Today was a very fulfilling day as the databook was completed and placed online for download. This milestone in the summer couldn’t have come any sooner as we’ve been getting an increasing amount of international press. The article written by AP journalist Laurie Copans has reached the corners of the world via CNN.com, ABC News, Yahoo, and many local papers.
The databook is a result of Matt and I (Nate) hiking and re-hiking the main stretch of the trail that begins in Nazareth and ends in Capernaum. It’s approximately 60 kilometers and we broke it up into eight different sections to be used as accessible day hikes and trips. You can get to the beginning and end of each section by car and/or bus, customizing your Jesus Trail experience however you see fit.
Open and print the PDF and you’ll find turn-by-turn directions and distances, as well as the elevation of each turn to guide you if you like to hike with an altimeter. There are maps of the path, the turns, and points of interest. Bus information, accommodations, and facilities are also included.
Our hope is that the databook will allow the independent traveler and hiker to print and go, with a good pair of boots and plenty of water of course! It’s getting quite hot over here and we hope to see you soon!
