Wadi Degla ("wadi" is Arabic for "valley") lies in the northern part of the Eastern Desert and runs east to west for 30km to drain into the Nile Valley at Maadi, south of the Governorate of Cairo. The area, which encompasses 60 kmÂ², was declared a Natural Protectorate in 1999.
The Wadi provides an excellent trail network for all skill levels.
The great thing about Wadi Degla is that it offers a variety of great rides for all skill levels.
The main trail (wadi floor) is fun, easy ride that starts at the wadi gate and extends eastward for about 10.5km. Terrain is mostly light sand and gravel, with the occasional rough sections of scattered rocks or thicker sand, but nothing to trouble the beginner/average rider.
The north and south plateaus of the Wadi provide a vast network of trails that is sure to satisfy advanced riders.
