Trail Color Marker: red

You will embark on the trail leaving the lake on the path that leads to Solomon's Pillars. At the western end of the Pillars, you will connect with the 'single-track' section that leads to 'HaPitria' (the mushroom). After about one and a half kilometers you will join the road and ride towards HaPitria. Turn left (with the single-track sign), and you will arrive at HaPitria Visitor Center, wherein there is a demonstration of the ancient method to produce copper. From there you will ride to the highest point of the track and a breathtaking view of the entire Timna Valley.
You will continue to ride through colored sandstone hills until you reach the observation point of the new Timna mines. From there you will return through the embankment back to the lake.
