With springs and ruins, Ein Pik is a great hiking destination in the Golan Heights.
Fresh springs fill ancient pools in Ein Pik. There is also a family-friendly 1.5 mile circular hike but note that parts have no shade at all so it’s probably best to wait until the later hours of the day. Despite being close to the road, the hike itself gives the impression of total isolation thanks to the lack of people who frequent this spot and the seemingly misplaced desert fauna along the trail. Head towards Pik Ruins – which until 1967 was a Syrian village – and begin your descent towards the refreshing spring below. You’ll traverse lush jungle-esque flora replete with lovely almond, olive and pomegranate trees. If you’re feeling peckish, feel free to help yourself to some juicy figs that surround you.

Turn right at Afek Junction onto Route 98. Continue for about 1km and turn west when you see the brown signage pointing the way to the Pik Ruins. Park your car on the side of the road.
