MTB Zone of the Sudetes (Strefa MTB Sudety)

It is the only such place in Poland – the largest system of mountain bike routes in the heart of the Sudetes provides over 500 km of trails in the Sowie Mountains and the Suche Mountains, one of the most picturesque regions of Lower Silesia.

Regardless of the skills and preferred types of routes – the Sudety MTB Zone includes cross-country, enduro and singletrack sections – everyone will find something for themselves here. A network of certified accommodation and catering facilities, repair stations and a dozen or so access points scattered throughout the zone (including Głuszyca, Walim, Zagórze Śląskie, Przełęcz Walimska, Potoczek, Bielawa and others), providing parking spaces and the opportunity to read maps makes using everything that is the best in the Sudety MTB Zone even easier and more enjoyable. And if you have enough strength and courage, if you are looking for an even greater dose of adrenaline, you will discover the full possibilities offered by the Zone’s areas by taking part in the annual cycle of races as part of the Sudety MTB Zone Cup – 8 stages, varied, demanding routes and the best riders, all of this in competitions held over a period of six months. In addition to the obvious values ​​and landscape attractions, the MTB Zone also includes monuments of exceptional cultural and historical value not only in Poland but also in Europe – the Srebrna Góra Fortress, Grodno Castle, Riese facilities in Walim or Osówka. What can you expect from the mountain routes prepared by the organizers of the Sudety MTB Zone? Thrilling impressions and diversity – 26 sections in 8 subregions (Bielawa, Dzierżoniów, Głuszyca, Mieroszów, Nowa Ruda, Pieszyce, Srebrna Góra and Walim), hellish climbs and fast descents, mountain, asphalt and forest paths, but above all – fun to drive in stunning natural circumstances.

Amateurs of madness in the XC style have at their disposal, among others The Red Trail (Czerwona) XCO Srebrna Góra route, a five-kilometer loop, which in its initial section runs through trenches from the period of World War II near the buildings of the Srebrna Góra Fortress, and continues next to the historic viaduct that used to support the Sowiogórska rack rail  Railway and through the Lower Carboniferous ravine built of flysch. The Zielona Srebrna Góra route is, in turn, a calmer circle – from the car park on the Srebrna Pass through the vicinity of Chochoł Wielki and the Chłopiny Valley – marked out along forest paths, where we can find a lot of downhill and uphill, pleasant MTB in a classic edition. On the Black C Fortress Srebrna Góra they should have fun – on both variants of the route: C and C1 – not only enduro fans, several sections that run along the fortifications of various parts of the Srebrna Góra Fortress, are great and fast singletrack, and there are also jumps and drops, wooden obstacles, jumps and gangs. Black A Srebrna Góra provides fun with a completely clean enduro – 25 minutes sharply uphill from the Silver Pass, and then again drops, moguls and lots of fun (variant A1, although shorter and more interesting in terms of landscape, running through the gorge is definitely more difficult) . The Żółta and Zielona Głuszyca-Walim routes will test your endurance for a long and demanding ride – the yellow trail version is almost 30 km on forest roads with short asphalt sections, while the green trail – less than 80 km with several kilometers of uphill stretches with an average slope of approx. 6%.
