Nahal Qana begins in the hills of Mount Gerizim, reaches the Sharon plain near Jaljulia and empties into the Yarkon just west of the Yarkon interchange ( on Highway 5). It runs south of Immanuel, Karnei Shomron, Ma'ale Shomron, Alfei Menashe, Nirit, Kfar Saba, and Hod HaSharon and north of Yakir, Nofim, Etz Efraim, Sha'arei Tikva, Oranit, and Horshim.
As of 2006, the area around Nahal Qana is being considered as a nature reserve, as requested by the Israel nature and parks authority.
