I see that the 3rd edition of the guidebook shows a slight change in the route on Day 21.  The route in the 2nd edition includes the trail that goes past an old mosaic floor, Goliath's mound, Caesar's road, and an ancient press--all of which sounds interesting!  In the 3rd edition that part of the trail is marked on Map 25 as an alternate route and no longer as the main INT.  Is there a reason we shouldn't go on the part of the trail that includes those interesting sites?

Thank you.

It was a safety issue. You had to cross road 375 twice and also go along it for several hundred meters.

The old path - which is now an alternate path - is nicer.

Appreciate your quick reply to this question and to my other question about the fires.
This forum is SO helpful as I plan for the middle section of the Shvil--doing Tel Aviv to Arad--just like it was helpful four years ago when I did the northern third, Dan to Tel Aviv.  
Thanks for providing this forum!
