Mount Mizpe Yamim

Mount Mizpe Yamim

Mt. Mitzpe Hayamim, Ein Seter, Upper Amud Stream

The route begins on the Acre-Safed road (866) by the Kfar Shammai water cistern, between km 37-38 (1928-2613). The (blue) trail begins from a cattle gate and climbs in a south easterly direction along a paved road, which then becomes a path leading to the summit of Mt. Mitzpe Hayamim (ref. point 734). On a clear day when visibility is good, the summit affords you a view over the Mediterranean and the Kinneret, the Lower Galilee, Safed and Mt. Canaan. From the observation point, the trail descends eastwards down to the Seter stream and then into Ein Seter, where it meets the Amud stream. This part of the trail takes you through thick undergrowth, oaks and plane trees, all the way across the Mt. Meron nature reserve. The trail continues southwards by the Amud stream, ending at the Amiad-Kedarim road by the 40 km. mark. The trail is exposed.

Summary and Tips:

This is a challenging route over hilly terrain typical of the southern part of the Upper Galilee, covered with thick undergrowth and natural woodland. It begins by crossing the Mt. Meron nature reserve, where Mt. Mitzpe Hayamim provides a beautiful panoramic view into the distance. It then continues into the upper part of the Amud stream. Follow the route described above.
