    The Lingeser dam in Marienheide has many faces that can be encountered on the circular trail. On the one hand, the reservoir offers a lot of fun and you will pass three campsites - on the other hand, it is a breeding and nesting area for many different waterfowl. While the campsites and swimming areas

    If you want to hike around the Panzertalsperre, then why not take a trip to a refuge for rare animals and plants? The dam and the adjacent forests and streams have been a nature reserve since 1997.

    

    The route itself is laid clockwise in one half on a small asphalt road, on the other half on a gravel road

    On a hike around the Eschbachtalsperre you get on the one hand great nature and on the other hand, you can still learn something really. The circular walk around the reservoir is at the same time a nature trail - so also ideal for a walk with children. To create it, you need no special condition - the

    The Silbertalsperre is on the maps also under "Schevelinger dam" led - she dams the Schevelinger Bach. But the romantic name "Silbertalsperre" becomes much fairer for the very small and very fine reservoir. You are already around after about two kilometers, but get a worthwhile look into a wonderfully

    If you come to the Glörtalsperre with its crystal clear water, immediately sets a certain holiday feeling. Not without reason is the reservoir, on the border between the Märkischen and the Ennepe-Ruhr-Kreis, a popular recreational area. A large part of the shore consists of pebble beach and there is

    The Heilenbecker dam is located a bit out of the way near the town Ennepetal, embedded in forests and meadows. The way there is well signposted and there is a parking lot (partly paid: if the "car park attendant" is there, he asks for 1 € per car.) According to the signage, the parking fee is used solely

    The hike around the Hebringhauser dam mostly runs on dirt tracks and forest paths through mainly woody, slightly rough terrain. It goes up and down through hawthorn avenues and past the tracks of wild boars, which have rummaged through the grass for edible.

    After a winding, gentle climb through the forest to the dam wall, the majority of the circular route around the Hasper dam runs relatively flat, about 20 - 30 meters above the lake. The fact that you walk so high above the water and it goes up partly steeply next to the path, you get a really nice "mountain
