The open space surrounding the King of Bahrain Forest in southern Amman is another great choice for running just outside the city. While there aren’t “official” trails through the forest, the (unnamed) streets around the park form a nice ~4 km loop. The terrain is a mix of asphalt roads and dirt tracks. Start at the soccer club or little league field for parking, then follow the roads around the zoo, forest, Magic Land theme park, and Al-yaman Gardens.
Special thanks to Crossfit Crescent, Amman Road Runners, and Running Amman for their help with this route.
