The selected paths are “the holy grails of trails across the world” and the Israel Trail “delves into the grand scale of biblical landscapes as well as the everyday lives of modern Israelis," said the list’s author, Doug Schnitzspahn, according to the Jerusalem Post.

The Society for the Protection of Nature established the Israel National Trail in 1995. The trail is more than 1,000 kilometers long, stemming from Kibbutz Dan in the north to the SPNI’s Eilat Field School in the south. Schnitzspahn said it is best to walk the trail between February and May.
