The Meshushim Reserve is a part of the Yehudiya Forest Nature Reserve in the central Golan heights. With deep canyons, stunning hexagonal ("meshushim" is Hebrew for "Hexagons") basalt formations, flowing water and cascades, the trail is truly spectacular. In spring there is an abundance of herbaceous flora along the trail and visitors will often spot wild boar roaming around. The pool I named after the shape of the basalt pillars that make up its walls which were created by the cooling of layers of lava floes over a long period of time.
It takes twenty minutes to reach the pool and thirty minutes to get back up to the parking lot. There is an additional trail leading to the Zavitan stream that ends at the Yehudiya parking lot that must not be started after 11:00 AM due to the length of the trail. The trail is suitable at all times of year although it may be less comfortable to do the trail in the summer time. Make sure to take in the rare observation points of the Golan with a view to the east.
