A moderate hike that begins at the Dead Sea. Park at O Beach. This hike is about 8km in total. The hike follows the wadi floor along a stream. There is bird life, wild crabs, frogs, et cetera. The terrain becomes difficult after about 2.8kms as there is a steep incline to navigate as the trail had been washed out by rains (2013). The slope is a 45-50% grade. Once atop the wadi rim, the views are well rewarded. The return is along the northern rim which gives new views and an easier descent.
