Steep up, steep down. Single trails can also be ridden uphill, and this requires a certain amount of skill and fitness on the challenging Amorbach route. However, any effort is forgotten when you reach the top of the “legendary” Russenpfad trail. Pure trail enjoyment!
The start of the 30 km long and almost 800 m altitude route, which is technically demanding in sections and consists mainly of beautiful single trails, is at the train station in the Odenwald town of Amorbach. Right next door is the local bike store mb-rad-sport, which offers all kinds of bike-related services. First we ride on asphalt in the direction of Weilbach, then steeply uphill along the Gotthardsweg. At the end of the Gotthard trail, the route turns into a beautiful trail – along the contour line – until it then climbs in narrow serpentines up to the Gotthard ruins. The strenuous climb is rewarded with a fantastic panoramic view. The descent to the Gotthardssattel is short and steep, before an undulating forest path takes you to the start of the Albertsanlagen Trail. The trail leads down to the Albertsanlage in alternating, sometimes narrow serpentines and hairpin bends, sometimes steep, sometimes flatter and with a few steps. After 2/3 of the way you have to cross Neudorfer Straße. The rest of the route follows the cycle path to Schneeberg, first on gravel and then on asphalt. Passing the old school, we ride across fields on gravel to a steep uphill over a meadow path and finally reach a forest path. We follow this steadily uphill until we reach the turn-off to the Bopphütte. Passing this, you enter the Bopphütten Trail. Caution: Here, too, you have to cross a road after approx. 2/3. At the foot of the trail, we meet the cycle path to Kirchzell at Pulvermühle. Follow this to the end of Kirchzell. Here, the path now leads up the valley ditch, partly gently ascending, partly steeper, to the Neidhof. Now we follow a back lane to the B47 to cross it at the “Zwei-Bild” parking lot. The route is slightly undulating on gravel to the start of the “legendary” Russenpfad. We follow these in the upper part in tight hairpin bends, in the lower part flowy and fast downhill with different surfaces. At the end of the road you come back to the B47. We cross this and ride on asphalt in the direction of Amorbach to return to the starting point via the cycle path.
