The last 200m before you leave St Amarin the road is very steep. There is hardly any traffic and up to Geishouse the road is good. The forest road between Geishouse and Ten Haag is very bad (summer 2020). I have therefore not cycled it. From St Amarin to Geishouse is ok, therefore 2 stars. See also ... read more

De laatste 200m voor je St Amarin verlaat is de weg erg steil. Er is nauwelijks verkeer en tot Geishouse is de weg goed. De bosweg tussen Geishouse en Ten Haag is heel erg slecht (zomer 2020). Die heb ik daarom niet gefietst. Vanuit St Amarin tot Geishouse is ok, daarom 2 sterren. Zie ook vele commentaar bij klim vanuit Moosch.
