Poleg Nature Reserve Hike

24/11-8:30 am

 ₪60.00 –  ₪80.00

Poleg Nature Reserve Hike

Led by Norman Kotler and Harley Zipori

Wednesday 24 November

All attendees must have a Green Pass or evidence of a negative COVID test within the prior 72 hours.

On this hike we will discover a gem on our doorstep.

We will split into two different groups catering for walkers of different levels.

The southern Netanya neighborhoods of Ramat Poleg and Ir Yamim border on two Nature Reserves administered by the Parks and Nature Reserve Authority. The Nahal Poleg (Poleg Stream) Reserve sits between the Green Beach complex next to the Poleg Beach and the Wingate Institute on the west side of Highway 2. The Sha’ar Poleg (Poleg Gate) Reserve sits between Moshav Udim and Kibbutz Yakum on the east side of Highway 2. The Israel National Trail runs through both of these Reserves.

We will start from the entrance to the Poleg Beach, next to the Green Beach complex and hike the part of the Israel Trail through the Nahal Poleg reserve. Crossing under the freeway and over the stream we will enter the Sha’ar Poleg reserve. This Reserve is known for an ancient man-made cut in the sandstone ridge through which the Poleg Stream flows from the east to the sea at Poleg Beach. We will continue to the lookout near Yakum for a lovely view of the entire area.

Two separate routes will be offered, one shorter and easier than the other. There will be plenty of stops to rest and take pictures and hear explanations.
