). The trail took us through a shady forest with beautiful views of the region. Easy hike, not strenous. We were there for about an hour and a half. There were picnic benches nearby.

Summit Trail
Jan 2019 • Family
Walked the summit trail (1.5 km) with 4 children, easy hike and nice views. There was snow along the trail so it was fun to play, but if not for the snow I would choose a more "interesting" hike in the area.

Observation Views & Hiking

It’s a little drive to get in to the trail heads. Definitely worth it. We parked and picnicked. Then we did the Peak Trail. Really fun. Great views. We added on another. Lots of people but didn’t feel crowded.

Great views and a lot of greenery
May 2018 • Friends
It was amazing to see all the green oak trees in this rare dense woodland in Israel, also the air is fresh and chill, we also look over Lebanon, Safed and the Sea of the Galilee from the top of the mountain (which i is the highest in Israel). The natural reserve is a home to many endemic plant species and rare wild animals, it's absolutely a "must" trip for nature lovers in Israel.

Hard hike but great reward
Mar 2018 • Friends
We hiked from the far side of the city of Meron. It is a very hard uphill hike, but the views from the top were worth it. We were able to see the snow capped Mt Hermon, part of Lebanon, and the whole Northern part of Israel.

Great view but get directions
Dec 2017 • Family
We didn't have a lot of time to spend here so we just wanted to drive to the top to check out the view.

Google had us drive up a road to the top. We had to drive through an open gate with Hebrew signs which we couldn't read. Anyway, at the end of the road is a small parking area, a big fence, and a soldier who let us know that we had entered a restricted military area! He let us check out the view for a minute and then wished us a good day as we left.

We drove down to another big parking area and up a dirt road which led to an abandoned military facility. It would have been fun to explore, but we just checked out the view from that location and left.

I'm sure that we would have found more to do if we had the time.

Something for everyone. Great in every season

Mt Meron summit in the upper Galilee is the highest place in Israel (except for Mt Hermon). The reserve covers a very large area of typical forest with numerous valleys crossing the hills and running either towards the Kineret area (Sea of Galilee) or towards the Mediterranean . A postcard view in every direction you look. Nature lovers will find here unique trees that are not found anywhere else in Israel, and during winter and spring-an amazing variety of flowers-perenials and short-lived. Religious people will probably head to the graves of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai- the Kabbala creator, and the famous rabbi Shammai and Hillel for a more spiritual experience. There are short trails for families with young kids and more challenging trails for the fit. Don't miss a visit to the Druze village of Beit Jann that also offers good and reasonably priced lodging. It snows here during the winter but summer is cool and green. With a good map everyone can find its way around. Take few days to explore everything the area has to offer.

Lots to see in this high mountain
Oct 2016 • Family
If you are traveling to the Galilee be sure to spend a day on the reserve. There are a few nice hikes, some easy family style, others more strenuous. End of October you can find rare flowers and wild hogs roaming year round. We slept twice at the field school hostel, I wouldn't recommend it until they do some serious renovations there.
