Here is a classic Carmel Mountain ride starting at the base in Yokneam, climbing up past the famous Mukhraka viewpoint and northward along the Carmel Scenic Route. Rather than completing the fireroad to the northern extreme, the ride takes a shady singletrack to the town of Usfiya heading southward to complete the loop. Great views, good aerobic climbing at the outset, and some nice rocky descents to practice your riding skills. DIRECTION: Take Highway 70 north until the High-Tech turnoff to the Osem and Keter factories. Park on the street.

09/02/16 Returned via Rakefet Canyon with its awesome singletrack followed by long rocky descent. It added 3 extra miles and 400' of climbing but well worth it for the 6 who rode enjoying great breezes throughout.
