The tour captivates with one thing: crisp altitude! In return you will be served numerous magnificent views, best single trails and fast descents. Forests, open spaces, ridges and valleys ensure that you don't get bored. If you want to keep it a little shorter, you can turn to Wolfersgrün.The almost 50 km long demanding tour starts in the rafting town of Wallenfels in the valley of the Wild Rodach. Once you have left the hiking parking lot behind you, the first climb is already waiting. You already enjoy great views from a beautiful trail, then the path becomes a gravel track. In the Silberberghütte you can relax from the steep passage with a view of the Rodach Valley.The first rapid descent takes you to the Leunitztal. After following the river for a while, you can look forward to a roller coaster ride through the forest. Short uphill sections alternate with fast descents. At the Max-Marien-Quelle you can fill your bottle with fresh spring water that you need for the next calf-biting climb.In the Lamitztal you can let your bike roll leisurely. Perhaps you will also make a detour to the Floßlände Schnappenhammer, where raft trips on the Wilder Rodach take place from May to September. If you have tackled the last mountain to the Schlossberg chapel, you have almost returned to the starting point. From here it is (almost) only downhill.
