This trail is located in Wadi Ain Zubia (Zubiya or Zoubia) in the Northern Jordanian Highlands. This area offers great hiking opportunities.
The trail takes you through Roman ruins, dense forests and the small village of Zubia with views of the valley below. Other than in the wadi, you walk on established paths.
The hike is a healthy walk around the oak-dotted limestone hills of Pella near the archaeological site of Tabaqat Fahl, the name of the nearby village.
With sweeping views of the Jordan Valley, there are Byzantine and Roman ruins as well as evidence of Bronze and Iron Age settlements spread throughout the area.
This trail is near the Ajloun Castle (Qal'at Ajloun or Qal'at Ar-Rabad) in Jordan and leads through an area that contains remnants of Mediterranean vegetation that was once widespread in this part of Jordan.
Apart from the ubiquitous olive groves, you will find on the trail mostly Evergreen Oak (Quercus calliprinos), a few Carob (Ceratonia siliqua) and wild Pistachio (Pistacia palaestina).
Explore this very nice walk around the Ajloun Castle (Qal'at Ajloun or Qal'at Ar-Rabad) in Jordan. The castle in Ajloun (Ajlun) is located near the city center and can be easily reached by car.
Although partly in ruins nowadays due to earthquakes, the castle used to have four towers when it was erected by one of Saladin's generals in 1184 AD.
