Haifa is one of the most polluted cities in Israel. Thus, most days you will not be able to see too far. Acre, which is about 10 km by air will look foggy. The reason for the pollution is the industrial zone.

As you can see, the glasses were not clean, thus the photos turned out blurry.

And here is a view of nearby trails. Several years ago we hiked there and you can find out more at Hiking the Carmel Mountains.

Summary

Haifa University Viewpoint has its pros and cons. One one hand it is free (unlike Azrieli Observatory). On the other, the windows are not that clear, and most people will not spend there more than fifteen minutes.

Moreover, besides the nearby attractions mentioned in this post, consider visiting the Hecht Museum, which is situated less the five-minute walk from the viewpoint.
