Points of Interest in Carmel Forest
- Muhraka (Keren Hacarmel) is a monastery located at the southeastern corner of the Carmel (opposite the town of Yokneam). There are stupendous views of the surroundings. Traditionally, this is where the Biblical prophet Elijah had his showdown with the prophets of Baal.
- Nachal Yagur is a steep forested riverbed that's good for hiking. You start at Isfiya and go down the canyon to Kibbutz Yagur at the foot of the Carmel.
- "Little Switzerland", located in the middle of the Carmel, is another well-known scenic hiking area.
- On the western fringe of the Carmel, next to road 4, a series of caves are located in the mountainside. One of them is a major archaeological site due to its habitation in prehistoric times and can be visited.
- Ein Hod, just off road 4 on the west side of the Carmel, is an artist's colony which is fun to walk around even if you don't end up buying anything.
