    The second leg of the tour takes you from the Gasthof zur Post in Plößberg to the Bockl rest stop in Raft, where you can spend the night.This stage takes you to the Czech border area. Here you can explore the traces of the Cold War and find two imposing castle ruins that are perfect for breather between all the fast singletrack (S1-S2) you have today.If you like, you can start the day with a jump into the cool water. The large pond in Plößberg is a beautiful natural lake, which is popular with hikers, cyclists and bathers, especially in summer.Then it is then first crank uphill to Waldnaabquelle, where the German-Czech border trail begins, an absolutely flowing Allroundtrail, which meanders for miles along the border between the countries. The detour and the steep ramp up to the Havran (Rabenberg) is worthwhile for the phenomenal view to the Czech Republic from the lookout tower - and the descent afterwards.Thereafter, the castle ruins along with associated singletrack are on the program. The castle ruin Schellenberg hides mystically behind moss in a wild forest, which is so overgrown that it almost reminds of the more remote temples in the Cambodian jungle. The ruin Flossenbürg, on the other hand, impresses with a very exposed location on a rock and the appropriate view.Shortly before the end you drive past a small trail on Gaisweiher, which invites you to cool down especially after the exhausting climb to the castle. On the beautiful Gaisbachtrail you then roll relaxed to today's stage stop in raft, where you can put up your feet right on the river.
