    The Haard is the largest contiguous forest area in (or am) Ruhrgebiet. The Haard is ideal for hiking and cycling.
    It should already be a MTB or trekking bike. (The floor in the Haard is soft and sandy)
    You should also know that the Haard is relatively hilly.
    There is the Haard Walking Park, there are seven routes and about 50km
    There is a great forest trail past St. John's Cross, the Roman fountain and a gallery mouth.
    In Flaesheim there is a great forest playground and the Kohlenmeiler from 1 May.
    There are several lookout towers (fire watch tower)
    My destination was the Waldgaststätte Mutter Wehner (There is a Wanderparkplatz)
    There is still a nice location of mother Wehner ca 5.0 Km by bike across the forest
    The Waldhaus Halter gate
    I hope you enjoy exploring the Haard, it's worth it.

    Wonderful route with heavenly calm. You can take a break at the Köhlerhütte.
