Daniel had been working as essentially a slave for Amalek. (His grandmother had sold him.) He eventually escapes, and when he does, he flees to the mountains. He is living there first, then, because it isn't the town of Galilee. A related reason is that the Romans are in the town; they don't really occupy the hill country (though they pass through it). Eventually, he lives there because that's where Rosh and his group live, and he's living with them to fight the Romans. That's where the rebels can find places to hide.
