    The entire area consists of glacial sand dunes, which are largely overgrown with old, gnarled oaks, beech trees and wood pines. There are small moorland and heathland populated by rare animal and plant species. The nature reserve Diersfordter forest also offers two land records: it is the largest contiguous soil acid oak forest in North Rhine-Westphalia, in which the largest population of the otherwise rare stag beetles can be found. After the "flying stag", as the Dutch call it, is also a charming hiking route through the Diersford Forest named.

    The appearance of the forest Diersfordter is characterized by large-scale, near-natural pedunculate oak stands, which can be discovered along the stag beetle route. Ice-age deposits created a sandy, nutrient-poor soil here. Only a few species of trees can handle this barren soil, which is why the pedunculate oak dominates almost half of the area. Old, rotten trees and dead wood create an important habitat for many plants and animals. The most important representative is the stag beetle, characteristic of the old oak forests. Woodpeckers, on the other hand, breed caves in the rotten wood and forest dwellers, like bats, are frequent "followers" of these abandoned woodpecker caves. In many parts there are still mighty, partly crooked and dead oaks and old beeches. These two tree species bear witness to their use as woodland pastures. In the past, pigs and other livestock were driven into the forest (Hutewald) in the autumn. There they should eat their fill especially at the acorns and beechnuts. Pine stands testify to a later reforestation of the areas to cover the high demand for wood of earlier times.

    The Diersford Forest has two entrances. One is found on the grounds of the DSV (German Shepherd Dog Club) with attached large parking lot. Through the forest lead two designated trails. The stag beetle trail and the moor adventure trail. You can combine both ways wonderfully to a hike. Lookout towers are also available. Banks or trash can be searched in vain. This serves to protect the game. Despite all precautionary measures, the African swine flu seems to have broken out there. At least a sign at the entrance points to it. Due to the drought in the summer, the designated bog is unfortunately quite dry. But definitely worth a visit. The varied landscape is fascinating.

    The Moorerlebnispfad in Hammieln is worth a trip whether for young or old. There is only one to discover on site. The paths from the adventure deposit I personally found very pleasant.

    This hiking trail is ideal for families with children and can be shortened again and again when the little legs are tired!
