Varied circular walk with impressive rock formations, caves, mixed forest passages and magnificent views - a nature experience of the highest class.If you are looking for a rendezvous with nature and want to escape the stress of everyday life, this is the place for you. In the middle of the Palatinate Forest Nature Park, the largest contiguous forest area in Germany, the rock trail, which is certified as "Qualitätsweg Wanderbares Deutschland", winds for about 45 km without significant inclines past countless, bizarre colorful sandstone formations around the locality of Rodalben.The clearly marked "F" circular route can also be hiked in stages, entries and exits are possible in several places. Rustic seating areas and cozy huts invite you to linger, rest and "let your mind wander". From the new hiking train station, you will pass the "Alte Bierkeller" and reach the "Old Castle" massif, which offers a first beautiful view. Hettersbachfelsen, Hornbergfelsen, Gypsy Rocks and Maibrunnenfelsen accompany the path of the hiker up to the Pulpit Rock, whose viewing platform offers an impressive panoramic view of the hilltop town. Past the pig rock, it goes through the Lindersbachtal up to Hilschberghaus. From here you can make a detour to Saufelsen or hike directly to the cow rock and put in the shelter of a rest.Afterwards you leave the Clauser valley and cross the stream of the Rodalbe to the Karl-May-Felsen. Further, the path meanders to the Bear Rock in the Langenbachtal, which encloses the largest natural red sandstone cave in the Palatinate and houses a spring with a waterfall - a natural temple of peace and relaxation. The culmination of the tour is the legendary Bruderfelsen, the landmark of the city.
