    For the wedding of the mining industry there was the so-called mountain freedom, which was to promote the mining industry and granted the miners certain privileges. A rather bizarre privilege was in some areas the right to brew their own beer. And that meant that there were once many breweries in the Upper Harz villages. This mountain freedom is ultimately to blame for the fact that many people know the "Clausthaler", a non-alcoholic beer whose name was chosen based on the old Municipal Brewery of Clausthal-Zellerfeld, but brewed in Frankfurt. All this mess reminds of how great the mountain freedom is that you can enjoy as a mountain biker here. Clearly and with much better privileges. And now we finally reach the decisive point.Privilege number one: You start in the beautiful university city and reach without great effort on a beautiful singletrack, which leads you mainly downhill along the innermost. Almost ten kilometers of flowing descent that ends in Lautenthal.Privilege number two: You can fill your drinking bottle with delicious spring water for free. The Wolfgangquelle makes it possible - where else is there?Privilege number three: You can decide for yourself after a crunchy uptake, whether you just fill your stomach or rather satisfy your thirst for knowledge about mining. Or just do both. In the "Maassener Geipel" there's the strengthening, next door lures the mining trail with exciting information. If you are more into action, you can easily make a little detour to the Hahnenklee Bike Park from here.Finally, you can enjoy privilege number four: a relaxed return journey in the middle of the idyllic nature of the Upper Harz. Past the ponds on the Liebesbankweg, it does not get much better.

    Great and very varied route. In the last 4km but very many fallen trees blocking the way and are difficult to pass. Otherwise, I can highly recommend the route.

    I did 2 Komoot tours in the Harz and one of them was this one. I really liked this tour. It has a lot of variety and beautiful nature. There are many real singletrack here, which are partly overgrown, but everywhere passable.
    Nemesar is right about the last part of the tour. From the campsite Kreuzeck you should (as of July 19) a diversion on other roads. Here is only one way back to find with lots of mud, branches and fallen trees on the way - If you can call it still away ...
    Highly recommended is the Maassener Geipel, where you can eat very Italian Italian lunch (with bombs view) and also the way to the hut is very nice. On the mining trail some interesting buildings can be admired.The previous strong ascent in Lautenthal is mostly on a tarred road, so good to drive and is rewarded with a breathtaking panoramic path with a view of Lautenthal and the surrounding area. Just awesome!!
