Opened in 1995, the Israel National Trail (INT) is a 680 mile (1,200 km) trail that crosses the entire country from North to South. The trail was blazed through a variety of natural and human landscapes, exposing hikers to Israel’s many eco-systems and amazing habitats.

In 2012, National Geographic named the INT one of the “holy grails of hikes.” Its place among the top 20 epic hikes in the world has earned the INT great notoriety in the international community.

SPNI’s Israel Trail Committee (ITC) plans trail routes, marks the trails, and maintains trail signage for about 9,000 miles (15,000 kilometers) of trails, taking responsibility for the entire length of the Israel national trail. they publish the most detailed hiking and touring maps of the country, and the unique topographical maps are of such fine resolution (1:50,000 scale) that they are an essential item carried by every hiker and off-road jeep driver
