    Part of the route of the "Baldeney Steig", quite narrow and accordingly slippery and slushy when wet ...ruhr-guide.de/freizeit/wandern-und-kletter/der-baldeneysteig/24952,0,0.html

    Great way down the mountain. When it is wet it can get very slippery. Watch out!

    << Sunken road and tunnel mouth at Kotten Lux in Fischlaken >>
    "... Southeast of Haus Scheppen, in a side valley of the Ruhr, an old ravine rises north-south from the lowlands to the plateau. The ravine is about 3 meters wide and 1.60 meters deep in the west-facing slope. The crest of the rampart is covered with bushes overgrown. The northern part of the path is still used today and is well preserved. Halfway up it splits and runs parallel to each other for about 120 meters. The ravine to the east is partially filled with leaf and wood waste. It ends in the Siefen floodplain the "deepest tunnel” of the former Richradt colliery. No remains of the tunnel mouth have survived above ground.
    On the original cadastre map from 1822 and older mining authority maps, it can be seen that the ravine marks an old field boundary. The tunnel mouth is also named here. The ravine served as access to the Ruhr valley and as a transport route for the pre-industrial tunnel mines, whose mouths were located at the foot of the slope of the Ruhr valley. The "deepest tunnel" - often also referred to as Erbstollen - served to dissolve the water from the mountain. On October 4, 1751, the Richradt colliery received the concession from the Abbot of Werden to "drain the Nockens Berge [...] from the Ruhr to the Ruhr through an inherited tunnel from the Nockmanns Wiesen". ..."

    Beautiful path, very narrow, is also popular with mountain bikers, often muddy in places.

    Unique atmosphere from the bottom of the lake to climb the approx. 70-80 meter higher plateau via these natural trails - in very wet conditions, a stream sometimes runs here and the ground becomes muddy and deep.
