Old Downhill Details
Ok, I tried to draw this one, so don't follow the line blindly.
Basically, you start at the same spot as for the SSES-trail. The SSES-trail takes a left after about 200m, to stay on this trail keep to the right at this split. Down through a bombcrater and out again, some flowy natural terrain, then things get steeper. Three technical switchbacks, on steep section, followed by a treacherous drop over an old oak. Then there are two options again: straight ahead, follow the old road and take a right after 50m, or take the chicane left-right to drop right off the road. This one included two more drops and a short flat-to-climb-section and exits on the classical trail.
Check out the link below for a tour of the area. This trail is not included there, but the starting point you will find.
Park your car near the "Wettelsheimer Bierkeller", this is also where this trail exits. You can push up from here (although you might curse me in the middle, very steep parts!), so you already know what you are getting at and so you already know the way.
Alternatively, looking up the hill go right along the forest until the forest road bends left into the woods. Take two lefts at the crossings and when you find the quarry, cross it and start on the east side.
Or, for a good workout, take the steep ramp behind the beergarden. Can you make it in the saddle? Most have to push! Follow the right trail at the crossing, then again keep it to the right, avoid the large stones you see ahead. Shouldn't be too hard to find the quarry, keep it going uphill.

|Thick layer of leaves makes it hard to get grip when it is dry and almost impossible to ride in the wet.|
