Taunus Bikepacking is a bike ride taking in all of the Taunus region. The seventh edition starts in Eppstein and uses unbeaten paths along well known and lesser known sights.

What is Taunus Bikepacking?

Not a race and not a commercial event, simply what each rider makes of it. It might be a journey to discover the region, a chance to leave their comfort zone, an adventure, a challenge, a good opportunity to find out what it is for you. Let’s find out. Each on their own and yet never really alone.

This route leads to the borders of Taunus as well as deep into its heart, including many ups and downs.

The ride begins in Eppstein and runs clockwise. The elevation profile is challenging, with about 20 meters of elevation per kilometer. There are no long flat bits. Many of the climbs are relatively short but steep and the surface keeps on changing. After this ride you’ll know the Taunus better than most locals.

The track runs mainly away from roads on quiet farm and forest lanes and a few trails. You’ll find shelter huts, hotels, campsites, fountains as well as resupply options along the route.
