A unique mountain bike experience. Two countries, nine summits, and an elevation gain of 4,400m await you: 162 km of pure MTB emotion past the cultural, historical, and geological highlights of the Ore Mountains.

On forest roads, single trails and some main through-roads, the Stoneman Miriquidi leads you along the perfectly sign-posted trail over nine of the highest summits of the German and Czech Ore Mountains.

On each summit, a stamp point and an information board with map and a description of the next trail section is waiting for you. As starting point you can choose any lodging partner. The mountain bike trail is signposted in counter-clockwise direction.

Depending on fitness and time, the unique MTB track can be absolved in one, two, or three days (“Trophy”) or in four to six days (“Open”). With a starter pack you can also secure the hand-made Stoneman trophy designed by Roland and an entry in the official finisher list. And you actively contribute to the preservation of the track.

For all our sakes: Please observe the fair play rules at all times while biking.

Equipment

Out of consideration for farmers and the local wildlife, the Stoneman Miriquidi is only open during daylight. Seasonal opening hours:

 

June: 5am - 9pm (16h)

July: 5:45am - 8:45pm (15h)

August: 6:30am - 8pm (13.5h)

September: 7am - 6:45pm (11h 45m)

 

From September, the Gold tour is only accessible to extremely skilled bikers.

The Stoneman Miriquidi is a class of its own, both in terms of technique and fitness! Nine tricky ascents lead up to just as many fascinating summit adventures.

In respect to driving skills, the difficulty levels mainly range from S0 to S1, with some S2 passages. Don’t underestimate it! The Gold tour is only for technically well-versed and fit mountain bikers. If you have any doubts, take your time for your first tour, and maybe start with the silver or bronze tour.

Das muss jeder für sich selbst entscheiden wie er die Strecke bewältigen kann / soll. Andere fahren die komplette Tour zweimal in zwei Tagen, da frage ich mich auch schon ob hier noch alles sauber abläuft. Auf alle Fälle eine tolle Tour, unbedingt Fotos machen. Gute Fahrt.;-)

Liebevoll organisiert und gut dass wir in drei Tagen gefahren sind, so blieb viel Zeit für Pausen um die Landschaft zu genießen. Ich komme wieder um die Road- Strecke zu fahren. Für Ende August hatten wir sommerliche Temperaturen.

Ich bin die Tour als Silbertour gefahren, es war hart aber leichter als erwartet, da es zwar viele Anstiege gibt, aber bis auf dem zum Klinovec hoch alle recht kurz sind. Wenn einem nicht am Schluss das Wasser ausgeht wie mir :-( ist es eine feine Fitness-Tour. Leider gibt es nur wenig Singletrailanteil. Die Teilstrecke vom Rabenberg runter ist für Hardtails überwiegend ein wildes durchgeschüttel durch Wurzeln und Steine, einen Anschnitt wie den Rubin-Trail auf dem Klinovec sucht man hier vergebens. Sehr Schade! Wo doch angeblich 70% der MTB-Biker Flowtrails bevorzugen. Trotzdem ist die Tour sehr empfehlenswert, bezgl. Landschaft und Leute. Ich werde nach dieser Erfahrung auch die anderen Stonemans unter die Stollen nehmen.
