From Nazareth to Cana

Hard to read maps:

The most direct route would take Jesus, his mother, and the disciples 14 km to Cana. Using the SWP data, we see a 2.5 km trail descend to the northeast from Nazareth to Reina (see Map 4C), whose ancient name is not known. (A Sepphoris aqueduct starts in Reina.) From Reina, at 300 m above sea level, they could continue northeast about 1.5 km to a point near Gath Hepher, skirting to the east of Sepphoris.
