Route Directions 

A stunning variation on a popular ride, this south-to-north ride will barely enter Kisalon Valley but will cut across it transversely offering great mountain scenery on both side of the valley. The ride also climbs to the top of Mount Carmilla for more great views. DIRECTIONS: Take Highway 38 to the junction of Highway 44 and park at the Sonol gas station on the left. There is a restroom that you can use as well.

Started at the Flam Winery. Did the ride in reverse - south to north. The initial climb up South Kisalon has now been paved. Added both sides of the Ein Rafa Trail singletrack for a little more challenge for the 11 who rode.
Perfect riding weather for the group of 9 on this classic route. Rode down the steep "wall" to Ein Limon
Just a positively awesome ride after a week of rain. Trails were perfect for the group of 7 as well as the hundreds of other riders seeking mud-free riding.
Added an extra 3 miles (going into Eshtaol Forest) and 2,000' of climbing on the first beautiful weather day in a week. 12 riders came out and had a great time.
Awesome ride with 7. Some slight variations: climbed via south Kisalon trail (instead of road 395), then descended to Kisalon Valley via the Givat Yearim trail. From there climbed up to the black trail.
