Timna Park Cycling Trails

Timna Park us a hidden paradise for cycling addicts. Eilot Economic Company, in cooperation with the Ministry of Tourism and the Jewish National Fund, have constructed approximately 70 km of spectacular cycling trails throughout Timna Park. The highlight of these trails is the "Mine Single’’, built by cyclists for cyclists, implementing unique construction techniques. The trail is suited for cyclists riding behind each other, hence its name - Single. The trail winds along varied terrain and offers cyclists technical challenges.

The trails are divided into several levels, from comfortable family riding to extreme trails. Cyclists under the age of 12 require adult accompaniment. Cyclists can ride their own bikes or rent bikes onsite (extra charge). Please note: The bicycles available for rent are not professional bicycles and are only suitable for family single riding.
