Mountain Biking Highlight (Segment)
Mountain Biking Highlight
Planned by komoot and Basti G.
This short bike tour is a great match for nature and local history. It is technically and conditionally quite simple, you can do it easily with normal basic fitness in two to three hours. There is time to find out a bit about the beautiful Odenwald, which you can do right at the starting point of the tour in the "Geopark Information Center". It is mainly about the geology of the Odenwald and about the mining of granite and sandstone, the two most important mineral resources of the area.The practical part follows. Now you look at how it can drive on the floor of the Odenwald. A short ascent to warm up, then meandered the route first relaxed partly on asphalt, partly on gravel through the beautiful valley of Ulfenbach to Unter-Schoenmattenwag. From there, a longer ascent follows the high Geiersberg (485 meters) to the 518 meter high small Meisenberg. On the way you will roam the small village of Raubach. In the event that you are after a little refreshment, worth a small turn to the right: The Landgasthof Raubacher height is among bikers and hikers a popular break destination.Towards the end of the tour, a few beautiful trails await you again. Past the Rossbrunnen it goes uphill for a last time, before you spit out a trail through the beautiful meadows back in Aschbach. Since you are definitely hungry, we have put the end of the tour right in front of the local pizzeria. Buon Appetito!
