The Jesus Trail

During my pilgrimage in Israel to Jerusalem I will also walk on The Jesus Trail. The trail is a 138 km hiking and pilgrimage route in the Galilee region of Israel that traces the route Jesus may have walked, connecting many sites from his life and ministry. The trail begins in Nazareth, and passes through Sepphoris, Cana (Kafr Kanna), the Horns of Hattin, Mount Arbel Cliffs, the Sea of Galilee, Capernaum, Tabgha, the Mount of Beatitudes, Tiberias, the Jordan River, Mount Tabor, and Mount Precipice.

The trail was founded in 2007 by Maoz Inon, an Israeli entrepreneur, and David Landis, an American hiking specialist.It is currently managed and promoted largely by the work of volunteers, and is a non-profit project.

The trail is free for anyone who wants to hike it and camp along the way. The Jesus Trail is marked with three stripes painted on rocks along the way (white, orange, and white). When portions of the Jesus Trail combine with other trails (such as the Israel National Trail), an additional orange circle is added to the previous trail marker, because Israel National trail is striped (white, bluee and orange).
