The Trödelsteinpfad leads you from Buchhellertal to the "Trödelstein". On the way you will experience the peculiarities of the basalt-like natural landscape between the Rothaargebirge and Westerwald. The tour starts at the hiking car park in Austraße in Wahlbach. From there you go into the forest and hike on a forest path along the babbling Buchheller.Later it goes to the ascent to the junk stones. In between you will meet contemporary witnesses of ore mining in the Buchhellertal: Stollenmunde and cinder residue are relics from the mining era. The summit cross on the junk stones greets you from afar. The view of the beautiful Siegerland is a great reward for your efforts.Then it goes downhill and you move in parts on the border between Rhineland-Palatinate and North Rhine-Westphalia. On the way you will reach the juniper heather in the Saukaute nature reserve. It is around 2.2 hectares in size and is used to maintain and restore endangered juniper heaths, grass lawns and near-natural stream sections.With a little luck you will also discover women's hair moss and swamp violets or the brown oak butterfly and the ducat butterfly. On narrow paths through beautiful forests you finally hike back to the starting point. Shortly before the end of your tour, the view of the unique landscape between the Rothaargebirge and Westerwald opens up to you.
