The Jerusalem Trail, (Hebrew: שביל ירושלים‎‎, Shvil Yerushalaim) is a hiking path that extends the Israel National Trail into Jerusalem. The trail is almost a complete circuit, and can be extended to a full loop by following Israel National Trail marks. The length is approximately 42 km (26mi).[1]

The trail is marked with a gold line between two blue lines and takes an average of two days to complete. It was opened to the public in 2006.

The trail combines cultural and historical places with national parks around Jerusalem. It goes to many museums, the Knesset, the City of David, Mahane Yehuda Market, Sataf, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and numerous other sites.[2][3]
