Etappe 2: Von Wallensen nach Eschershausen – Ith-Hils-Weg
Hiking Highlight (Segment)
Renée planned a hike.
March 29, 2021
Today you can expect a varied hike between extraordinary cliffs and along picturesque meadow landscapes. After you have hiked back over the fields and made the first steep climb up to the ridge behind you, you are standing at the starting point where you left the Ith-Hils-Weg yesterday. After this steep climb, you definitely warmed up. The Hammerslust cliff, which you will reach soon after, is perfect for a long break, during which you can enjoy the view. The following section of the trail really has something special. The terrain slopes gently to your left. On the other hand, on your right there is one bizarre rock formation after the next and it is not uncommon for it to descend steeply just a few meters from the path. The path here is partly rocky and overgrown with roots and requires your attention, but on the whole it is easy to walk. With a little luck you can see some climbers on the rocks at the Lüerdissener Klippen. It is worthwhile to linger here and take small detours on the upper and lower cliff path to see the rocks from other perspectives. Behind Holzen-Ith the forest clears and you now walk along the Ithwiesen nature reserve, a picturesque hilly landscape with isolated trees. At the glider airfield you turn right and after a steep descent over 200 meters you reach Eschershausen, where you can stay in the Inkklex apartment. The next larger town with accommodation is Stadtoldendorf.
