From the tranquil village of Felsberg, this round tour leads up a forest road through open fields and later through the forest. On the descent, however, it's over with the cosiness; for this is technical from the start, steep in places and with several places interspersed with stones and with some narrow and difficult hairpin bends. If you like demanding and technical trails, this is the right place for you. Shortly before Benis Boden the trail branches off to the left and at the end there is a portion of flow waiting. The trail along the Rhine river back to Felsberg is also very fluid and fun to ride.
