Trail Description
About this trail
Miles and miles of twisty, curvy, up & down singletrack. Not much on the technical tip, but the scenery is a nice compromise.

Q: I've been out there twice and we've only hit a lot of waldweg trails. Not really any sinlge track that everyone talks about. Can I get some help as a starting point. Dying for some good riding. I live in Kaiserslautern. -grains13

A: This trail is on Google maps as the F trail and is marked as such on the path. Plenty of single and double trails that lead into town and you can head the wrong way if you aren't paying attention, but the trail is well marked so it shouldn't be too much of a problem. I parked at Petersberger Weg 21 66976 Rodalben, Germany 49.250592, 7.610460 This is a great place to park and puts you right at the trail going counter clockwise around the town. All single trail for the first 3 miles... Had to turn around cuz I'm out of shape.

Review: This is one of the greatest trails I have ridden in my life. Very well marked with plenty of double tracks that lead off the single track that head back into the city. We had to bail off the trail because my friend got tired after about 15 miles on the trail. We had a very nice time. Soon as spring hits we will be back out there to try to conquer the whole thing. There was only one problem with the ride. They are in the process of putting in an underground pipe so we had to climb around a huge ditch to get to the other side of the trail. There is a great variety of terrain on this trail. Make sure you bring plenty of water and food on this ride cause you will need it. I will be hitting this trail at least once a week in the Spring.

Review: Pretty awesome trail, wish I was in better shape.

Review: A couple of things after seeing the other reviews: 1.) This is a world-class trail 2.) When the F-trail is followed correctly, it is 99% singletrack 3.) Go early in the morning to avoid the hikers- they love this trail, too- and enjoy the sun pouring rays through the trees in the mist... Ride over creeks, past waterfalls, and through caves. Can't be beat. To ride with an english-speaking group, contact the area-local KMC Cycling club by visiting their forum site. Good group of folks.

Review: I haven't ridden this trail yet, but it is part of the Mountainbikepark Pfalzerwald. So, of course it is legal to ride on. www.mountainbikepark-pfaelzerwald.de

Review: I just want to dispel the rumor that Mountain Bikes are not allowed on this trail. This is completely and totally NOT TRUE. There are certain places in Germany that do have such restrictions but Rheinland Pfalz is not one of them. This comes from the president of the Rodalben Mountain biking club. He says that mountain bikers are allowed on any of their trails in the Area. But he doesnt mind that the Americans think this is a rule, as it tends to keep the number of riders on the 'F' trail to a minimum allowing more local riders to have the trail to themselves. Bottom line, this stupid rumor is UNTRUE. So get out and ride!!

Review: This is by far the best singletrack we've found in Germany so far. After traveling to Wurzberg, Nuremberg, and all over Bavaria to so called "singletracks" this was the first to fulfill it's promise. I biked the F trail with 2 guys who have been riding advanced level tracks all over Honduras and the west coast of the US. We all agreed that this was not very technical but provided some great climbs, fun rock and stair hops, and some decent downhills. Recommend it and the first Gausthof on the left on the way into town!

Review: Very fun singletrack. In this area, MTB's are banned from trails less then 2m wide however, as with most trails, if you dismount and give way to hikers, all seems fine. The "f" trail is the one to ride here. Plenty of roller coaster sections, rocks and roots. Awesome if you have a 5-6 inch trail bike.

Review: Not the hardest trail ever but a great ride for a Sunday afternoon. Some long climbs but over all a nice rolling trail with some good down hills
