    Varied downhill with short feeder passages on forest roads. This is mainly down. Fast, flowing descents, challenging stone and root trails and a short mountain ridge trail.IMPORTANT: do not panic. All jumps can be bypassed via chicken lines.
    Saddle down and off the post goes!
    Trail 1: The Bürgermeieter Trail
    First flowig then steep. Then right on forest road. Links follows the entrance to the 2nd Trail.
    Trail 2: Chipstüten Trail / Section of the DND (Danzturm North Down)
    Here it crackles on the foliage track. At the end (Forstwegkreuzung) turn sharply left and follow the forest highway until the hidden Einstig on the upper Brandkopf Trail (about 50/70 m after the Forstwegabzweig) right to (overlook) is.
    Trail 3 + 4: Upper Brandhead + Lower Brandhead Trail
    The entry Valley-side at the beginning of a slight left turn (easy to miss). 2 jumps. You cross the forest road straight ahead (left down to the shortcut) and drive to the lower Brandkopf Trail (2 parallel variants). At the forest path (lower culture path) turn left to stay in downhill mode. Right it goes to the tiring root trail with uphill sections.
    Trail 5 + 6: Slide & Jump (short + long creek trail).
    The descent follows of course downhill (easy to overlook) at the beginning of the strong, last right turn before the forest road intersection. If you missed the entry or do not dare (steep slide section) drives just 50 m further on the forest and turns sharp right on the next forest highway (Forstmeisterweg) for 50 m. Here then on the left is the entry into the long creek trail (Jump).
    But who has found the short trail above, crosses down the forest and rolls on to the long stream trail.
    At the forest road turn right direction Höhlentrail and short Alpine.
    Trail 7: first third of the cave trail
    easy and flowig
    Trail 8: The short Alpine (Mountain Trail)
    Just follow the initially flat ridge. The last 2/3 are getting steeper and more rooty. Short, steep rock and root passages, as in the case of Nachrodter Klaras Höhe light, between old trees in a dreamlike setting, may let some untrained riders dismount.
    For the DESCRIPTION in detail, see the respective trail-individual descriptions:After these 8 trails, it's just a short forest road up to the Brandkopf parking lot or who still has power on countless other trails in the "Iserlohner forests world"! ;O)
