    With only 10 kilometers, the tenth stage is pleasingly short. So you have a perfect chance to explore the unique sandstone rocks above Rodalben in detail.The trail leads you along impressive rock formations. Here you pass the Saufelsen, the Rappenteichfelsen and the Rappenköpfe. Some of the rocks are completely surrounded by trees, others tower with their highest points from the canopy.If you can tear yourself away from the rocks and their gullies, furrows and peaks, the Pfälzer Waldpfad leads you through the Hohlbachtal at the Birkwieserhof in the direction of Merzalben. The Landgasthaus Birkwieserhof is also perfect for a relaxing break, before you continue the last short stretch to the stage destination.

    I can also recommend taking the train from Rodalben to Münchweiler and from there via the "yellow path" to Gräfenstein and then the forest path to Rodalben in the opposite direction. The other way around has the disadvantage that there is no inn around the Münchweiler train station waiting for the next train to Rodalben. So about 20 km feasible. Only the way through Merzalben is boring. But there is a place by the fountain under the apple tree in the middle.
