A light trail in the heart of the blossoming HaSharon region, which combines remnants of the Coastal Plains with the oldest eucalyptus forest in Israel. Peddle calmly in a forest of carob trees and green grassy areas with both a wonderful winter and spring bloom. The trail is level and comfortable and allows novice riders to enjoy riding in the open and flourishing areas of the park.


How to Get There: enter into Hadera and follow the signs to the Hadera Central Train Station (west). Park your vehicle in the station parking lot.
