Mountain Biking Highlight
There is an official network of mountain bike trails on the Hoheward dump in Herten. Information and the route can be found at: landschaftspark-hoheward.de/hoheward/aktiv/mountainbike.html.
But a trip here is not only worthwhile for this 6.5-kilometer cross-country route. The heap rises more than 100 meters above the surrounding area and the paths up are correspondingly steep. From above you have a fantastic view over the Ruhr area and the southern Münsterland. There is a large sundial and the Hoheward Observatory on the plateau of the heap, which, however, has not been open to the public since shortly after it opened due to construction defects. Enduro riders are out and about on the neighboring Hoppenbruch heap.

The newly opened since some time MTB track at the dump Hoheward
is really fun. Whether downhill (down) or uphill (high), every section
very well considered and created. In a full round you come to about 6 km and 170 hm. Also some small ski jumps are installed

Definitely worth a visit. Although the observatory is nuclear waste, the view from the dump is overwhelming - if you can plan the visit so that the weather services predict a 100km + view. Balcony promenade, promenade bridge, sky rises, summit plateau and sundial should be seen.
