Martin Donat planned a mountain bike ride.
April 9, 2020
After a wonderfully quiet night on the natural campsite, the second day in the Hunsrück awaits you. Today's tour is a bit shorter and offers enough air to plan additional activities in between.One possibility would be a closer inspection of the Erbeskopf trail park. The route passes near the park, so that a small detour is easily possible. In the trail park, for example, you could buy a half-day ticket and use the ski lift to save energy, or install a few downhill runs of your own accord using the “No buck on lift” ticket. You can find information about the bike park and ticket prices here: trailpark-erbeskopf.de/#TICKETS.After this trail fun it continues. First you drive through the nature reserve of the "Hangbrücher bei Morbach" with its moist spring moorland and shady forest areas, later you pass the small town of Sulzbach into the wildly romantic Hahnenbach valley. There a whole range of highlights can provide variety: You can immerse yourself in the history of slate mining in this area in the Herrenberg visitor's pit and the attached fossil museum. Only around 400 meters further is the celtic settlement Altburg, which you can visit with or without a guide.A highlight in itself is today's stage goal: in the midst of nature you can enjoy pure tranquility on the Schmidtburg nature campsite - a day can hardly end more relaxed.
