    Your path leads you into the wild and romantic Cascade Gorge near Sandberg. Here the Feldbach makes its way through the sandstone gorge, forming several steps in the course of the stream. It starts at the Schornhecke parking lot. After a few meters and a short ascent, you will already reach the first highlight - the wonderful heather landscape of the chimney hedge.We continue to the Red Moor, which has a wonderful moor lake. Here you can plan a few minutes for a rest, because the landscape can have an even better effect on you. You will explore the moor in the further course on a very well laid out moor path. In this way you protect the unique nature of the moor and don't sink into the mud on top.A little later, a wooden observation tower from which you can see the Heidelstein guarantees you a fantastic view. At this point it is worth taking a look in your backpack again - what else does your provisions provide for a cozy snack? A chocolate bar! Enjoy it for you. Now it goes deep down into the Cascade Gorge. You walk through this great landscape over stairs and on narrow paths. In a long loop you take the Wasserkuppe, the highest mountain in Hesse, with you until you start your way back.
