The cache is a plastic micro-container in a hole in the memorial rock, very close to the official path trailhead.
Please make sure to return it exactly as you found it.
And please be very wary of the many muggles passing by.
The Tel-Aviv - Jerusalem Bicycle Trail is a 120 km long path connecting Jerusalem (abbreviated in Hebrew as Y-m or Yam) to the Mediterranean Sea (in Hebrew: Yam). It was completed by the JNF (KKL) in 2010. On the Int'l Geocaching Day 2012 יום המטמונאות הבינלאומי, Aviram, Rachel, Tamar and myself "broke ground" to place the first group of caches towards Israel's most ambitious Geocaching project to date - a Geocaching powertrail along this beautiful route.
Note that you do not need to travel the entire trail to get to a cache located in the middle of the trail. Instead, use one of the several access points where the trail intersects with a road.
A high-resolution PDF map of the trail can be found here,
and a GPS track coordinate list can be found here.
For more travel information, see the Hebrew article here.
If you choose to contribute a cache to this powertrail, all I ask is that you conform to the series title format, with a correct kilometer distance value from the Jerusalem-side trailhead. Note that this distance is NOT as-the-crow-flies, but rather the real walking distance. To estimate this distance along the powertrail, simply match your GZ coordinates with the closest coordinates listed on this table. Also, since cache publication can take several days, please log a note on the nearest published powertrail cache (both the logbook and webpage) detailing how far you placed your cache(s), so to let others know not to place caches there as well.
Note: In this section of the Yam to Yam trail, it overlaps with the Jerusalem Ring trail. This point corresponds with 7.1km along the Ring trail.
