Ein Evrona is an ancient well that is located on the edge of the Evrona salt marsh. In times gone by the water would rise and overflow onto the surrounding countryside. Nowadays the well is dry due to a drop in the level of the ground water. Upon arrival to Ein Evrona one sees a series of round mounds with a depression in their midst. This method of an underground water system dates back to the ancient Muslim period, is called Fogaras and is based on a two-thousand-year-old Persian method that is used until today in Iran. How to get there: Turn east off the Arava Highway onto an unpaved road. Follow the signs to Be'er Evrona.

Nahal Gishron is the southernmost canyon descending from the Eilat Mountains into the Eilat Gulf. The stream passes in a magnificent stream between colorful sandstone rocks. Along the trail visitors can enjoy a stunning view of black and white rocky landscape due to the steep granite cliffs that rise up on both sides of the deep canyon. The trail is peaceful and quiet and for those who walk it early in the morning there may even be a chance of viewing some ibexes that are quite unafraid of human presence.

Peace Road is the name of the road that runs along the border between Israel and Jordan. Along the length of the road travelers can enjoy the view of cultivated fields and stop at observation points that overlook the Arava streambed and the Edom Mountains. In 1922 the British Mandate determined the border between Israel and Jordan with the borderline being drawn in the middle of the Arava streambed. In 1994 when negotiations were being made between Jordan and Israel it became apparent that some of Israel's fields were located on the Jordanian side of the streambed. In exchange for the returned fields the Jordanians received alternate lands. How to get there: Near Moshav Idan

The name of the trail Ein Netafim prepares hikers well for what awaits them; the name translates to mean "The Spring of Small Drops" and indeed, the spring at the end of the trail is probably one of the smallest and driest you will ever see! Well, we are in one of the driest areas of Israel after all… Ein Netafim is a water spring that is located in the Eilat Mountains close to the Israeli-Egyptian border. It is the only perennial spring in the Eilat area and serves as the main drinking water source for the animals in the surrounding area. In the evening and night the animals gather around the spring in order to drink- animals include gazelles, goats, rabbits and birds. The trail is a part of the Israel National Trail which stretches for over 500 miles along the country. How to get there: From Eilat, travel west on the "Ma'aleh Eilat" Road (Number 20) in the direction of Mitzpe Ramon. Drive for about twenty minutes and you will see a sign for Ein Netafim. Turn off the road on to a dirt track to the right and you will be able to park in the parking lot. The trail starts there.
