Rocky Path & The Serpentine

Average Rating:    (3.13 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 8

This trail has two distinct parts, the first being the Rocky Path. This is a difficult steep trail running through woods with lots of rocks. Hence the name! It's quite short, only 2km or so, finishing at the "Red Woods". But it'll test your suspension, hands, arms, butt, and head if given a chance. The second half starts at the Red Woods and is called the serpentine. This part of the trail is twisty & turny while still damn steep. It goes for 3km or so ending at the bottom of the Steigerweg in Heidelberg. Most of this trail is less than a metre wide and decends 450m (1500ft). Have fun!

Summary:
I'm not sure if anyone reads these trail reviews but, on Saturday 2 April 2005, a group of us are going to meet up and ride up to the KoenigStuhl and attempt this trail. Anyone willing to give it a try should meet us at the Georg Huette, at the parkplatz just north of the light to the west of Gaiberg. If you need any additional info, you can email me.

Summary:
I choose to drive up to the top and ride down. There is a park up at the top, haven't been there but heard it was a good for the kids. I have walked the nature trail before and really enjoyed the view. This had been the first time I have ridden this trail and for that matter my first down hill ride. Since this had been my first time down this hill and I was alone I wasn't sure which exact trail I was on. I followed the white upside down triangle route. It was great. There were some rough parts along the way, like a section covered with leaves and couldn't tell what I was running over. A few rocky sections also caused some heart ache. Wasn't to difficult but it did make my arms burn from hanging on. I learned a valuable lesson that day...for every down hill there is an uphill. Because I rode the steepest routes I could find and I really didn't know any other way back up, I turned around and went the same way I came down. I could tell how out of shape I really was. I must have run over something that my tire didn't like. Luckely I made it to the top, about 500 meters from my car, before my back tire went flat. I have no frame of reference to tell you what skill level should be riding this trail, but I can say I had a great time. And plan on going back again and again. Next stop will be the trails in K-town. Keep riding.

Summary:
God I MISS this trail. It is by far the best riding you could ask for. I used to ride it 3 or 4 times a week. It can get hairy in the dark, use good lights both helmet and bar mounted!

Recommended Route:
The route from Rohrbacher strasse allows you to get some killer singletracking in down below the cemetery
