Entry is a steep loose rain drain, cross a white dirt road into the trail that runs in a dry stream bed. There are various types of elements along the first part of the trail such as a short wall ride and some small drops. Later on there is a drop of about 1 meter on the left, There is enough room to take it and continue to a sharp right to a rock garden. There is an alternative to the drop on the right where you can ride down along the rock. Further on the trail is comprised of single tracks with the occasional rock garden and drops or rock slops that end in the cow farm, this ends the more technical part of the trail. from here there is a short section of white double road and you can ride in the wadi or continue on to the a later entry to the wadi. There is a small pool that lately is mostly dry although during the winter and after heavy rains some water might run in the stream. In the middle of the wadi trail there is a section of flat rocks that is a must!. the rest can be done on either side of the stream to the car park by the lake. Note! i have been stopped by a ranger that was more than willing to give me a fine for riding on pedestrians route. The trail can also be ridden by night and is recommended in full moon. It can be cold at night even in the end of summer, winter is very cold in the stream bed.

Access Info

entry from the car park near Beit Oren circle, ride the dirt road north towards Osfia and after 15 meters dive to the right.
