Today's stage 5 from Altenbrak to Thale is the final stage on the Harzer-Hexen-Stieg from Osterode to Thale.The theme of this stage is:"Bodetal Gorge"The route from Altenbrak first leads us over a beautiful path past the "Geological Insights" station with its steel picture frame to Treseburg. After we have roamed the tranquil village of Treseburg, we go up to the Sonnenklippe viewpoint.Only a few meters after the Sonnenklippe we pass through an archway and have reached it - the Bodeschlucht.The Bode Valley Gorge, the "Grand Canyon" of the Harz Mountains, is located in the Bode Valley between Treseburg and Thale. The Bodetal nature reserve is the deepest rock valley north of the Alps. Here, up to 250 meters high granite walls rise up to the left and right of the path.The hiking trail runs at different heights next to the Bode river bed - sometimes at its height, sometimes far above.This stage leading through the Bodetal, the Grand Canyon of the Harz, is definitely one of the most beautiful stages of the entire Harzer-Hexen-Stieg. The combination of forest bathing in intense green, bizarre rock formations with steep drops and the sometimes quiet splashing, sometimes wild rustling of the Bode enchants hikers.Those who, like us, fall into raptures and enjoyment on the tour should not be surprised if their tour time for the actually short hike goes through the roof and the speed crashes ... but that's not exactly what hiking is about: collecting wonderful impressions and enjoy the beauty of nature.

@Frank: Thank you very much. Yes, for me this stage is one of the absolute highlights on the Harzer-Hexen-Stieg ... or as a single tour. But then better start from Thale. From there you can also go up to the Hexentanzplatz and the Rosstrappe (on foot or by cable car).
