    KKL

Another singletrack by KKL, it can be ridden combined with neighboring trails (Alon HaGalil/Rish LaKish/Givat Ela) or just on it's own. It's well shaded, so it's pleasant also in mid-summer/
The first half is a series of climbs, then it's mostly descents. Like most of KKL singletracks, you don't find here real technical challenges, but still goon fun and flow on the fast sections.
