The terrain of the Israeli desert is perfect for ambitious trail runners: long singletrack and steep technical climbs in one of the world's most dramatic landscapes. The moon-like terrain is covered with craters, rocky hills, sandy streams, and stunning cliffs. All of the trails are remote, wild, and have harsh conditions—only for the big boys and girls. In this collection, you'll find some of the best lines that the Israeli desert has to offer.
