Fodor's Expert Review Sataf

Latrun Farm/Ranch Fodor's Choice

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. There's a small coffee shop on site serving Israeli breakfasts, salads, and sandwiches along with ice cream and drinks. 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 in about an hour.
