“For the Paths”: Trails in the Holy Land


HAIFA, ISRAEL – Last Thursday, May 31, representatives from the Saxum Visitor Center and the Polis Institute of Jerusalem attended “For The Paths: A Conference on Walking Trails in Israel” at the University of Haifa. Our staff, who are working on the development of the 15km Emmaus Trail between Saxum and Emmaus Nicopolis, went to learn about other trails being developed in Israel, and to meet officials who coordinate hiking trails throughout the country. The day-long event was co-sponsored by the Israel Nature and Parks Authority, the Ministry of Tourism, and the Israeli Antiquities Authority, among other organizations. Stay tuned for more news about the Emmaus Trail, and read more about the Trail on our website here.
