“fantastic views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

There is a good road right to the top of the cliffs and a leaflet which gives you a range of well planned walks around the area. There are fantastic birds and flowers round the cliff and we saw Rock hyrax there too. the caves and fortress are amazing.

“A must place to visit above the sea of Galilee”

If you already reached the sea of Galilee, you must to visit this park.
From the cliffs you can see a fantastic view of the sea of Galilee.
The place is suitable for the different travelers - you can make a short trip only to see the views above the sea, and you can also make a long trip down and almost reach the sea shores.

“Fantastic Trails, Fantastic Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

The views are fantastic. Save some time to explore the fortress. The red trail coming up is pretty steep but very well constructed with steel holds that can be used to move up. However, if you have vertigo or a very small child, then you may want to think twice about going down via the black trail and coming up via the red trail. I don't know how hard coming back up via the black trail would be. Check to find out with the park ranger before going down.

The trails are worth every minute of it though. Fantastic views and fun hiking.

“Stunning views.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

The climb to the Arbel cliffs is not necessarily the easiest, but the view from the top is absolutely stunning.
You can see the sea of Galilee beneath you, with the Golan heights stretching 15 kilometers from you – an amazing contrast of bleu and yellow.
On a clear day, you can see dozens of kilometers in each direction.
Make sure you choose a clear day for the climb, as a cloudy one would limit your view to only several kilometers.
