  The Pillar
by Bregman

If you like hiking, there are plenty of trails in the Kinneret area. A nice and not too difficult hike is Nachal Amud. There are two section of the wadi you can hike in, the upper one near Kfar Shamay a little after Zefat. The lower one, shown here, is the end of the wadi, where it flows into the Kinneret. Not too far from Kibbutz Hukkuk. This is also where the pillar, the wadi is named after, is found.

The two sections are completely different, the upper one has water throughout the year and flows in a thick natural forest, the lower one is much wider and has less water, there are much less trees here and the landscape is more rocky. Here you will find narrow canyons and caves (some of which had pre-historic men living in them).
