At this point (parking lot "Alte Schmelz") the new themed trail "Trifterlebnispfad Legelbach" starts, and there are information flyers about the various route options. Our favorite: the middle round!
The very first information board No. 1 is not located at the parking lot, but further ahead at the confluence of the Legelbach and Speyerbach (Trift system).This themed trail is super beautiful, especially the many paths directly along the babbling Legalbach - with numerous resting places at old Trift systems.The black film that can be found everywhere is supposed to remove the Japanese knotweed manually.

At the Legelbach in the Elmsteiner Tal lies one of the most important and best-preserved examples of a small Triftbach which flows into the Speyerbach. Have fun exploring.
The transport of wood by water was the most important industry in the area. The ingenious system of the wood drift can be hiked and experienced here. In the Bavarian period, all streams were re-planned, although the Holztrift had been around since the Middle Ages. From around 1820 the systems were built in sandstone, which is why they are still preserved today. Most of the un jointed stone blocks are so well worked and set that they are often still intact even after 200 years.
