First we walked among this roaring headwaters of the Jordan River with a small wading pool. Walking further we discovered the ancient gate and then Abrams arch, the oldest full arch (3700 years) in the world. This place is just amazing.

One of the head streams of the Jordan can be found here. Dan was the northern part of the Kingdom of Israel--you can see the ancient altar excavated and walk among the excavated ruins as part of the Reserve. Lovely spot to experience--and so lush!
