    The Eckersprung is the border between Lower Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt. It used to be the death strip, today called the Green Belt. Here is a refuge and a rest area. In addition, a stamp office of the Harzer hiking nobility.

    Stop on the way to the Brocken. There is also the entrance to the Eckertrail - technically demanding at the beginning, then flowing.

    Challenging trail, S3-S1, interlocked, in places like a washed out river bed, fields with large roots,
    only the entry is steeper

    Stamp 136 / Eckersprung
    The Eckersprung (890 m above sea level), the source of the Ecker, is located at a rest area directly on the Goetheweg, which leads from the gatehouse to the Brocken.
    The Ecker takes numerous streams from the bogs below the Brocken, e.g. the Königsbach, the Morgendbrodsbach and the Abbe and then flows into the Eckertalsperre. After leaving the dam, it flows through the idyllic, partly deeply cut Eckertal and flows into its lower reaches, which for the most part is the state border of Saxony-Anhalt ./. Lower Saxony corresponds to the village of Wiedelah in the Oker.The stamp box is located in the refuge at the rest area. If you don't want to follow the Goetheweg to the Brocken from Eckersprung, you can return to the Torfhaus via the triangular pole HWN 168, the hop sacks and the burial.

    Has kept me dry on my last one. Used directly for the break and had a nice chat with another biker.

    The Eckersprung refuge is located directly on the Ecker and is a nice resting place.

    The bike to the summit is exhausting but nice

    The trail is initially steep, stony, rooty, muddy and invites you to OTB's! ;) After some time then comes a section of coarse gravel that you can jets along quite well and well ... always along the Ecker! However, parts of the track were washed away by heavy rainfall! Exposed roots and large stones make the track then impassable. I am then on occasion of the Ecker on a paved road, because it just did not make fun anymore! Not again!

    Very nice highlight. There is also a stamp for friends of the HWN.

    Super Trail entang the Ecker source. Initially blocked and technically (S3) but super entertaining - then it gets calmer and turns into a S1. If you leave here I recommend the further way over the bridge and Pionierweg, because the subsequent way down to Frickenplatz is a very boring forest highway (but at least no gravel).

    Of course, the trail is passable, maybe not by any or inexperienced mountain bikers.
    Technical Trail S3 to S1, screwed up, rooted and kicking again and again ...

    Great technical trail for those who like it. The entry selects already.

    Demanding trail, S3-S1, blocked, stretches like a washed-out river bed, fields with large roots.
    Only the entrance is steeper.
    The trail is passable, maybe just not for everyone or inexperienced mountain bikers.
    Technical trail S3 to S1, blocked, rooted and pedaling again and again ...

    Some trees are currently lying across. Climbing is the order of the day. Sometimes not easy. But you get through.

    The first few meters at the Eckersprung are demanding, it will be easier quickly.
