Background: Adjacent to Moshav Kanaf is an enchanting spring with three pools of various levels. The spring flows throughout the year, and the site is wheelchair-accessible. There’s a parking lot close to the pools, and there’s a picnic table that is wheelchair-accessible, too.
The members of Moshav Kanaf built the pool for hikers and tourists. For many years, the spring supplied the drinking water to the moshav. In 2007, the area around the spring was upgraded and beautified, as part of a project in memory of Ashi Novik z”l, from Kanaf, who fell in the Second War in Lebanon. In 2016, the Golan Regional Council made a further upgrade, and made the site wheelchair-accessible.
Description: The pools are located under the big eucalyptus tree that is below the parking lot. You can descend to the site from your car, and enjoy cold water, a beautiful view, and a perfect picnic site. A grove of trees has been planted, there are cactus bushes with plentiful fruit, and there are areas for sitting and relaxing.
Arrival: From Road 92 (the road that hugs Lake Kinneret to the east), drive to the Maale Gamla Junction (where Roads 92 and 869 meet), and drive up Road 869 towards the east. After 9 kilometers, turn right towards Moshav Kanaf. Approximately 100 meters before the yellow gate of the village, turn left on a dirt road, and continue for about 2 kilometers until you reach the parking lot above the spring. Entrance is free.
*Note: Above the parking lot is the ancient synagogue of Dir Aziz. You can visit the site before or after you visit the spring.
