    "Small ravine in the valley of the Little Kyll The Wolfsschlucht is the lower part of the so-called Horngraben, which extends from the Mosenberg chain to the Little Kyll A narrow path winds over smaller and larger lava and basalt lumps through the gorge.

    Interesting for plant lovers: in the cool and humid ravine there are some rare plant species (which you can view or take pictures of, but leave it alone!). At the bottom of the gorge you can see large basalt columns in an old quarry. Here is also an information board as part of the Georoute with more information. "Source:

    Very interesting basalt formations. Remarkable how the stream worked through this hard rock ...
    The stones are very slippery especially in wet weather - good footwear and sure-footedness required.

    If you walk up the Wolfsschlucht, you will inevitably pass the basalt columns

    Pleasant, easy tour with idyllic landscape. Almost all the time you walk along the small Kyll. The adventure trail with wind chime, Hörrohr and co. is also interesting for playful adults.The Hotel-Café-Restaurant Heidsmühle is the perfect starting point and stopover.
