After Petra the route has its last major climb, reaching the highest point of the trail, before passing through the small town of Al Rajif and beginning the off-road decline to the Red Sea.
After Petra in Wadi Musa, the route has its last major climb, along the King’s Highway reaching the highest point of the trail around 1500 in altitude. Along the way there are viewpoints and several more hotels looking over the Petra. Then upon reaching the top, depart the highway onto an off-road section with more great views and cycle through the small conservative town of Al Rajif.
After passing through the town Rajif, enter the King’s Highway for a short stint until turning right after a graveyard. From this point, the trail has 150 kilometers remaining to Aqaba, mostly off road and downhill. The next portion goes quite quickly on mostly dirt tracks and roads through the countryside and then through the desert passing the town of Abbasiya.
Difficult – A mixture of long steep climbs and various track surfaces. Over 1,000m of ascent. Some uphill on rugged terrain requiring rider to push bike. The initial climb to Rajif is very physically demanding and the downhill on dirt tracks afterwards is not very technical.
