Mountain Biking Schachen

  Add a review
#96 of 151 mountain bike trails in Germany
#18,279 in the world

This trail is not for beginners or any one lacking in skill or physical condition. The trail starts off flat for the first couple hundred yards and then becomes a steep 7 mile climb. The first two miles are moderate, and then look for a trail on your left. Take the left and another immediate right turn. The next 2.5 miles are hard. Than the trail becomes extremely rocky and requires a great deal of agility. The trail remains rocky the rest of the way, coupled with several switch backs and weaving along the sides of a few cliffs. Final there, at the top you will find a fancy wooden house. This was the German King Ludwigís hunting cabin, so it is visited very heavily on weekends and holidays by hikers. Suggest trying to ride during the week, to make the best of the awesome down hill you have going back.
