“Freeride is alive! Steep, rooty, rocky. Very difficult when wet.”

There's plenty of free parking at the Sportpark Bad Heilbrunn. A couple of nice italian restaurants are the bottom for post ride beers and pizza.
Watch out for fallen trees. Only recommended for advanced/expert riders.
Once you have churned your way up the gravel road - all 700 steep vertical meters of it - to the cross on the summit of Zweisel mountain, you are greeted to some beautiful views of the bavarian foothills. As you take in the views and enjoy a well-earned break, start thinking about throwing on whatever protection you brought with you, set your rig to full squish, and let some air out of your tires. What awaits you is approximately 2300ft (about 700m) of some raw straight down served sunny side up freeride singletrack. Steep, extremely technical terrain involving off-camber root sections, tight switchbacks, loose rock obstacles, and a healthy measure of all of the above combined. If steep, slow speed, off camber, loose tech is your thing, this is the trail for you. There are minimal opportunities for speed or flow and route finding can at times be difficult due to the multiple lines people have carved down the mountain. At the end you are treated to a beautiful flow section that is over too soon but is a welcome respite from the intensity of the trail above. Watch out for fallen trees.
From the top go down the open grassy area in a west/northwest direction from the cross. From there you'll go through a small gate between two trees (please close behind you). From there the trail is fairly obvious and line choice is entirely up to you. All offshoots either dead end or reunite with the main trail very quickly so you won't get lost. Use the MTB App if in doubt.
