Beautiful mountainbike tour through the Nationalpark Harz with insights into the characteristic mountain landscape around Torfhaus The tour starts along the Torfhaus moor on a path with a view to the Brocken in unspoilt nature. The Goetheweg continues up to the source of the Ecker River. The route now leads between the peaks of Wurmberg (971m), Achtermannshöhe (925m) and Rehberg (893m) through the beautiful landscape of the Hochharz. With relatively little vertical meters, the path mostly runs along the deep valleys and offers several options for refreshments. The last kilometers of the route run on a towel-wide single trail: The approximately 4120 meter long Clausthaler Flutgraben exists since 1827 and is part of the UNESCO World Heritage 'Oberharzer Wasserregal'.
