Mountain Biking Highlight
A nice tour to enjoy if someone does not want to have the business around Winterberg. There were a few bikers in the Orketal, otherwise I was alone. Behind Medelon in the direction of Medebach, a small bridge is under construction, this can be bypassed for about 200m on the left, but you have to go through the course of the stream (you can go by MTB) .If you don't want to continue on the road towards Kloster Glindfeld and at the first junction on the right from
From Küstelberg you have to pay attention to bikers and pedestrians again for the last few kilometers, regardless of whether you take the street or the Rothaarsteig. Refreshments are in the town of Medebach or at the Hasenkammer the rabbit hut (above the center park) and after the last climb in Küstelberg a nice cafe at the exit to the left or a restaurant in the center.
