living in Reinach, Basel land, and access to mountain bike trails

Hi all. Might be moving to Reinach, just south of Basel Stadt and was wondering if anyone has any experience with access to mountain biking from there.

Are there any good riding areas close hy, or are the good areas up in Germany?

Thanks so much

Re: living in Reinach, Basel land, and access to mountain bike trails

I know there is a good route up around St Chrischona but have not really discovered any other rides that are easily accessible from the city. I'm really looking for one hour(ish) routes from Basel Stadt that can be part of a regular exercise regime. Please let me know if you have any recommendations.

I would suggest to have a look at Ermitagestrasse, Arlesheim. I haven't experienced cycling there, but have seen few people.

From Reinach/Arlesheim you can go up Gempen.
It's a one hour slog up and a 10 minute descent.
It's very popular and has a number of variations to go up.
Just over is Blauen (?) as well behind Laufen.

There are tons of trails about. You can buy a MTB map from Bidder and Tanner for Baselland.
Mountain biking in this region is very popular.

I would recommend joining the MTB meetup group Basel badgers.
They have do lots of rides in the Basel region every month.
