    The historical border between the Duchy of Pfalz-Zweibrücken and the powerful archbishopric and spa state of Trier divided the population into Protestants and Catholics until the middle of the 18th century. A time when many smugglers were active in the forests and transported goods across the border on narrow paths. On this 13-kilometer hike you are on these once hidden paths and roam the dense forests. Magnificent views are still not neglected - and fortunately you can enjoy them carefree these days.The smuggler path starts at the Schützenhaus a little north of Hofeld-Mauschbach. Along your hike you will pass several boundary stones that mark the former course of the border between "S" (Saar area) and "D" (German Empire). Look forward to an adventurous hiking trail and beautiful views over pretty villages and rolling hills.
