Below are some of our favourite hikes.
Clil village to Yehiam Fortress
Green and white trail
Duration: 1.5 hours (3 hour round trip)
Easy to moderate
This gorgeous hike takes you directly from our Guesthouse to the ancient fortress of Yehiam, through one of the most diverse plant and wildlife areas of the region. The green and white trail is very well marked taking you through plentiful olive groves and forests, meandering along the waddi (dry stream) through the valley, up the mountain side to the fortress. The last 20 minutes or so are a steep uphill climb but the views as you go make it worthwhile! The fortress is worth spending an hour or so exploring and costs 15 shekles to enter. You can either follow the same path back to Clil or hitch a ride back.
Clil to Yanuch
Blue and white trail
Duration: 2.5 hours (5 hour round trip)
This beautiful hike takes you from our Guesthouse to the old Druz village of Yanuch. The blue and white trail is well marked taking you through plentiful olive groves and forests, along the hills North of Clil. Yanuch is a peaceful Druz village. You can either follow the same path back to Clil or hitch a ride back.
