Trail Description
About this trail
The trails are mostly well-travelled logging/fire-roads, although at some points they turn into two-tracks. At some points near the summit of the ridge (488.1 m!) there are singletrack opportunites. These are generally very fast, short, and pebble-y, so be careful.

Also, near the 5, are two castle ruins, Hirschberg and another, smaller ruins. The small ruins have been blasted, and are unrecognizable except for a few small stone foundations. Hirschberg is slightly better, with the remains of a large toppled stone tower resting on it's large mound.

The scenery up in the Odenwald offers large, panoramic views of the Rhine Valley over Mannheim. On a clear day, you can see over 40 km to the Pfalz mountains.

Review: This trail network is riddled with massive climbs. It seems that the hillclimb represents a majority of German trail-riding.
The way up is hellish, but once near the top of the ridgeline, the views are good, the trails level out, and there are opportunities to pull off and explore some singletracks and small castle ruins. From time to time there are what we call "Ye 'old Bus-stops", which are small pavilions the Germans use to rest or take shelter in.
