Frankenwald planned a mountain bike ride.
May 29, 2020
The approximately 40-kilometer mountain bike tour demands a lot of fitness from you. On gravel paths, partly asphalt and demanding short trail and single trail passages, you can get into the wild and romantic Steinach Valley with the unique Steinach Gorge.In the center of Presseck you get on your saddle and cycle past the Evangelical Trinity Church into nature. If you like, you can of course park your bike briefly and take a look at the impressive church with its ceiling and wall paintings.After a mini climb, you dash down into the Steinachklamm. Once at the bottom, you can and should shift down a gear and soak up one of the most beautiful areas of the Franconian Forest. After all, Thor is said to have created with his hammer the legend that valley through which the Steinach winds. From the Steinach rock around the corner you also have a great view of Stadtsteinach.From now on the calves get a lot to do, because it goes uphill. Once you have mastered the approximately 200 meters in altitude, you race down to the pretty chapel on the Traischelberg. A resting bench invites you to take a break here. The narrow Köstenhof Trail gives you a rooty farewell to the great route before you arrive in Presseck again.
