Mountain Biking Taunus

****   Add a review
#17 of 150 mountain bike trails in Germany
#5,380 in the world

From the Sandplacken trailhead you have an entire network of trails available. They are all very well marked by little shapes of animals (such as a fox, eagle, deer antlers, etc...). I usually started with the fox and rode to the top of the Grosser Feldberg which is the highest peak (actually a big forested hill) in the Frankfurt area. All the trails are somewhat wide, well maintained and easy. There are some good climbs and downhills.

Getting there
From Franfurt take autobahn A66 west to B8. Go north about 7 miles to Koenigstein and continue on B8 another couple miles and take a right to the Feldberg (a tiny ski area in the winter). A couple more miles past the Feldberg takes you to Sandplacken. There's a parking area and trailhead there.

    Good stuff but mostly double track with some pretty good single track. I gave it a 3 because I'm not a big fan of double track...but it is still a fun area to ride

    I spent 18 months exploring all over the Taunus region. One of the most incredable place to bike. way more then 10 miles to ride. try like 100's of miles to ride from small town to small town or enjoy the beer gardens deep in the forest (Fuchstanz). Waterfalls, breath taking views. climb for days and come barreling down the face of the mountain. Bring layers of clothes as the temp can change on a dime. Enjoy

    Just to add to the previous posting and give a little update on the status - yes indeed, the Taunus trails are still open and very friendly to mountain bikers of all abilities. Happy riding!

    A note I should have included in the description: It's been 12 years since I lived and rode there and I'm assuming the trails are still open to biking. Although I have trouble believing they'd close this to bikes due to the well maintained nature of these trails, you should check before venturing out.
