The forest route is an MTB tour that is suitable for anyone. Although it doesn't pose any major technical challenges, it does have some toughish climbs and fast descents.

The forest route also starts at the tourist centre, subsequently leading on past the campsite and straight through Ommerscheid Forest up to Meyerode, then on to Wallerode Forest and finally into the forest of St. Vith. Like the Bohlscheid circuit, it returns to Schönberg via the ridge along the border. Challenging in terms of fitness and appealing in terms of landscape, this route is worthy of recommendation at any time.

Author’s recommendation

In Schönberg there's a very good cycle shop and some possibilities to stop in for refreshment after the tour.
