I'm interested in Ein Hod as a day trip from Haifa. It looks fascinating! I tried to read all the other posts about it. It looks as if the 921 bus goes there frequently from the Hof HaCarmel station, and it isn't a long trip. However there is some talk about the 1 km walk from the bus station into the village. How intimidating is this? Walking less than a mile isn't usually a problem for me, but if it is really straight uphill that may be challenging. I wouldn't be comfortable hitching a ride. Are there any taxis?
I also noticed that there is a tour. I'll have to write and find out if this is offered on a regular schedule or if it's arranged privately. Perhaps the tour operators would assist with transport?
If anyone has been there/ has advice that would be appreciated!
