Nahal Ammud (meaning "Pillar Stream"), located in a valley below the city of Tzfat, is one of Israel's most famous nature trails. The name of the trail is due to a large stone pillar somewhere along the trail that is in the middle of the riverbed. This stunning stream pours into the Sea of Galilee and begins at the Dalton Plateau, 800 meters above sea level. The stream flows along twenty kilometers, is clearly marked and makes for a perfect family trip. As well as the stunning water there are other attractions along the way such as beautiful orchards, breath-taking mountainous scenery, a clear water pool and the huge pillar which is the namesake of the stream. Nahal Ammud is a part of the Israel Trail which spans the country from the northern border to the southern-most tip and it can be walked year-round but is especially recommended in spring when the flowers are blossoming and the pools of water overflowing.
