Whether you have one and a half hours or a whole day, the fastest way to encircle Ramat Hanadiv is by the blue-marked cycle tail that crosses the park’s three walking trails. In this particularly enjoyable ride, which includes slightly steep descents, a flat section and slightly challenging ascents, we’ll pass by the vulture cage, Horvat Aqav and Beit Huri, indulge in the panoramic view of Mt. Carmel, the sea and Hanadiv Valley, and relish the tranquillity and the green surroundings.
Where is the first marking?
The trail begins at the picnic area. We’ll pass the main entrance gate to Ramat Hanadiv and turn right at the security guard’s booth. The picnic area is to our right and to our left is the second entrance gate to the Memorial Gardens. After parking we’ll hop on our bikes and search for a white barrier gate with a picture of a badger, near the entrance gate. We’ll pass the barrier and see the blue marking of the cycle path. From here we’ll ride along the route following the markings.
