Eckersprung climb starts at the ranger station Scharfenstein, after a short part on a forest road, you follow a singletrail up to the headwaterrs of the Ecker. The Ecker is the former inner German border at that point. For the very last part up to the Goetheweg, you might need to carry your bike.

Access Info

Standing at the ranger station Scharfenstein looking up the Hirtensteig, the entry to the trail is on the right. Starting from the top, the entry is clearly marked as (hiking) trail. The first 50m are just looking quite rough
