Pinsteps. Avnat Einot Tzukim hiking trail, Dead Sea

The ascending trail is considered the first hiking trail recorded in Israel back in 1947. It's hard to believe, but once the Dead Sea level was quite high, and the water came close to the cliffs (no one could dream of a coastal road). The trail was marked to make it easier for travelers to find a cliff bypass and return to shore. However, the outbreak of the War of Independence interrupted the labeling operation.

Hiking and beaching on the Dead Sea

The hiking trail from Kibbutz Avnat to the Einot Tsukim Nature Reserve is gorgeous in spring. Many herbs bloom in ravines along the path, and the entire desert is covered with an unusual green carpet. Kalia beach is well equipped and pleasant all the time of the year. After a hiking trail, natural mud on the seashore will be pretty relaxing.
