The round trip ALB-GOLD Wadenbeißer has its starting point at the Waldheim in Albstadt-Ebingen and steers over the heights into the bottoms of the south-eastern city area. Panoramic views of the castle rock, flowparts, downhills peppered with tight hairpin bends and drops, exhausting uphills, natural trails through shady deciduous forests and the Alb plateau are the goal. Let yourself be infected by the mountain bike feeling on the Swabian Alb. A mountain bike, helmet and driving skills are certainly appropriate for the trail hunting!


 From the starting point at the Waldheim in Albstadt-Ebingen we drive first a few meters on a tarred road, which is also used by hikers, in the direction of Schlossfelsenturm. The unmistakable panoramic view from Schlossfelsen including the tower is worth a detour every time and can be reached by following the yellow hiking signage. Who wants to get ahead without detours, branches even before the viewpoint at the top right into the Downhill Schlossfelsen and rolls on the first winding trail section, which also requires technology in tackling the hairpin bends, fun in the direction of the valley. Attention a road crosses! (Driving difficulty: S2). At the end of the descent we cycle on a natural trail above Ebingens comfortably through the forest (driving difficulty: S1 with a S2 point). Attention to the Donau-Zollernalb-Weg leads here to about 200 m identical! We cross the driveway to the forest home for the second time and follow the trail over a large root further into the forest until the route leads downhill past a spring well to the Bitzer riser (driving difficulty: S1).


After we have passed the Bitzer Steige the tour steers us on narrow, flowing paths through the idyllic Ottmartal (driving difficulty: S0 to S1). On a short, crisp climb follows a varied passage, which runs mostly on forest roads and with short trail sections (driving difficulty: S1), is provided. Overall, this route is ideal for drawing strength.


On a mix of different floor coverings and another trail section, which kinks left just before the end in 90 degree angle (driving difficulty S0 to S1), want below the Mühlen-, Galgen- and Eschlesfels to the parking place Setze 4 km uphill under the tires. Once at the top, we pass the "Hotel-Gasthof zum Süßen Grund" on the right hand side. Here, not only your own energy needs can be covered, but also your E-MTB is taken care of at an e-bike station of Bike Energy. The studded tires then roll almost effortlessly up to the "Sandlöcher" across the attractive plateau of the Swabian Alb.


On the following part of the trail, which is partly tackled on paved partly on natural ground, we pass left hand, slightly off the trail, the Waldgasthaus "Zum Schönhaldenfelsen" at the eponymous "breathtaking" vantage point. Attention Traufgang juniper height crosses! During a break, the anticipation of the most impressive trail section of the route can already rise to immeasurable. On a full 1.7 km lure legendary, challenging trail slopes on the downhill Schönhalde with the desired flow character (driving difficulty: S1 to S2), spring forked passages through the tennis valley (driving difficulty: S0 to S1) and a bottleneck in the rough up and off the landscape (driving difficulty: S2).


The smallest front chainring is forced to work one last time after the Uphill Jausenteich (driving difficulty: S0), sliding passages depending on condition and technique included! After having reached this challenge on the highest point of the tour, it goes past the climbing park to the recreational area Waldheim. In good weather, a cool drink in the Bavarian beer garden at the Waldheim can review the experience.
