    Very nice hiking trail along the Holzbach. Especially in the summer in hot temperatures, it is still very pleasant and refreshing due to the dense foliage of the trees and the stream. Bicycles and horses are not allowed on the narrow, but well-walked paths, so you can relax and unwind. Due to the length and the rest areas with the possibility to put your legs in the cool water, it is also very suitable for families with small children. In the nearby Dappricher Hof everything can be rounded off with ice cream, coffee and cake.

    The Holzbachschlucht a nature reserve for about 90 years. Easy to reach from Dappricher Hof (Refreshments). The gorge is up to 30 meters deep and here about 1 KM long. You should wear sturdy shoes, even in summer, because the stones can become slippery due to the wet. Many panels indicate the special features. There is also a good picnic area.

    Great tour even with a bit worse weather. Finally, a visit to the nearby cafe worthwhile, but you should inform yourself in advance about the opening times

    Nice little round through the Holzbachschlucht. Partly narrow, rooted paths and steeper climbs. Good footwear and basic condition should be present. Afterwards, have a good coffee and a piece of cake in the Cafe Dappricher Hof.
    In summer it is pleasantly cool in the forest.

    Beautiful, varied route; The highlight is of course the romantic Holzbachschlucht. A cool cyclist after 2/3 of the tour on Lake Wiesensee rounded off the hike! Do not let it unsettle you, if you do not continue up at the golf hotel; There is a path marked there that no longer exists. Continue along the lake for 260 m and then turn right and follow the road.
    Overall, a recommended way!

    These levels have been recently replaced. The old wooden steps were rotten and had to be dismantled. It was decided to replace these steps with metal and commissioned a company from Austria with the construction of the step system. Lets go very well today, both up and down.

    Also suitable for children. They can play in the creek. For those interested, there are plenty of information boards on the nature and history of the gorge. This is a really great section of the Westerwaldsteig.
