This spot shows the ruin of Abu Tobak and the beginning of the Blue Path descending to Qumran. The ruins are located west of the road while puddles and Qumran are to the east. Monks used these walking trails for periods. The ruin of Abu Tobak is the remnant of a Hasmonean period. You can see the walls and courtyards. Prof. Yossi Patrich reviewed this site.
