We meet outside York International Hotel, near the Fahidi metro station.

Given the heavy traffic, limited parking and different starting and ending locations, we strongly recommend that you take the metro rather than driving to the trail. If you plan to take a taxi, please budget extra time for traffic. The nearest metro station is Al Fahidi (green line).
