    The "menhir" in the title of the tour alludes to a large menhir that stood in the Frankfurt city forest at the western end of the aisle bearing his name until the beginning of the 19th century - before it was dismantled to use the individual parts as landmarks in the city forest. The name of the Hinkelstein waterworks, which was commissioned in 1894 and at that time the largest groundwater system in the Frankfurt city forest, still reminds of the stone.
    Our tour on a gray and quite cool April 16 takes us south of Offenbach over the Rosenhöhe through the forest to Gravenbruch and on to Isenburg. There we follow the path on the edge of the (still Frankfurt) city forest to the west. West of the train station begins a section that is not so quiet thanks to road and aircraft noise: the forest path soon crosses the B44, then continues over the A3 and - as a footbridge - along the parallel B43. After crossing the A5 north of the Frankfurter Kreuz, we already reach the Unterschweinstiege, and from there it becomes quieter again.
    After a short rest diagonally across from the listed machine house at the Hinkelstein waterworks, we roll comfortably into Kelsterbach and down to the Kelstermouth. In times without Corona we would certainly have stopped at the Kelsterbar ...
    But this is how it goes without a stop around the paint factory in the direction of Schwanheimer Düne and then with a good headwind along the south bank of the Main back towards Frankfurt and finally Offenbach.
    A little warning for all those who want to use the Mainuferweg between Goldstein and Niederrad these days: Unfortunately, the riverside path in the area of the Niederräder Bridge is closed again due to the construction work there - a reasonably comprehensible diversion signage is missing.

    Pretty flat, but the headwind (felt mountains) 😂That would be another suggestion for komoot to take over construction sites from Google Map in order to improve route planning
