Just a short drive away from the Shkedi Camplodge, you will find recommended hiking trails, including:
Wadi Tamar, Wadi Tsafit, the lower Wadi Peres riverbed, Wadi Pratsim, Mount Sodom and much more. In the moshav itself, and in its surrounding area, you will find additional hiking options and places of recreation:

Recommended Hiking Trails

1. “Mushroom” Trail: a walking distance from the Camplodge. A short hike on the white marlstone hills, overlooking a breathtaking view. The trail leads to a beautiful sand slide located underneath a mushroom-shaped sand rock. This location is perfect for children – “Nature’s Amusement Park”.
2. The “Capparis” (Tsalaf) Trail: a short drive by car towards the intersection. Parking is alongside the road and the hiking is along a marked trail with tiny iron arrows. A beautiful scenic route that is short and convenient, and which includes a passageway through a natural arch, overlooking Wadi Zin.
In proximity to the Capparis’s Trail is the Laura  – a cluster of monk caves, dating back to the Byzantine Empire.
3. Ein Plutit Spring (originally known as the hidden spring): arrival by car or a short bicycle ride along the service road to the moshavim. Parking is by a collection of palm trees along the road (the area is marked with signs). A natural fountain is concealed in the cluster of the palm trees, filling up a small waddling pool – a perfect location for dipping and relaxing.
