Flow Trail, Ottweiler



brief description: 

Flow trail, approx. 2 km long, built specifically for mountain bikes. Takes riders on a terrain-induced rollercoaster experience with various types of jumps, obstacles, steep turns, timber plank trails, etc. The trail is divided into three levels of difficulty. For the most part, it leads through a forest, but there are also parts with an open vista in the background. One leg of the parcours is located in a narrow valley cut with high jagged rock walls. Good camera position on the peaks of the hillslopes. There is also a wooden bridge leading over a footpath.
