Hiking Highlight (Segment)
Erik went for a hike.
June 13, 2021
The starting point of the tour is a small public parking lot (P7) behind the "Zum Hirsch" inn. On the Olitätenweg it goes over the "Potsdamer Platz" to Obstfelderschmiede. Arrived at the valley station of the Oberweißbacher Bergbahn, it continues to the Glasbach in the valley of the Schwarza. This is where the ascent to Barigau begins. The Hädderbach meanders through the approx. 3km long valley up to the Barigauer Höhe. Not far from Barigau is the hill named after the place at 664m above sea level. From here you have a very nice view of the Rinnetal. A few meters further there is the Barigau Tower, which has unfortunately not been used for a long time. Between meadows and fields, we continue following the Olitätenweg down to Oberhain. Again, there are always beautiful views of the surrounding area. We leave Oberhain in the direction of Mankenbach. From here it goes back to wooded sections. Shortly after the "Friedensblick" refuge, the forest was so dense that I lost the right path for a moment. A single trail leads down to Neu-Leibis. Here we cross the Schwarza again and Unterweißbach is then not far.
