Tourist tip #80 / The Kinneret Trail
After encountering some bureaucratic hurdles, much of this 60-kilometer walking trail is open for business, offering stunning views and unhindered access to one of Israel's most beautiful and historic sites.
Along the Kinneret Trail, just about the only thing you won’t find “as advertised” is the “rock-beating surf” Lord Byron described as he imagined the defeat of Sennacherib’s terrifying army. But you will certainly behold the “quiet blueness” extolled by another poet, the beloved Israeli writer Rachel, who is buried along its shores. All this, and much, much more.
