A kilometer-long trail specially adapted for disabled use leads from the Saadim Recreation Area to the Activities Recreation Area (site no. 7 on the map), before returning to its starting point. We go back to our vehicle and follow the dirt road around Mount Shalmon (it is indicated with black markings) until we reach Havat HaGitot (“Wine Press Farm”). At first, the trail leads us to a junction (site no. 5 on the map), where a signboard displays a map of the forest. At the junction, we continue straight on, then immediately turn right on to a stretch of trail beneath a high-tension electricity pole (green markings). The track takes us round the ridge to the west and north, ascending to the highest point of Soreq Ridge (altitude point 714), where KKL-JNF has established a small, cozy recreation area (site no. 6 on the map). Here we can park the car and continue upwards on foot, following a path bordered with curbstones that leads to the top of the hill.
Along the way, this footpath passes three ancient wine presses that were used to extract juice from grapes that was later fermented to produce wine. The third (upper) wine press is especially impressive, as it is large, with a treading floor 5.7 x 4.7 meters in size. After treading, the grapes underwent additional compression by means of a beam, one end of which was fixed in a rectangular depression hewn into the western edge of the floor. The remains of an olive press can also be seen just nearby. The wine presses and other agricultural equipment at the site would appear to have belonged to a local farm and to have been in operation at some time between the Ancient Israelite Period and the Byzantine era. The footpath continues to the top of the hill. Here, beside a cairn (i.e., a man-made heap of stones) we are rewarded with an impressive view of the landscape in all directions. All around us are the remains of buildings that once belonged to the farms established here in the various different periods. The footpath takes us back down to the Wine Press Recreational Area where our car is waiting.
