      Important! Just follow the original track. Not the track that Komoot might recommend.Demanding and very promising adventure tour on the Wied with two adventure variants and a path share of approx. 60%!Difficulty level: hard
      Altitude difference: 700 m
      Duration: 7 hours
      First the exact description of the 2 variants:Variant 1 "Nature path at the Kotzdahl" no longer passable! As of October 2021.There is now a spectacular alternative to this in the form of a narrow ridge path!Very lonely and rarely used nature trails along a beautiful stream. The route is easy but partly only to be guessed at, especially in the middle section, and there are a few tree trunks on the route that have to be climbed over. Highly recommended for scouts and nature lovers. If you value well-developed hiking trails, you should choose the bypass here (see pictures).Variant 2 "Anxbacher Höhenweg"A very adventurous ridge path criss-crossed with rocks with 2-3 smaller climbing passages. The path is marked with blue dots on the trees and is sometimes very difficult to see due to the few inspections. Already the entrance requires good orientation, since the first blue points start relatively high up in the forest and you thus complete the initial section after the main road without a path. Once you have found the blue dots, you will soon see the mountain path, which from now on always moves along the edge of the ridge. In the middle section, however, he loses himself again for 1-2 minutes in the pathless terrain. It is best to stay in the middle of the ridge and keep an eye out for the blue dots. I personally advise against this variant in autumn and winter (after the leaves have fallen). In the back part there are 2-3 rock climbing passages that can possibly be bypassed. You should plan about 1 hour for the entire variant due to the demanding orientation and the sporting aspect. A real adventure for lowland alpinists, for all pleasure hikers the bypass (see pictures) on wide hiking trails through a brook valley is the better alternative.Entire hikeRegardless of the two variants, this circular route is a real dream path and always inspires with many views, an exciting and varied route and a wonderful stop shortly before the finale on the Wied. Many steep ascents and descents have to be mastered and even climbing the Roßbacher Häubchen at the beginning of the tour is a little hiking experience in itself. From time to time Wiedweg and Westerwaldsteig are also taken into account. The requirements for this already long hike are therefore more of a sporty nature. 700 hm over 19km in connection with difficult stretches leave no doubt. The nice stop at the Wied at kilometer 16 is just right. You should really use this to be able to fully enjoy the dream passage on the Wied back to Roßbach. In the summer months there is also the opportunity to stop off at the campsite at kilometer 11. By the way, if you avoid both variants, you save about 3km and 100hm. Nevertheless, you shouldn't miss it. We wish all hikers a great adventurous day on the Wied!Safety instructions:On the Roßbacher Häubchen and on the Anxbacher Höhenweg (variant 2) there is a risk of falling. Smaller climbing passages in the 1 degree have to be mastered.Some extremely steep rocky descents that require a high degree of surefootedness.Without GPS, some sections are almost impossible to walk because finding the way and finding your way there is challenging.Shortly before stopping in Arnsau, follow the L255 for about 200 meters without a sidewalk!

      Important! Just follow the original track. Not the track Komoot may recommend.Curved hills, green meadows, beautiful mixed forests and remote valleys with babbling brooks are characteristic of the Bergisches Land.Difficulty level: medium
      Elevation gain: 290 m
      Duration: 4 hours
      Small villages with idyllic alleys, half-timbered houses and slate houses complete the picturesque picture. What could be nicer than exploring this landscape on paths on foot? That's why it was important for us to get even more out of this great region. In addition to our adventure tours, climbing tours and summit tours in the entire Eifel, in the Moselle valley, in the Westerwald, in the Rhineland as well as in Belgium and the Netherlands, it was important for us to explore the idyllic beauties of the Bergisches Land. In addition to our path-rich tours in Neunkirchen-Seelscheid, Radevormwald and Schwelm, a new creation followed today in Bergisch Gladbach. A great short, crisp, path-rich tour that I would especially like to bring to families with children. Great meadow paths, stream crossings, past farms, high into the woods over paths on the slope, and a varied, exciting route make this tour something very special. The path share is a good 60%. The tour ends with a great stop at the industrial museum "Alte Dombach".We wish you a lot of fun hiking and, above all, the best weather!

      A beautiful and varied tour on wild and romantic paths. The path share is almost 80%! Sometimes with a great view over the Lahn, sometimes shady in the jungle-like forest, or along beautiful grain fields. There is something for everyone. A hiking tour as it should be: panoramic, enjoyable and close to nature! History and nature are close together here. Particularly exciting are the ever new perspectives into the Lahn valley from the wonderful paths high up on the steep slopes. The different views of Runkel Castle are very impressive. In the cafes and restaurants, care is taken to ensure that culinary delights do not fall by the wayside. A visit to the castle is definitely worth it. You will be rewarded with a breathtaking foresight!Note: After crossing the second bridge that leads to Runkel Castle, we recommend leaving the track to the left. There is an ice cream parlor there, which we would like to recommend. A really great stop. It should also be noted that the track only leads past the castle. We recommend a detour of about 300m straight ahead to pay a visit to Runkel Castle. It's worth the visit, I promise! For this, however, the 3G rule comes into force. (Vaccinated, recovered, tested). The entrance fee is 5 €. The view from the castle tower should not be missed.We wish you a lot of fun hiking and of course the best weather!Greetings, Team Mr. Paths

      Important! Just follow the original track. Not the track Komoot may recommend.Demanding, adventurous circular hike right on the border with a unique path share of 90%!Difficulty level: difficult
      Elevation gain: 250 m
      Duration: 5 hours
      The start is at a small forest car park in Moresnet Chapelle. In order to be able to really enjoy the four unforgettable vantage points, it starts counter-clockwise towards the south, initially relatively unspectacularly on a wide path. But already after about 400 meters we plunge left into what feels like an endless dream path, which first leads us through the various tree populations of this beautiful hilly landscape of the Voreifel. Now, in addition to two smaller stream crossings, many beautiful views of the Belgian mountain landscape await us. In between we have to climb a steep slope. But a little later we are rewarded with a unique path through a mountainous Venn landscape. The last 4km can then be described as the highlight of the hike. Technically demanding, adventurous paths that without the necessary surefootedness are more likely to be a challenge than a pleasure. So be warned: The 14km are not a walk through the forest and are therefore more suitable for conditioned and sporty hikers. All in all, the whole thing will remain in positive memories for a very long time. Unfortunately, it is not possible to stop for a break on the hike itself. However, about 100 meters on the way back from the parking lot at the first intersection there is a small Belgian cafe with a great selection of cakes.Safety instructions:Caution: A path leads over an unsecured level crossing!High demands on surefootedness, especially towards the end!

      Important! Just follow the original track. Not the track Komoot may recommend.Unique wilderness tour in the Belgian Ardennes with a path share of 75%, lots of water and, above all, solitude as far as the eye can see. At the start and end of the hike there is a brewery well worth seeing with excellent beers and a great stop at a trout pond.Difficulty level: medium
      Elevation gain: 250 m
      Duration: 5 hours
      Wilderness Trail in Belgian that is the motto of this tour. It all starts in the small, idyllic village of Achouffe, where a little garden gnome encourages us to drink beer. But we should stay sober for the time being, because the adventurous 13.5 km round tour through the "Valley of the Fairies" can be classified as very demanding despite the only moderate degree of difficulty. The tour is divided into a total of three adventure sections, which I would now like to go into individually.Section 1 "Martin Moulin"Early in the morning a small, narrow path along the "Martin Moulin" river leads us uphill into the valley of the fairies. An overall very adventurous path with one or the other small climbing passage. Most of the time you are completely alone and if you start early enough you are guaranteed not to meet anyone. After rainy days, however, most of the passages are flooded and some of them are inaccessible. Therefore, because of this section, you should make sure that it has not rained 2-3 days beforehand. At the end of this section we come to a steep slope with a bench. This bench serves as an excellent breakfast option to strengthen yourself for the further course.Section 2 "Vallee des Feen"After crossing a small hill and following the mountain path down the valley, the highlight of the tour awaits. A narrow, barely visible path leads us to the right into the endless wilderness of the Belgian Ardennes. We walk through a partially jungle-like scenario adorned with rocks and extraordinary plant species. The route is consistently demanding and exciting, sometimes hardly visible and requires a good sense of direction. It should not be possible to experience something similar or the same anywhere else. This section has an absolutely unique selling point and for me is generally one of the most beautiful sections of the path. It is difficult to describe this passage with words at all, so you just have to experience it yourself.Danger! Right at the end there is a tricky climbing passage waiting for you to descend.Section 3 "Martin Moulin Part 2"After the adventurous second part, a relaxed farm road leads us to a hill with wonderful views of the Belgian Ardennes. Via a meadow path we now reach the village of Wibrin, where we can take a short break in a cafe. A well-developed hiking trail leads us across cow meadows back into the wild valley of rocks and rivers. Now it is often up and downhill on adventurous narrow paths, which from time to time also offer a beautiful view. A rocky path leads us back down into the "Martin Moulin" stream valley, where we follow a wild and rooty river path one last time until we can finally see the red cap of the garden path from afar, which will give us a delicious freshly brewed beer in a few minutes will serve.A great, wild and unique experience is coming to an end, and for every hiker from Germany the definitely longer journey home is now on the program. Nevertheless, nobody should be put off by it. The journey is definitely worth it! Promised!Safety instructions:The three wilderness sections are partly impassable or extremely wet after heavy rainfall.A very high degree of surefootedness is also necessary in dry conditions.In the 2nd section (the wildest) you have to climb 1-2 times.Danger! Route in the 2nd section (Vallee des Feen) very heavily overgrown in summer. Good orientation necessary. Always watch out for your GPS and follow the river. The path is partially no longer recognizable in 2-3 places.

      Important! Just follow the original track. Not the track Komoot may recommend.80 meter high rock walls, caves, grottos, palaces and castles. All of this can be marveled at on this varied adventure trail. The whole thing is peppered with a very high path share of almost 70%, some fantastic and unknown viewpoints, as well as 2-3 small climbing passages.A real adventure by Belgian / Dutch standards that awaits the hiker here.A real insider tip due to the unknown!Difficulty level: difficult
      Elevation gain: 350 m
      Duration: 6 hours
      The hike begins directly with a walk around the castle and a little later dives into the landscape in the south of Maastricht, criss-crossed with paths. As a small first stopover, the castle "Chateau Neercanne" suddenly appears on the horizon. Here you can even enjoy hiking and maybe even enjoy a cup of coffee in the castle inn. Then we hike on very narrow paths along the cow pastures on the outer edge of Kanne down to the Alber Canal. Now it will be exciting and adventurous. Shortly before the start of the imposing rock face, a relatively hidden path goes up the steep slope to the left. On this we reach the rock ridge, which we follow from now on, partially insured. (Please note the safety instructions!)If that is too risky for you, or if you cannot cope with the overgrown path along the cliff face, which is sometimes difficult to see, please walk about 20 meters further up the well-developed hiking trail along the edge of the field. However, you should think twice about it, because grandiose views and spectacular deep views await you on the cliff path. If you choose the leisurely path above, you should definitely not miss the 2 branches towards the cliff! Above all, the last one in the lowest point cannot be surpassed in terms of beauty.Once you have left this exciting passage behind you, you can start your next adventure straight away. The forest section, which is similar at least in midsummer jungle, is hiked through on stony and sometimes steep paths. Here we come across caves and grottoes that can be found hidden along the way. (Pay attention to the safety instructions!) The entire atmosphere of this approx. 1 hour passage, supported by the loneliness on site, almost seems a bit creepy and reminds you more of an expedition than a hike.Then it goes relatively comfortably down to the Maas. You cross a factory site and a little later you get back to the hiking area. Here you have the opportunity to stop for a break. After refreshment, we go briefly into the forest for the last time. On the final 2 kilometers we hike over sloping meadow paths with beautiful views of Maastricht and the surrounding area, until we finally reach the car park. If you haven't found a suitable stop here, you can make up for it now, because here, too, a great inn is waiting for the now tired hiker.It should be noted that this tour is by no means a walk and requires a certain degree of surefootedness and stamina.A somewhat different hike, which can confidently join my personal "Hall of Fame" and which will remain unforgettable for a long time.I hope you enjoy exploring.Safety instructions:Caution!Acute risk of falling along the cliff on the Alber Canal! Especially dangerous with children. For some views it doesn't hurt to have a head for heights (it goes 80 meters vertically into the depth)The hidden caves / grotto systems, some of which are accessible, should only be explored from the outside, as there is a risk of getting lost inside. The pitch-dark corridors lead like a labyrinth through the mountain for many kilometers.

      Important! Just follow the original track. Not the track Komoot may recommend.Very adventurous circular hiking trail along the Wupper slopes, which on the one hand shines with its very long path share of 60% (almost in one piece!), But also has many highlights in the area close to the city on the other. This guarantees variety and a full half-day program.Difficulty level: medium
      Altitude difference: 100hm
      Duration: 4 hours
      From the starting point at the quarry, it first goes clockwise east to the entrance of the sculpture park. A short free detour is definitely worthwhile here, because there is a beautifully designed park to marvel at, as well as a walk-in cave. After we have reached the hill on Neuenkamp, after a short road crossing, the endless hiking path begins, which we follow partly over meadows, through forests or along rocky edges down to the Wupper. There we hike on still official paths, steeply along the slopes above the Wupper. The most exciting part of the hike begins at the south-west turning point. Here we leave the signposted path and turn right into the bushes towards Wupper. In summer the path is difficult to see because it is very overgrown and therefore requires a little sense of direction and a thirst for adventure (see photos). But the jungle-like atmosphere and the lonely silence of this dream passage, which cannot be found on any hiking map, makes every hiker's heart beat faster and relatively often tempts you to take a great photo of nature or take a short rest directly at the adjacent stream bed. In the further course of this secret path, we cross another castle rampart and after a route heavily overgrown with ferns, we come back to the civilization of Leichlingen. Here, after crossing the Wupper again, you can stop off at Cafe Kränzchen. Exceptional coffee specialties and a selection of home-baked cakes await the trailblazer here, which can be enjoyed on the beautiful outdoor terrace, especially in summer. The further way ends afterwards, along the Wupper, on again better developed paths. Shortly before reaching the parking lot, the hiker can round off the day with a round of mini golf. The tour is a great half-day program and, due to its short length, can also be done well with children. I hope you enjoy hiking afterwards.Safety instructions:Sturdy shoes! In summer long trousers because of the heavily overgrown path along the Wupper.

      Important! Just follow the original track. Not the track Komoot may recommend.Adventurous and at the same time fairytale-like continuation in the Wiedtal with a path share of 70%, wonderful views and many exciting ridge traverses around Niederbreitbach.Difficulty level: difficult
      Altitude difference: 600 m
      Duration: 5 hours 30
      The Wiedtal also offers enough potential with endless and sometimes rocky path passages to create further adventure tours. So it was time for a new Mr. Pfade loop in this wonderful and dreamy region. Somewhat awkwardly located, but nevertheless deliberately chosen, the starting point is far away from any hustle and bustle in a side valley away from Niederbreitbach. If you park your car here early in the morning next to the small chapel between the high peaks of the Fockenbach Valley, you will immediately feel like immersing yourself in the nature on offer.Adventure section "Fockenbachtal"After a beautiful passage through the meadows, it goes straight to the nitty-gritty. A hidden path, which is initially still clearly visible, leads over a rocky ridge with a view of the Neuerburg including the pompous rocky porch. Sure-footedness is required here! The exciting ridge leads us deep into the Bachtal until we can finally take our first short rest at a refuge. What now follows is probably the steepest and longest ascent of all Mr. Pfade tours. At first, a narrow path leads leisurely up the slope. After just a few minutes, it becomes so steep that you want hiking sticks to support you. Especially in the upper area, the path becomes rocky and demanding. Once at the top, however, you should only take a short break, as one of the most beautiful resting places in the whole of the Wiedtal is waiting for us a few hundred meters further. Here you can take a well-deserved breakfast break with plenty of sunshine. We continue on beautiful meadow paths up to the Clausberg, where the next views of Niederbreitbach are already waiting. Especially on the descent, there are beautiful rest benches with great views of the valley. After the campsite, we briefly follow the Wiedweg, which at this point leads as a path along a stream. Behind the not so beautiful main road, however, comes one of the highlights of the tour!Adventure section "Wiedaue and climbing path"It goes over a barely visible path, directly at the edge of the Wied, over a beautiful meadow with great photo motifs on the other side of the bank. Then you have to be careful not to miss the climbing path if you trust it. Hikers who are not sure-footed continue to follow the cycle path and turn left into the small lane just behind the rocky promontory, where a little later a small path also leads up to the ridge. All the others climb behind a bush on a path that is actually quite clearly visible (see also pictures in the gallery) up the ridge. On the climbing path itself, after an initial left bend, you should orientate yourself further to the right in order to arrive safely at the top. From here a long ridge leads over the edge with great views again and again, until we finally reach the campsite. After the beautiful crossing of the Wied, the Wiedweg accompanies us again on narrow paths up the slope. At the end of this strenuous ascent, the next great resting place with a fantastic view of the Wiedtal is waiting for us. In the next hour, many little unknown paths meander along the mountain until we arrive at the second highest point of the tour in the small village of Wolfenacker. Here a short but unavoidable stretch of road interrupts the idyll.To find a conciliatory end, an adventurous ridge path leads back to Niederbreitbach with intermittent views and releases us from this hiking experience on a relaxed but beautiful stream path!Safety instructions:Demanding and in places technical path over a ridge down to the refuge.The following extremely steep rock path on the ascent requires good surefootedness and pronounced lower leg muscles!Adventure section Felsengrat an der Wied (campsite)!After the enchanted meadow section along the Wied, there is a steep and hidden climbing path next to the bike path up to the Felsengart. If it is wet, it is better to choose the bypass around the outside! It has to be climbed briefly with hands and feet!

    1. Mr. Pfade

      Wichtig! Nur dem original Track folgen. Nicht dem Track, den Komoot ggf. empfiehlt.Bereit für ein großes Abenteuer? Bizzare Felsenwege, steile Klippenpfade, Höhlendurchquerungen, Dschungelabschnitte, wilde Flusspfade und Kletterpassagen lassen das Wanderherz höher schlagen. Verfeinert wird das Ganze mit einem Pfadanteil von 60%, sowie der ein oder anderen Traumaussicht. Im Mittelpunkt das romatische und rustikale Dorf "Comblain au Pont" mit kleiner Burg. Ein Wandertag den man sicher nicht so schnell vergessen wird!Schwierigkeitsgrad: schwer
      Höhenmeter: 400hm
      Dauer: 6 Stunden
      Die Tour gliedert sich in 4 Abschnitte auf, die ich gerne genauer eingehen möchte, damit man sich ein Bild davon machen kann, was einen hier genau erwartet.Abschnitt 1: Adventure of a Lifetime"Les Tartines" - So heißt das mit bizzaren Felsen durchzogene Gebiet in das wir kurz nach dem Start vordringen. Passendes Kartenmaterial? Fehlanzeige! Die gezeichnete Linie entspricht dem ungefähren Wegverlauf (ich hab mein Bestes gegeben), sodass der GPS Punkt wahrscheinlich nicht immer zu 100% richtig verläuft. Ein dunkler und matschiger Tunnel  leitet uns auf einen spannender Pfad entlang der Bahnlinie, der schon einiges an Trittsicherheit verlangt. Der Weiterweg geht in ein vertrocknetes Bachbett über, das kurze Zeit später mit einer relativ kniffligen (aber ungefährlichen) Kletterstelle, die sicherlich als technische Schlüsselpassage anzusehen ist, aufwartet (Sicherheitshinweise lesen). Nach kurzer Verschnaufpause auf einer Weide geht es erneut in die Felsenwelt. Nachdem wir eine kleine Aussichtsplattform erreicht haben, müssen wir im weiteren Verlauf aufpassen den Abzweig nach links nicht zu verpassen. Es folgt ein Pfad der durch einen gelben Punkt makiert ist (meist auf Felsen gemalt). Dieser führt uns durch diverse Steinformationen und endet an einem unscheinbar wirkenden Loch in der Wand. Dies ist eine kurze Durchgangshöhle, oder besser gesagt eine Durchkriechhöhle (Sicherheitshinweise). Mit Rucksack geht hier gar nichts und kleinere Personen sind ebenfalls klar im Vorteil. Mit der richtigen Technik und ein wenig Ruhe ist der Durchschlupf aber schnell gemeißtert und ein großartiges Erlebnis nimmt sein stolzes Ende.Abschnitt 2: Die Höhle (NEU 2021!) und die Felsklippen von Comblain au PontDas Abenteuer geht weiter! Im zweiten Abschnitt erwartet uns zunächst einmal ein Baumkletterpfad bei dem das ein oder andere Mal Baumstämme geschickt umkurvt werden müssen. Weiter oben hält man sich möglichst rechts und landet auf einer Art Plattform mit mehreren Höhleneingängen. Die linke Höhle ist eine ca. 50 Meter lange  Durchgangshöhle, dessen Ausgang sich ebenfalls auf dem höherliegenden Wanderpfad befindet, auf den wir ohnehin zu Fuß stoßen werden. Alle Abenteurer mit entsprechender  Ausrüstung (Sicherheitshinweise!) dürfen sich auf eine relativ lange und spannende Höhlenbefahrung freuen. Alle anderen sollten besser dem kleinen steilen Pfad links neben dem Höhlenportal folgen und kommen so nach wenigen Metern automatisch zum Höhlenausgang. Nachdem wir auf der Hochfläche kurz durch ein gerodetes Waldgebiet müssen, geht es anschließend auf einem ausgesetzen und teilweise kühnen Pfad über die "Roches Noires". Auf der Wegstrecke verstecken sich viele traumhafte Aussichten. Kurz nach dem Abstieg aus der Felsenwelt betreten wir den Burgfriedhof von Comblain au Pont. Dessen Umrundung offenbart uns den wohl spektakulärsten Ausblick der Tour. Nach kurzer Stadtbesichtigung gehts zum ersten Mal runter an die Ourthe, an der wir relativ gemütlich in den 3 Abschnitt der Tour gelangen.Abschnitt 3: Längst vergessene PfadeUns erwarten zwei kräftige Anstiege in diesem Abschnitt. Der erste führt uns über einen in die Jahre gekommenen Geopfad mit sehr abenteuerlichem Wegverlauf und vielen alten Bergbaustollen am Wegesrand. Einige sind offen und begehbar (Sicherheitshinweis), andere durch ein Gitter oder eine Tür verschlossen. Im oberen Bereich gibt es mehere Aussichten und eine schöne Rastbank mit tollem Blick nach Comblain la Tour. Genau dort hin führt uns auch der nächste relativ versteckte Pfad den Berg hinab, bis wir an einer Schnellstraße, der N654, unsere volle Aufmersamkeit bündeln müssen (Sicherheitshinweise). Ziemlich genau 100 Meter müssen wir dieser Richtung Norden folgen bis wir an das Ortschild gelangen an dem es sehr schlecht sichtbar rechts hinunter auf den Wanderweg geht (siehe Bild). Nach kurzer Verschnaufpause an der Ourthe gehts am Osthang einen sehr stark bewachsenen aber wunderschönen Naturpfad hinauf. Der Einstieg in diesen ist ebenfalls nicht ganz so leicht zu finden. Die folgenden Ausblicke und der tolle Abstiegspfad über die Weide schließen diesen Abschnitt würdevoll ab.Abschnitt 4: Im Angesicht der OurtheOhne Höhenmeter geht es nun für etwa 3 km auf Pfaden am Fluss entlang. Dabei überschreiten wir eine riesige Kuhwiese und genießen zur Linken das Wasser und zur Rechten die Felsszenerie die sich im späteren Verlauf vor uns aufbaut. Ein sehr idyllischer, einsamer und entspannter Streckenabschnitt. Nachdem wir den kurzen Stadt-Ausläufer von Comblain au Pont passiert haben, erreichen wir schlussendlich den Parkplatz.Eine Wanderung die so viel Abenteuer zu bieten hat, findet man wohl nicht so häufig. Die Schwierigkeitsbewertung und die benötigte Zeit lassen keinen Zweifel aufkommen, dass wir hier eher eine anspruchsvoll sportliche Tour vorliegen haben. Auf zwei kleine Schönheitsfehler möchte ich bei all dem Perfektionismus jedoch trotzdem hinweisen. Da wäre einmal die relativ gefährliche Straßenquerung vor Comblain la Tour (die sich aber leider nicht umgehen lässt), sowie der ebenfalls daraus resultierende Verkehrslärm in manchen straßennahen Abschnitten der Tour. Der Rest ist dann aber "Hiking" auf aller höchstem Niveau. Mag sein, dass dieses Felsparadies nicht direkt hinter der deutschen Grenze liegt, was jedoch für viele die jetzt richtig Lust auf das Abenteuer haben keinesfalls ein Hinderniss sein sollte. Und nun sage ich viel Spaß beim Erkunden und Entdecken, beim kriechen und beim Klettern, und wünsche mir von allen Wanderern die sich die Zeit für dieses Abenteuer nehmen, auch noch ein wenig Zeit für ein kurzes Feedback!Sicherheitshinweise:Die wilde und 50 Meter lange Durchgangshöhle nach den umgestürzten Bäumen ist stellenweise eng und rutschig. Bitte nur betreten mit entsprechender Ausrüstung: Stirnlampe! Kein Handylicht! (mindestens Taschenlampe) Hose wird dreckig! Am Besten ohne Rucksack (kann am Höhlenausgang weiter oben abgestellt werden) Auch für Kinder in Begleitung eines Erwachsenen machbar, dann aber unbedingt einen Helm fürs Kind mitnehmen.  Die teilweise begehbaren Stollen im 3. Abschnitt der Tour sind labyrinthartig verzweigt. Ein Verirren ist nicht auszuschließen! Manche Einstiege unterliegen einem hohen Steinschlagrisiko!An manchen Stellen schwieriger, steiler teilweise ausgesetzter Pfadverlauf. Absturzgefahr auf den Klippen!Die 4 Meter hohe Kletterrampe könnte bei nassen Verhältnissen zum Problem werden! Im Zweifel umkehren und rechts umgehen. Hat man schwächere Geher in der Gruppe und will die Passage unbedingt machen hilft auch die Mitnahme eines ca 5-10 Meter Seils, dass man am Baum oberhalb der Wand befestigen kann.Kurz vor dem Ort Comblain la Tour gibt es eine sehr gefährliche Straßenüberquerung der N654 (ca 100Meter) ohne Gehweg!Für die kurze (ca. 3 Meter) jedoch enge Durchgangshöhle am Anfang der Tour ist keine Lampe und auch kein Helm nötig, dennoch lässt sie sich nur sehr umständlich umgehen. Man muss den Hangpfad wieder nach ganz oben zur Wiese und dem offiziellen RB11 Wanderweg Richtung Norden folgen!Tipp: Rucksack abziehen und durchschieben.Wer Angst oder Panik in engeren Räumlichkeiten hat, sollte besser direkt den oberen Weg wählen!Ausrüstung:Möglichst wasserfestes und stabiles Schuhwerk.Keine kurze Hose! Auch bei 30 Grad nicht.Taschenlampe für Höhlen und Stollen. Will man die lange Durchgangshöhle machen besser mit Stirnlampe, eventuell auch Helm. Gerade für Kinder! GPS Navigation über Handy oder GPS Gerät!Kleidung die schmutzig werden kann und auch wird!

      Important! Just follow the original track. Not the track Komoot may recommend.The hiking classic "Ehrbachklamm" as an extended adventure variant including the most exciting sections of the dream loop combined with many unknown paths (path share approx. 65%) and ridge traverses, which always offer wonderful views of the Hunsrück.Difficulty level: difficult
      Elevation gain: 550 m
      Duration: 6 hours
      The Ehrbachklamm is by far the most famous gorge in the Hunsrück and at the same time one of the most beautiful! This of course also attracts numerous hikers to the valley of the wild water. There is a lot going on here, especially on Sundays, thanks to the "Ehrbachklamm Traumschleife". Therefore, I strongly recommend an inspection during the week and if on Saturday, then please start before 8 a.m. if possible. In the deliberately planned main part of the gorge in the morning you are mostly alone and can take in the great impressions. In the summer months, the river passages turn into a primeval forest and provide the necessary cooling, especially on hot days. At the beginning, in the middle and at the end of the tour you only come across unknown and rarely used paths that are very adventurous at the beginning, especially at the ruins. The descent over the ridge into the gorge is very steep and rocky. In the ruin itself, you have the option of enjoying a 360 degree view of the entire Ehrbachklamm. For this, however, you need a head for heights, as you have to climb the narrow castle wall. The Mermuther Eck is an additional highlight outside of the Traumpfad passages. A steep rocky elevation coming directly from the gorge, which has to be climbed and climbed to about 200 meters. Here, the use of hands is also briefly necessary to move forward. Once at the top you have a gigantic view of the Ehrenburg including a nice, relaxing break. The end of the tour then runs quietly on mostly nature trails / paths through secluded creek valleys and serves more for relaxation, but also to process the overstimulation in the past hours, until the path finally widens and leads us back to the village of Mermuth. Truly one of the most impressive gorge adventures beyond the Hunsrück and actually a must for every hiking enthusiast. Even with children from 10 years of age who are experienced hikers, this is definitely feasible.
      Have fun and excitement on the tour with as little traffic as possible!
      Best regards, Team Mr. PathsSafety instructions:Partly easy climbing spots in and on the gorge as well as on Mermuther Eck and after the ruins.Some of the paths on the ridges are steep and exposed!The path at the paddock in the middle part of the tour can only be guessed at and partially poorly visible. Please pay attention to the GPS!The tour is only partially recommended for dogs! You may need this help.Definitely recommended for fit children!
