The views of the city and Mt. Hebron were fantastic. Well worth the stop. There is a 5 minute uphill walk. Some vendors selling drinks at the parking lot.

We came to this location when we were on a pilgrimage tour to Holy Land. History tells that an angry mob attempted to throw Jesus off this cliff.

This is a brief stop, but a great one. After parking below, a 10 minute stroll, up a paved path, takes you to the lookout. There are benches to sit and enjoy, as well as trails around and down the mountain. Do be warned, though,...More

It is a popular place among local folk. But I have seen more dramatic and impressive views. To go if you have spare time

It is a bit of a walk and of course, uphill. Would be hard but doable with bad knees. The path is paved and not uneven. Will take 10 minutes to get to the top. Well worth it!

You have to see this view overlooking the Yezrel valley and Southern side if Nazareth . It has a parking area just a minute walk to the top of the hill making it accible for everyone to come and explore the scenery
