Yaar Ofer is a well-known riding destination situated about 40 minutes north of Tel Aviv. It sits atop the Carmel Mountain Range, and offers a rich selection of singletrack in a fairly mountainous setting. The climbs are not too long, but can be a bit sharp. The trails are mostly technical in nature, with great flow and some good challenges available for those so inclined.

November 11 saw us hit the Ofer trails under blue skies and mild conditions (about 25 Celsius!). The trails are still dusty after the long dry summer, but mostly in good condition. Another couple of weeks and we’ll be looking forward to the winter rains starting up for real!
