The Sea to Sea Trail (Hebrew: שביל מים לים, Shvil MiYam LeYam) is a hiking path that crosses the north of Israel. Its western end is in the Mediterranean Sea at Achziv, near the Lebanese border in the far north of the country, and it extends to the Sea of Gallilee, a length of approximately 89 km (55.3 mi). The trail is marked with different colors in different sections, and takes an average of 3–4 days to complete.
The first part of the trail climbs from the Sea of Gallilee through Nahal Amud to the grave of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai grave on Mount Meron. This section of the trail is part of the Israel National Trail. The second section of the trail goes from Mount Meron through Nahal Kziv to Ma'alot-Tarshiha. The third day of the hike follows Nahal Kziv to the sea.
