The purpose of this website is to create a reference for English speakers who wish to hike the Israel National Trail, but who speak little or no Hebrew.

It is developed in support of the people of Israel who help maintain the INT as a resource for their nation and for visitors, and for the Israel Trails Committee and their work in building and maintaining the trail.

This website is non-profit and is run by volunteer contributions. We invite you to contribute information. Unless otherwise noted, all photos and content are the property of the webmaster. Use of photos is allowed with a link back to this website.

The Israel National Trail, (Hebrew: שביל ישראל‎, Shvil Yisra'el) is a hiking trail that crosses Israel from south to north.

Beginning at the Gulf of Aqaba in Eilat, it runs north to Dan, near the Lebanese border. The INT is approximately 1000 km (620 miles) long.

Avraham Tamir hiked the Appalachian Trail and was inspired to create a national trail in Israel. We hope this website helps continue his vision by making the trail better known among English-speaking hikers around the world.
