Mainz jogging circuit #2: "Through flowery parks, along nice residential homes, though a former limestone quarry and back along the Rhine river"

There is a public parking garage unter Fort Malakoff, in case you need to park your car.

You can shorten this circuit wirth a shortcut at the limestone quarry (see waypoints).

You can also spend much more time exploring the former limestone quarry with its many paths and info boards.

And of course, do not look at the registered time for this trail -- I took many, many photos on the way.

Here also is a link to a the highly recommendable extension (12,5 km) of the "Three bridges running circuit" (Wikoloc id=25451104). It continues further along the Main river, past beautiful floodplain meadows and then crosses the Main river over the barrage & sluice in Kostheim (Staustufe & Schleuse Kostheim):
