Essels Weg

Average Rating:    (4 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 1

This is a great epic ride thru the Speesart mountains of central Germany. Mostly nice dirt/gravel roads but also some cool single track.Approx. 5,000 vertical feet of climbing, nothing long , just alot of short and towards the end mean little climbs. If you make to the end before 4 PM you can reward yourself with mug of killer monk beer from the monestary.

Truly an cool epic ride thru the lush green forests of the Spessarts mtns. Not technical at all, a beginner could do it if he/she was in decent shape. Nice donwhill at the end.

Recommended Route:
Pick up trailhead at the park in Schlüchtern and follow the black E on the white background. (usually after every intersection on trees or fence posts)

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Lots of other great rides in the Spessart, too many to mention.
