Nesher Park is a hidden gem in the Carmel Mountains in the town of Nesher, just outside Haifa. The highlight of the park is two hanging bridges that span the Katia Stream gully just beneath Haifa University. The mountain slopes of Nesher Park are thick with lush forests of oak, terebinth, and Greek strawberry trees.
The park is crisscrossed with well-marked hike trails. Choose from a long hike or a short walk across the park’s most famous attraction - the suspension bridges. In addition to the beautiful natural countryside, the park offers picnic areas, scenic lookout points, exercise facilities, and footpaths.
The Bridges of Nesher Park
The two suspended bridges are about 70m in length. They are narrow walking bridges made with steel cables that sway as you walk across them. They are within walking distance of each other, so you can walk across one of them, and take the other bridge on your return. The stream below only flows during the winter rainy season.
If you visit at any other time of the year, you can walk along the dry river bed to the other side. Reach the bridges from Hurav Street, in Nesher. It’s about a 10minute walk from the car park to the first bridge. The bridges form part of a sign-posted walking route through Mediterranean woodlands to a recreational area. This circular hike route takes 1-1½ hours.
