The Jerusalem municipality on Wednesday approved the Jerusalem section of the Israel National Bike Trail, a 1,200 km bike trail that will run from Mount Hermon to Eilat.

The path in Jerusalem will run mostly on existing bike paths within the city, including Jaffa Road, the Rail Trail (Park HaMesila), and the Jerusalem Circuit trail, which is still under construction. The route was approved following input from the municipality, the Jewish National Fund, the Environmental Ministry, the Prime Minister's Office List of Heritage Sites, the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel and Cycle Jerusalem.

The National Bike Trail is an initiative of the Bike Israel biking advocacy group.
