The JNF has been investing efforts over the past decade in developing paths and infrastructure in the forests and towns bordering the forests in the Jeezrel Valley. According to JNF Chairman Efi Stenzler, the organization has been taking an active role in shaping Israeli culture.

"Through intensive development and signposting in bicycle trails in forests and open areas, the JNF is providing an answer to the demands of thousands of Israelis for safe and professional trails," said Stenzler.
