The tour around the knot leads over 33 kilometers on well-developed farm and hiking trails through forests, past the picturesquely situated Krombach dam and the lake pond near Mengerskirchen. Experience the High Westerwald from its most typical side with wide, unobstructed views.From the starting point in Rennerod at the “Strohheck” hiking car park, the route takes the former railway line towards Rehe and the Krombachtalsperre on the border between Rhineland-Palatinate and Hesse. From Driedorf-Mademühlen the path meanders slightly uphill again, past the model airfield and some farms on the "Langmauer", the old Rhine road.Shortly after the long ascent, at the end of the forest, there is the opportunity to turn left to the Adolf-Weiss monument with a nice resting place. Now it goes past some wind turbines on to Mengerskirchen and the Seeweiher. There is a connection via the R8 cycle path to the Kerkerbachtal cycle and hiking path and on to the Lahn cycle path. You return to Rennerod via the villages of Elsoff, Mittelhofen and Westernohe.
