Little Hochharz mountainbike route

Moderate mountainbike tour through the Nationalpark Harz starting in Braunlage along beautiful paths at the Oberharzer Wasserregal: The tour starts with a long climb on easy paths in the scenic Nationalpark Harz. Here in the Hochharz you can find untouched nature and the colors of the forest create beautiful contrasts. The highest point of the route is the source of the Ecker river and has a small hut. From here you continue slightly downhill through the Nationalpark Harz until you reach Torfhaus. The next section will contain a short but demanding uphill section to a singletrail along the world heritage 'Oberharzer Wasserregal'. The tour then leads through a valley to the Rehberger Graben. The Rehberger Graben is also part of the Oberharzer Wasserregal and the path next to the canal makes it possible to go around the Rehberg mountain (893m high) without many meters of climbing. The route then leads along the beautiful Oderteich and with a view to deep mountain valleys back to Braunlage.
