From the castle, the trail skirts round the side of the hill on quiet mountain roads overlooking orchards in the valley below. The route continues along the edge of the town of Anjara and past the old abandoned village of Sarabees before descending to Wadi Mahmoud.
Upon reaching the wadi, the trail continues through a wooded valley before heading west and starting the long descent into Wadi Zarqa and the Zarqa River. From the top of this mountain and along the descent, there are breathtaking panoramic views. This 985m descent is the longest on the trail, and the route takes a mixture of quiet roads and dirt tracks all the way to the river. In biblical times, the river was known as the Jabbok River, where Jacob wrestled with God. The beautiful long descent caps off one of the best sections of the Jordan Bike Trail with over 2000 meters in descent for the day.
