Snir Water Hike
The Nahal Snir Water Hike, located in the Golan Heights, is an exciting and beautiful experience for all those that are interest in nature and in hiking. The Snir Stream, also known as Hatsbani, is the longest of the Jordan River tributaries. It flows year round, making it particularly unique in Israel, through a beautiful riverside forest. The reserve has walks of different lengths, ranging from 30 minutes for families with older grandparents or younger children, to a couple of hours, for families looking for a more athletic experience. The short walks are suitable for strollers and wheelchairs, making for a particularly family-friendly activity. Along the hike, you walk through rushing water, waterfalls, wading pools, and climb over stones and tree roots. This is way more than an average hike. At certain parts of the walk, water can reach your knees, and there are even handholds to make sure that one doesn’t fall. In addition to wondrous water sites, there is also a picnic area, a bird hide, and a lookout point, but the main attractions are still the flowing river and the waterfalls.
