    On weekends and public holidays, you can drive to the Rennsteig train station to get to the Gera cycle path. From Ilmenau the Rennsteig shuttle runs to the Rennsteig station. The timetables can be found at rennsteigbahn.de/content.From the Rennsteig train station, take the Rennsteig cycle path to the Schmücke, the starting point of the Gera cycle path.On the way it goes almost continuously uphill, some sections are also flat. When cycling through the Thuringian forest you are mostly surrounded by tall trees, in some places you also roll over clearings with wide meadows. Overall, you are incredibly close to nature on the trail, enjoying silence and seclusion. At resting places with shelters you can take breaks. At least on the Schmücke you then have the opportunity to stop and also to stay, if you do not want to continue immediately on the Gera bike path.
