We start our journey at Utopia Orchid Park in Kibbutz Bahan. This is one of the few parks in the world combining orchids, carnivorous plants, birds, fish, water plants, and other exotic flowers in a tropical rainforest environment. From there we can proceed to the old crusaders' fortress at the Kakun ruins. This fortress dominated the route Caesarea-Nablus route, and was conquered by Napoleon in1799. It has now been reconstructed, and offers a good view of the entire valley. A picnic area and tables are available. Entrance is from the road connecting Gan Yoshia to Amatz.
