Mountain Biking Kafertal Wald

**   Add a review
#120 of 150 mountain bike trails in Germany
#11395 in the world

A good sized collection of hills, sloped berms, elevated decks, a couple ramps, and some moguls. Mild to medium technical riding, with a couple widowmakers thrown in.

Getting there
Starting from downtown Mannheim, get on the 38 towards Viernheim/Kafertal. Get off at the Walmart exit, and take the overpass towards the "BFV" US Army facilities . Go through the traffic circle and make a right, then another right. Head past the back of the Army post, and keep going into the woods. Park near the waterworks, and head straight from there, around a gate, and take a right on a singletrack marked with white cloth tape. There is a large clearing at the end of this after crossing several main trails, and to the right is the technical stuff.

    ZiggyPiggy's correct in that there are many trails in this park that are often used by horses, and many that are wide & heavily traffic'ed by other trail users.

    However, SINGLETRACK does exist here. It can only be found by venturing off the beaten-path, and exploring trails that appear at first to be uninteresting. The trail-maps posted at the trailheads do not show the smaller singletrack trails; and for good reason, as they are many. The best section is easy to miss, which is why trail-builders have chosen that particular area to build their Shore-style obstacles and trail.* Review edited 4/27/2008

    I'm an XC biker from NC stationed in Germany for the past 3 years. In hopes of finally finding some good SINGLETRACK in Germany I drove a hour and a half to check this out. Needless to say I am further disappointed. This trail reminded me of something I would've found as a kid in the woods behind the local grocery store back home. All dead end trails, nothing technical, mostly breaks, and a note to the reviewers that call this SINGLETRACK, ate up horse trails are not singletrack! The only way I would even consider riding this trail again was if I was living in Mannheim. All I heard of was the great biking here. I have to say most of the trails I've riddin here don't even campare to the Fl. trails I've rode. And that's not saying much. Where if any is the singletrack in Germany!

    This trail is interesting not exactly what I was hoping for, but its something I can relate to back home in the US.
