Mountain Biking Highlight (Segment)
The Eschenlainetal belonging to the Estergebirge, is often called Krottenkopfgebirge. It is part of the Northern Limestone Alps. Through a deep gorge of dolomitic rock crashes the Eschenlaine direction Eschenlohe. At a point where a narrow bridge leads over the abyss, the following is written: "This gorge was after the councilor Dr. Wilhelm Asam (1862-1944) named "Asamklamm", previously called "Schwarze Brüll Klamm". The practical doctor Asam based in Murnau also looked after patients in Eschenlohe. The jetty over the Eschenlaine was built in 1936 by pioneers. "
Through the deep ravine of the Asamklamm the Eschenlaine has made its way. Passing by rugged, steep cliffs, the gently flowing river meanders, but sometimes it can turn into a wild torrent and thunderously roar through the gorges. In the spring when the snow melts or even after long and heavy rains, a dull roar echoes through the gorge, the ash laine becomes a torrential river. Again and again, it has contributed to dramatic disasters. The worst was the Eschenloher floods of 1999 and 2005.

You cycle first and end on a wide gravel road, then on beautiful, all trails through a beautiful mix of forest, gorge, stream and meadow areas. A small reservoir and waterfall with sufficient water level are right on the way. In summer, the lake invites you to refresh your legs in the cool water.

The Eschenlainetal belongs to the Estergebirge, often called Krottenkopfgebirge, and is part of the northern Limestone Alps. In Eschenlohe the Eschenlahe crashes through a deep gorge of dolomite rock. A narrow jetty leads over the abyss, where the following is written: "This gorge was after the councilor dr. Wilhelm Asam (1862-1944) named "Asamklamm". Before that she was called "Black Brüll Klamm". Dr. Asam was a general practitioner in Murnau and also looked after his patients in Eschenlohe. The market Murnau awarded him in 1911 the honorary citizenship. The jetty over the Eschenlaine was built in 1936 by pioneers. "
Through the deep ravine of the Asamklamm the Eschenlaine has made its way. Passing by rugged, steep rock walls, the gentle little river winds its way, which at times can suddenly turn into a wild torrent that thunders through the riverbed. In the spring, when the snow melts or when it rains for a long time, a muffled roar echoes through the gorge, the ashlaine becomes a torrential river. Again and again, it has contributed to dramatic disasters. The worst was the Eschenloher floods of 1999 and 2005.

We were very back and forth about whether we should ride through here with gravel bikes loaded up to 25kg. I am glad we did - there are spots where you will probably have to push but 90% of it is very rideable.We went from West to East, towards Walchensee. I think no matter which way you go there are steep climbs.Highly recommended!
