Getting around Israel can be handled easily by bus, but when you want to be free of tough schedules (in the rural areas) and to be able to hike in specific walks, the best thing to do is to take a car and drive to the start of the walk.

But... I didn't know whether to classify this tip as "Warnings Or Dangers" or as "Transportation"... Israeli drivers are bad (Yes, I guess that this makes me a bad driver too). They are usually nervous and sometimes irresponsible. The problem is bigger especially during extreme weather conditions (heavy rain or a real hot day)

Hitch-hiking is not wise. But sometimes you can't do without it. If you have no alternative, try to chat a bit with the driver before getting into a car, to be sure that he sounds okay.
