Follow a short climb on city roads around the Kerak Crusader Castle, to a beautiful off-road portion. Here, the dirt trail is flat along the side of grassy canyons causing contained views with a new view around each corner.


Then around one of the corners there is a short steep hill where you will need to push your bike for around 15 minutes. At the top our support truck will be waiting for you if you join us on an accompanied trip.


After a short break to regain your energy, the trail continues uphill on rural roads past small farms with several sheep and family dogs. Upon reaching the top, the trail reaches a welcomed plateau for 10 km on a newly paved small road. Next, you reach a fun off-road section before a short steep hill where you will need to push you bike for a few minutes. Afterwards, start a long downhill, zooming along cars for 10 km and crossing the Tanour Dam, upon which you will have left Kerak Governorate and entered Tafila Governorate.
