October 28, 2019
Even from a distance you can see the cozy place Untertrubach lying in the valley. A few houses, a steeple and: Granny Eichler's campsite! Located in the middle of the green, it is the perfect starting point for a near-natural weekend adventure on the bike. Build your tent, swing on your bike and enjoy the wonderful nature of the Franconian Switzerland for a weekend. On two short tours you will get to know the area around Untertrubach. The tours are so compact that they can easily be mastered even by mountain bike beginners. If you are already experienced and the tours are too short, you can easily extend them, because there are many trails here. Alternatively, you can discover the cultural highlights of the region, try the culinary specialties or just relax in peace and quiet.From the campsite, you first roll leisurely over the Trubach and in the direction of Wolfsberg together with the same castle ruins. Here it is worth a short detour to the ruins, because from there you have a really nice view of the Trubachtal. There are not enough beautiful viewpoints on this tour. A little later, it goes steeply uphill to Signalstein. A steep stairway leads you up to the striking rock, around which you can watch the one or other climber in good weather: There are six climbing routes on the rock.It continues: Beautiful, promising dirt roads and narrow trails, partly through the forest, partly through meadows and fields, you come back to Trubachtal. In the inn Eichler, right next to the campsite, you can strengthen yourself. If you still want to continue, you can take this tour for example: komoot.de/tour/101436040.Tips for getting there: From Forchheim the bus 222 goes directly to Untertrubach (station Untertrubach Abzw. Affalterthal). From Nuremberg the R21 goes to Gräfenberg. From there it is still about ten kilometers to the campsite.
