The hike is great, but if you want to spot ibex, follow the signs at the end of the parking lot that point towards the ancient synagogue. (Drive, or walk ~ 1 km) Synagogue has a great mosaic floor (peacocks) and an interesting back story: the community was wealthy enough to build such a beautiful building because they had a secret method of producing balsam perfume - a floor inscription admonishes worshipers not to reveal the secret to competitors)
Ibex - there is a large date palm grove adjacent to the synagogue where large numbers of ibex hang out.
