Mountain Biking Tower Trail

*****   Add a review
#6 of 151 mountain bike trails in Germany
#2,266 in the world

This is some of the better technical singletrack in the Landstuhl area. After starting out on the trail, make sure to stay the right. You will ride over a small creek bridge. There is a series of stepped rocks to climb over; this lets you know you are heading in the right direction. When you approach a fork in the trail, take the left for a rollercoaster section of singletrack which will lead you to a rock outcropping. Continue along until you drop off a set of steps and cross over a doubletrack road. Drop off the road and continue onto singletrack which will again spit you out onto an old dirt road. Follow the road uphill until you come to a gate which you can get around. This will lead you to paved road which is referred to as "cardiac hill". Climb cardiac hill until you reach the barricades set up by the hospital. You will see a gravel road to your right. Take that gravel road until it ends in a circle like turnaround. Follow the trail up to the tower and on the side facing the valley, you will find a set of steps. The trail continues at this point downhill. Stay to the left on this trail and it will take you back to the parking lot and trailhead. There are a multitude of side trails to explore, all with fun sections and moderate climbs. I marked the trailhead on google earth. Just look up Landstuhl Germany and look for the hospital. It's a large white building with a long spine section with many ribs on either side.

Getting there
Once in Landstuhl, follow the signs to gate 3 (main gate) of Landstuhl Regional Medical Center (Army). As you approach the main gate, you will crossover a bridge. Just after the bridge, there is a gravel parking area on the left. Park there and the trailhead starts there as well.
