A nice back-and forth ride from Be'er-Sheva to Shaked park. Most of the trail goes along Hatzerim creek and Ofakim creek without many climbs and uphills. The only significant climb is at the end of the 5th kilometer, where the trail features a steep, three-staged uphill struggle. The first 5 kilometers will take you along Hatzerim creek and between many archaeological ruins of an old settlement. The next 5 kilometers will pass you through an old (inactive) military training grounds. The last 5 Kilometers is a mellow ride along Ofakim creek, between Eucalyptus trees.
This trail can also be ridden under moonlight.
