    Passing Landsberg Castle, the path led me through the gloomy forest. Then came some great views.
    The path through the Oftter Bachtal was blocked. Probably because of the fallen trees, but the path was very exciting. And lonely! If there were many people on the road before, it was deserted here.
    Then the path led me up a mountain range and soon we went down to the Oefte Castle. Unfortunately the way was blocked here, so I had to find a way to the Ruhr. The path on the Ruhr was great, a very narrow path. Overall, it took me 5 hours to do the round in the most beautiful sunshine. It was great fun for me, but it must be clear here that not all the paths that are marked are available.

    It was a nice end of the day for me.
    First we went through the Forstbach valley along the stream.
    Then the towpath led me along the Ruhr. It was pretty crowded here, but everyone was considerate.
    After I turned left, it calmed down again. Now paths followed along the fields with a few beautiful views.
    If you don't mind the very high proportion of asphalt, you can expect a beautiful landscape here.
    Overall, I needed a little over two and a half hours for the round.

    A very nice Friday afternoon after-work round. Five years ago I was in the beautiful Stinderbach valley for the last time. I had really enjoyed myself here again.
    Some of the cattle ran through the stream. 😆
    The way back via the Feldstrasse was also okay, since there was usually a small footpath along the way.
    It wasn't quite as busy today, but it should get crowded here at the weekend.
    It took a total of 2.5 hours.

    This Saturday I ran the copper lathe round. Slightly abbreviated and varied in a few places. After 1.8 km I had the urban part behind me and then it was beautiful.
    It is a great hike, always beautiful single trails and wonderful views.
    At picture 7 is a small bench with a great view, grazing horses below and cows above, wonderfully relaxing.
    The weather was partly warm and humid, so I started to sweat well on the many climbs.
    Some hikers were out, but it was well spread out over the route.
    In total, it took me almost 5 hours to take breaks.
    A very recommendable route.

    A wonderful after-work round. I went here this Friday.
    First it was a steep uphill and then for the narrow paths through the natural forest. There are a lot of different great trees here.
    After that, the path led over and over again across fields, where I had great views of the landscape. And on it went on narrow paths, up and down again and again.
    It took me a leisurely 2.5 hours in great weather. There were two steep climbs, good hiking boots are recommended here.
    I liked the round very much, I can definitely recommend it.

    Actually we just wanted to take a walk through the wildlife park and then eat something ...
    We didn't take any pictures in the wildlife park because almost all the animals were hiding. The few deer were surrounded by clusters of people and stuffed full.
    Then we went to Grafengrün and had lunch there.
    During the subsequent hike around the racetrack and along the glider airfield, we saw more animals than in the park. 😂
    We ate a delicious dessert in the Waldgasthof Gut Wolfsaap
    Then it was back to the racetrack.
    We, that's my wife and me. Almost 10 km, my wife liked it a lot, but whether that's why she becomes a hiker ... 😗😆
    But it was a beautiful wedding day. 🥰

    The small loop leads through parks and
    small heathlands in my hometown Oberhausen. Only a few sections lead over streets and at the end somewhat along a large street. Otherwise nice on easy to walk paths along the Reinersbach through two heath landscapes. And back again along the Elpenbach, past the remarkable St. Antony hut.

    I decided to do this little hike pretty late today, so I only started at the power station at 11:30 a.m.
    It went along the Rhine dam to the Emscher estuary and then back through the Walsumer Rheinaue. It was a little drizzly and some people were out, but I enjoyed it. Numerous geese sat in the meadows and the industrial plants in the background gave a special flair.
    It took me a little over two hours in total.

    I have often wanted to see how you can get from the Aaper forest to the Green and Silver Lakes.
    So here, very close to my place of work, I started the evening round.
    First I ran a short distance through Rath to the Aaper forest and then up to Ratinger Blick.
    Shortly afterwards I crossed the autobahn and came to the Silbersee and the Grüner See along paths that were unknown to me.
    There was a bit of asphalt and some walkers on the way, but the paths were wide enough so that everyone had space.
    At the end of the day there was a narrow path along the Silbersee, which was very idyllic and lonely. It was the first winter lap this season where the paths weren't that muddy. But it was freezing again.
    After a little over two hours I was back and I had a lot of fun on the lap.
