Hiking Highlight (Segment)
Stefan went for a hike.
February 20, 2021
Last weekend I walked another section of the Eulenkopfweg, reversing the hiking direction from the original plan. Starting at the Schöller hiking car park, you walk along the still actively managed Osterholz pit, and then you get to the beautiful Osterholz forest. You can find many traces of activists and forest conservationists here, but I haven't seen anyone at the moment. In an arc it then goes over the Holthausener Heide towards Vohwinkel, and past the Simonshöfchen prison through a piece of forest that is very muddy at this time of the year. But no problem with the right shoes 😉. The path then leads in a large curve towards the B7. At this point, I advise families to follow the route described, here the children will find a playground and a wildlife enclosure. All others follow the trail markers. Then it goes to the closed pit 7, which is now a renaturation project. You continue down towards Düssel, which you follow for a while. There are many great sections here that children in particular should have fun with. At the end it goes uphill again to Gut Schöller and the starting point of the hike.
