Google Maps of Parking:

On my trip to Northern Israel, we stayed at She'ar Yashuv and went nearby to the Banias Waterfall. We parked in the parking lot and took the trail down into the gorge and then headed to the falls. We then took the bridge across the brook to the eastern view above the falls, and then turned around and took the same return bridge. We then continued along the loop, and took the Hanging Trail through the gorge, and then up and out and back to the parking area.
