Netiv HaGdud (Hebrew: נְתִיב הַגְּדוּד‎, lit. Path of the Battalion) is a moshav and Israeli settlement in the West Bank. Located in the Jordan Valley around twenty kilometres north of Jericho, it falls under the jurisdiction of Bik'at HaYarden Regional Council. In 2006 it had a population of 125.

The village was established in April 1975 by members who had been preparing in Ma'ale Efraim, and was named after the 38th Battalion of the Jewish legion, which fought in the Jordan Valley during World War I. In May 1977 it moved to its present site.

An archaeological site nearby, which has been excavated by Ofer Bar-Yosef amongst others, has produced remains from the Neolithic era, including Pre-Pottery Neolithic A.
