Mountain Biking Highlight
The Halde cross is one of the largest mining dumps in the Ruhr area. On the highest point is a 30-meter-high steel column with light-emitting diodes, which is visible from afar, especially in the dark. The view goes over the eastern Ruhr area and the southern Münsterland. Immediately north of the heap beyond the railway line are the Halden Haus Aden 1 and 2. This heap is particularly popular with mountain bikers and is currently being partially converted into an MTB course (as of spring 2016)

Attention! There is no official MTB route here. The built trails with jumps on the main dock were now closed and made impassable with green waste and trunks. MTB-DRIVERS are tolerated here only on the paths created. Foresters and other supervisors attack the drivers here offensively. The remaining trails are unfortunately illegal.
Currently there are 4-5 trails that have been around for some time. As long as nothing is built, they will probably be tolerated but not legalized.
The downhill track on the 2nd heap is probably no longer maintained and is badly wild. Partially nevertheless fahrbahr. Since there is nothing else in the immediate vicinity, the heap is the best way to travel. But beware, the trails cross the trails. So please be considerate otherwise MTBler be hunted again.
