Rides in areas inhabited over 6,000 years old don't occur every day. The Sataf Forest offers just that opportunity. This is an easy but scenic ride offering 360 degree views of the Judean Hills including Jerusalem along with the smell of pine trees galore. The area is a popular route for after-work joggers and cyclists. At the conclusion, you have an option to sit by the coffee shop and take in the view or take a dip into the cool and refreshing Sataf Springs. DIRECTIONS: From Highway 1, exit at the Harel Interchange and drive along road 3965 following the signs to Sataf. Alternatively, take Highway 395 from Ein Karem to the Sataf traffic circle.
