At almost 700 m above sea level and in an impressive Franconian forest landscape, the bike tour goes around the "Pressecker Knock observation tower" through rustic farming villages with typical slate cladding, rich half-timbering and proverbial hospitality. You can extend the tour with a detour route to Köstenhof. The KU 6 circular cycle path runs in the Franconian Forest Nature Park.Special features / attractions: Presseck: parish church with late medieval frescoes, observation tower at Pressecker Knock (690 m above sea level); Heinersreuth: Wildensteiner Schlösschen.
Very nice route, especially the little road from Presseck to Enchenreuth up via Rützenreuth I really liked. The hiking trail from Heinersreuth down to the ski lift is beautiful, but on my last ascent there were a few trees across.One could consider whether to skip the route via Schnebes and the state road on the way back. The direct dirt road past the northern side of the Knock back to Presseck is more gentle, shorter and has no cars. He is quite mobile.
