With its 12 kilometres of varied terrain Lake Scheibe is particularly popular with more ambitious cyclists. Some sections of the loop trail feature gradients and narrow bends, giving the course around Lake Scheibe a reputation as the most challenging route in the Lusatian Lakeland. The sand dunes and vegetation on the southern section of the route are a striking sight. The name of the lake derives from the former village of Scheibe, which had to make way for the open-cast mining.
