Müllerthal Trailcamp: great outdoors, great trails, great way of improving your riding skills

The Müllerthal area is most famous for its hiking trails through the sandstone canyons of the white and black Ernz rivers and along the Sure river. On a length of more than 100 km, the Müllerthal Trail ("Leading Quality Trails - Best of Europe" award) passes through all the natural particularities of the region. There are numerous other small hiking paths that meander through forests, pastures and impressive canyons with bizarre rock formations. We can bike on all these treasures, although many are really challenging, due to the multiple stone steps that have been built over the years to explore the rocky surroundings.

 

The approach to explore the area by bike during the two days is very similar to the Trailcamp on the shores of the Esch-sur-Sure lake. We will start slowly and increase the difficulties over the weekend. Whereas the switchback bends are the highlight of the latter, in the Müllerthal, the stone stairs and the rocks covering the underground are what is most challenging. Hence the technical requirement is set to "advanced". It is also advisable to bring along a bike with enough travel: some 140 mm will put the biker more at ease (even though 120 mm might be sufficient). In case there are enough particpants, we will split into two groups. Our basecamp will be in Berdorf which lies in the heart of the Müllerthal and allows hence to go into any direction of interest.
