Similar in nature to Wadi Digla, however the trails are more difficult and geared to advanced riding. I have created maps for both Wadi Digla and Wadi Hof MTB trails. Contact me or the Cairo Cyclist for a copy.

Summary:
A labrynithine network of trails to have a fabulous ride in. The trails are farther away than the Wadi Digla trails and more demanding in all aspects of desert cycling and generally technical in nature. For eight years these trails satisfied my riding jones as I progressed from rigid to free ride. 3-5 hour combat rides were the norm. There are many cliff side trails, high speed technical wadi descents, technical goat trail asscents and descents, and drops galore. Given the proximity to Maadi, the variety, seemingly endless trail combinations, endless challenges, and wild desert scenery this qualifies as one excellent place to cycle for intermediate and advanced riders.

Recommended Route:
Best to go with someone who knows the way or as your navigation skills, trail knowledge, and riding skills develop. Contact: Andre Viljoen (Current Custodian of the Holy Hand Grenade of Single Track)

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Wadi Digla and Area 51.

Summary:
It's time that some more detail is given as to just how the heck to get there since it is way worth it. As you enter the Wadi Digla there is a clear up-and-out on the right side. Take it and at the end of the 1/2 km ravine bear left and follow the obvious jeep trail that climbs steadily. About 2 km up there will be an enormous U-shaped cliff on the left which is what is left over from the waterfall that empties the huge wadi (canyon) to the right. Enter this wadi and enjoy a wonderful single-track which culminates at a walk-out up and left. At the top go right along the wadi egde at first but quickly climb out at the obvious exit on the left. At climb's end, descend right and follow the scant single track up the wadi that is much more open now eventually crossing the only road in the area. The entrance to the Wadi Hof is left a bit and is fairly well marked by tire tracks. Descend in the obvious ravine until you dump into the immense, incredible, Wadi Hof. Turn right and after about 2 km of riding in the wide-open wadi, you will reach the box canyon to end all box canyons. All the riding starts from here or an upclimb that begins about 1/2 km back on the left. The riding is some of the best in the country.

Recommended Route:
Wadi Hof

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Wadi Digla is good, weekly riding and as long as you have a compass, some brains and plenty of water, you should be fine. Enjoy.

Summary:
pretty hardcore with plenty of downright dangerous drops and fast downhill sections with no room for error.if you loose it 80 % of the spills is over the handlebars. spetacular scenery,fast riverbed setions,murderous climbs,plenty technical.hardtails need not apply,as the area is very rough with lots of rocks and uneven terrain.a good strong seatpost will help. riders who knows the area will enhance the enjoyment of the ride.do not ride alone as virtually nobody(except us)get out there.a truelly unique mountainbiking experience for the enthusiast.

Recommended Route:
no specific route,just get into the canyons and folow the ancient deer/camel singletrack.one to four hours of hard work.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
wadi digla and the area between wadi digla and wadi hof.
