The single-track continues through wooded areas, some of which belong to Tzippori Forest, and it’s doubtful we’d have been able to access them even just a few weeks ago. On one stretch of the path, pruned branches are still visible along the sides, and it’s obvious that a lot of effort has been put into carving out this trail. I interrogate Dror as to how decisions about the precise route of the track are made, and he explains that at the planning stage most of the work is done on foot, then the bicycles are brought in and the stretch is alternately walked and ridden until the proper route takes shape. There are also cases in which, after several days’ work, it becomes clear that the result is unsatisfactory and then it’s “back to the drawing board” to carve out a new stretch. At the northwestern point of the single-track we come very close to the Adi-Harduf Ring Road, and this is also the point at which the trail begins to make its way back towards Alon HaGalil, and here, too, another KKL-JNF marker post pops into sight.
