The Jebel Hafeet Mountain Road, Abu Dhabi

Jebel Hafeet

Spanning some 7.3 miles and climbing nearly 4,000 feet on an 8% grade, the otherworldly Jebel Hafeet Mountain Road, about 90 minutes’ drive southeast of Dubai, is arguably one of the finest in the world. Cut into the Jebel Hafeet Mountain that spans the border with Oman, it boasts 60 corners and a surface so smooth those who’ve ridden it say you’d swear it were a racetrack.
