    After you have packed your night camp and stowed it on the bike, the adventure can continue. If your stomach is growling and you have nothing left of the sacrament, you can either drive back to Hohenstadt or you can set off straight ahead. There are two bakers there and with the first seven kilometers in your legs you have earned an extra chocolate croissant. On the way you also collect the first meters of altitude and look forward to the descent on a really nice trail along the Pegnitz.With new energy you continue to follow the river Pegnitz. You can digest breakfast on smooth gravel paths and enjoy the beautiful view of the river again and again. The undulating terrain ensures a varied and relaxed ride. Behind the small town of Fischstein you drive over a rustic metal bridge directly into the large Veldenstein forest. The forest is part of the Franconian Switzerland – Veldensteiner Forest Nature Park and is really idyllic.You should take a break at the latest at the large perforated stone. The striking rock formation is really impressive and a great backdrop for a rest - and for a photo. Rested, it continues. In the meantime, you have parted from the course of the Pegnitz and continue to drive through the Veldenstein Forest until you leave the forest behind and reach one of the most beautiful natural stages in the whole of Franconia: The Klumpertal embraces you with small ponds, beautiful rock faces, varied paths and so many imposing Look that you don't need to pack the camera in between.The route remains promising shortly before the day's destination. On the Pottensteiner Himmelsleiter tower you can enjoy a unique view of Franconia 26 meters above the ground before the last kilometers of the day are waiting for you. In Pottenstein there is the opportunity to do all the errands for the evening and then check in at the Bärenschlucht campsite. If you would rather let yourself be catered for after this eventful and exhausting day in the saddle, this is also possible here.
