Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael KKL-JNF and the Misgav Regional Council recently held an inauguration ceremony for a new hiking and biking trail near the KKL-JNF Australia Park at the Segev Forest. The trail is part of a biking trail project developed by Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael KKL-JNF.

The circular bicycle path is 13 km long and 735 meters high with a moderate level of difficulty for bikers. Parts of the track were built with volunteer groups from the Misgav communities, while most of it was constructed by an outside contractor. Segev Forest is an example of a community forest; the public was very involved in the process after characterizing their needs, from bicycle trails to jogging and walking paths.

Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael KKL-JNF is playing a leading role in encouraging and facilitating cycling in Israel. It has developed bicycle trails in the KKL-JNF forests and open spaces as part of its policy to promote a sustainable and mutually- beneficial bond between humans and nature. KKL-JNF’s bicycle trails meet the needs of all sections of the public.
