    From Densberg today we go first south and then in a large arc to the north. The first kilometers lead you to the Hemberg ridge with the extensive forests.The Helenenquelle rises at the foot of the Hundskopf, a characteristic elevation of today's tour. This is where the Sondertal nature reserve begins with its rustic canyon forest. Since the forest is left to itself, it is already primeval forest-like in places and at the right time you will see rare butterflies here.A little further on, the Schönstein castle ruins are picturesquely situated on a mountain spur above the Gilsatal. In the shadow of the imposing ruin, it is more wonderful to rest and picnic. The route continues in a small arc on the northern edge of the Gilsa Valley, always with a view of the cultivated landscape to the south with its fields and meadows.Shortly before you head back into the forest, you will notice a magnificent giant tree. The several hundred years old oak is a registered natural monument and with its trunk circumference of more than eight meters an impressive contemporary witness.Now it goes further north to Battenhausen. The path leads on simple paths mainly through an extensive beech forest.Battenhausen, the destination of your today's stage, is the highest village in the Kellerwald. It lies below the Hohe Lohr - and there are actually winter sports here. But you can also enjoy your stay in this small and charming place without snow.
