About
The Hay-Bar on the Carmel is devoted to the raising of endangered and extinct animals of the region and possible re-introduction to the wild. The park maintains breeding cells of Persian fallow deer (Dama dama mesopotamica), roe deer (capreolus capreolus), as well as various types of vultures and other raptors, which are also part of the re-introduction and re-acclimatization program.

Relaxing hike
Nov 2019
I started off at Little Switzerland car park. I took the red trail to the bridge then the blue trail up the wadi to the end. I walked back down the wadi to the bridge then took the green trail back to the car park. Nice relaxing, great views. Stopped in the wadi and had some lunch. It’s was nice to sit and listen to the bird sounds. Very enjoyable.
The only disappointing part, there was a group of school children walking down wadi, they were throwing their rubbish on the ground, I pointed this out to the adults and they did not care. It’s a shame we’re disrespectful to the environment. Collect some of the rubbish and put it in the bin.

The past . . . The future.
Oct 2019
Our 3 bus loads of Christians on a tour of the Holy Land came here to see the site where Elijah’s God destroyed the Baal worshippers. We used a beautiful garden area for a teaching of this scripture. If I remember correctly, this mountain top provided a great view of the Valley of Armageddon. Awesome. Top it off with seeing a couple of Israeli fighters flying thru the valley. Bible history & prophecy coming to life before our very eyes.

European panorma and middle east natural plants and trees
Apr 2019
Cone to this area 5 km from Haifa on winter or spring time. Otherwise it is dry and hot.
You can see many tipical plants, trees as well as eagles, boars . jackals and rabbits. The view is amazing and yet it is so close to the city.

Excellent - Elijah
Mar 2019 • Couples
Excellent place to sit and reflect on bible history.

Read the account on Elijah and the Baal prophets while sitting on top of a mount.

You can drive around the area and find different entrances to pull off in, you don’t have to start at the main gate with the masses. there are caves etc. Beautiful wild flowers in spring

Was super quiet when we went(March) didn’t see another visitor at all!!

Great place

Great park for outdoor activities.

The park has many walking routes of varying difficulty. There are also places for camping. To get to the park you have to get to the University of Haifa.

Great Views, Nice Nature, Good Walking Paths.

Carmel National Park is BIG. You can go at top of the hill by Haifa University or you can enter at the bottom of the hill too. I most often go at the top of the hill. There are several directions you can take to walk, some easier, some more challenging. All enjoyable. Go in the winter and you will see fields of wildflowers. What a treat.
