The Black Canyon trail rating : 3 3 0 out of 5 / 7 votes

The Black Canyon trail (also known as Amram's Pillars) starts off of highway 90 where there is a clearly marked turn about fifteen minutes north of Eilat. Drive for about fifteen minutes down the dirt road and you will get to a parking lot. The trail is not circular so make sure to use two cars and shuttle between the starting and ending point. Amram's Pillars are two natural rock formations at the end of the short canyon. The hike then ascends up to Mount Amir and there are some spectacular views to be enjoyed at the peak of the mountain. When descending there are two options- either a mostly flat route that goes along the Israel Trail or a more interesting trail through a canyon filled with ancient copper mines and digging shafts. At the end of either of the two routes one will see the Black Canyon- not to be missed at any price- it is filled with gray and black granite rock formations, white limestone chalk and narrow passageways that are great fun to climb and slide through. The Black Canyon trail is a fantastic trail that is suitable for all the family and can be enjoyed in all seasons
