    Understand forestAisles on forest slopes, fords through rivers: Hike through the cultural landscape in the Franconian Forest Nature Park and read the traces of its history! How did people live from and with the forest? Understanding grows step by step: people change their environment and the environment changes people.We have one thing in abundance: forest. But what to do when it is almost inaccessible to humans? What if the felling and recycling of the trees is hardly possible? Who can stay on steep slopes and make a living here? Exactly: the goats! Our hiking trail "Around the Gaaßleitn" leads you along the slopes, partly on natural paths that were once formed by the hooves of the Gaaßn.The goat was part of the meager life in the Franconian Forest - well into the 20th century! The "little man's cow" provided milk, meat and leather, did not need much space and found its own food: grass, leaves, bushes. If necessary, also on difficult to access slopes, the Gaaßleitn.Wood processing, laborious agriculture, what did the people of Wartenfels still live on? They made dappen: simple shoes for household use. And they had good ideas: In 1908 Johann Beetz invented the flycatcher, which still goes from here all over the world. The inhabitants of the Franconian Forest have learned one thing: to make the best of the often very difficult conditions!
