Tales are easy to read. Even writing a Tale is somewhat easy. Yet, some Tales are not so easy to create. This is true for the Jesus Trail. This 72 km, 5 day, 4 night hiking trail which traverses the lands of our Saviour Jesus from his home town of Nazareth to Capernaum (Matthew 4:13-16) alongside the Sea of Galilee has probably been one of our toughest trails to Trailblaze to date.
This Tale describes (to the best of our ability) the Jesus Trail – the highs and lows, the blood, sweat and some tears.
