Mountain Biking Highlight
It is the Luca oak.
The oak is named after the district forester Ludwig Heinrich Lucas.
It is approx. 27 meters high, has a circumference of 4 meters and is estimated to be over 230 years old!
The lower part of the trunk was bricked up - as far as I know because of a lightning strike in the late 1970s.

"Past the Forsthaus Steinbach, the dill variety reaches the mighty Lucaseiche, which is about 220 years old." For a long time, the inhabitants from the area met here for New Year's Eve and today the Luca oak is a popular hiking destination. " www.hessischer rothaarsteig.de
