Fodor's Review

Just outside Jerusalem, Sataf was one of many Arab villages that were abandoned in the 1948 War of Independence. You can hike here on well-marked trails amid ancient terraces shaded with pine, fig, and almond trees. Hikes last two or four hours, and pass springs where you can get your feet wet. On weekends, follow the pictures of goats to get to Shai Seltzer, who raises goats in the forest and ages unique and delicious cheese in an old Byzantine cave. You can walk

to Sataf from Ein Kerem.
