The Jerusalem Trail, (Hebrew: שביל ירושלים‎, Shvil Yerushalaim) is a hiking path that extends the Israel National Trail into Jerusalem.

Overview[edit]

The trail, opened to the public in 2006, is almost a complete circuit. It 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.

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