Short, moderate climbs across the Hunsrück between Büchenbeuren, Kastellaun and Lieg require only moderate cycling ability. The route towards the Moselle is then downhill all the way. In the opposite direction, the 2.5 km-long main incline between Lütz and Lieg up from the Moselle requires considerable strength, at up to 10 %. Since it runs on a tarmacked forest path, however, it may be used undisturbed by car traffic.
Course: 41.5 km forest, farm or cycle trails 8.5 km urban roads without cycle trails 8 km roads outside built-up areas without cycle trails
Surface quality: 50.5 km tarmacked surfaces 7.5 km water-bound surfaces well suited for touring bikes
