Cross-Country Skiing Highlight
The ring trails around the Ochsenkopf are something special! Your combination is easily possible and even up to the summit is cross-country skied. There are many cross-country trail entrances from the surrounding villages to avoid possible overcrowding. Here is the link to the current cross-country skiing and snow reports: fichtelgebirge.bayern/natur/wintersport/schneebericht-langlauf and here is a great compilation of 'Fichtel-Outdoorer': komoot.de collection/1029697/-langlaufen-im-fichtelgebirge?page=2
Have fun and Ski Heil! :-)

Perfect entry to the two ring trails. Parking at the car park in Grassemann, from there it is only a few 100 meters to the access trail to the Unteren Ringweg. From there everything is perfectly signposted.
If you want to ride the shorter but higher Obere Ringloipe, you can get on well here, because it goes quite far "down". This avoids a long, steep climb right at the beginning.
