Another "Little Wäller", a nice walk through the Laubach Valley, would certainly not have let me break into storms of enthusiasm four weeks ago, but considering the circumstances, it was just right.The Little Waller still has the dwarf path logo (blue cap), not the red W!tourenplaner-rheinland-pfalz.de/s/XyLnP

Walking by numbers :-)Rhein-Zeitung from May 16, 2020 about the S8:
"Natural spectacle on the Singhofen circular hike: hidden waterfall is now accessible, viewpoint and rustic valleys on twelve kilometers:
The circular hiking trail S8 has a special attraction with the waterfall, which has now been opened for the first time. If you are looking for a place to stay with a beautiful view of Heidenpütz near Oberwies and the Mühlbachtal, then the Rabenlei, which is also on the route of the S8, is the place for you. From there it goes over the newly built footbridge over the Mühlbach and upstream over the Anton Funck footbridge to the refurbished refuge and shortly afterwards sharply left to Teufelsdell, waterfall and Kernbach valley ".With the revival of the S8, the local club Singhofen has made a big hit - a clear case of must-hike!Since my GPS was spinning and the recording is quite "original", the pictures are only roughly assigned afterwards.Original GPS track: ku-rz.de/s8wegParking: Norma, H.-W.-Schmitz-Straße 3, 56379 Singhofen, next to it is the Schäfer bakery (also open on Sundays and public holidays, the coffee is OK).

Walking by numbers :-)Maria recently reminded me of the Wied Valley / the Wiedhöhen with her tour komoot.de/tour/176283614?ref=wtd. I had the [N1] on the slip of paper for a long time, the (supposed) 500 m that scared me off, but in fact it is "only" almost 400 m. And they didn't notice (almost) - sometimes across meadows with views and panoramas until they waved, sometimes through fairly healthy deciduous / mixed forest, each a bit along the Wied and Fockenbach, mostly nature trails / paths, hardly any "forest roads" , Asphalt only in the village and around the courtyards.
I missed a detour to the castle (I've been there many times), but it is actually a must, it is really impressive (also from the outside, unfortunately it is not possible to visit). The other must, a detour to the viewpoint above Clemenshütte komoot.com/highlight/348914?ref=whd, I refrained from because of the hail (also the coffee pot was already empty).
When the weather is nice, the [N1] is definitely more fun - there were seasons today that I didn't even know.
My starting point was the parking lot at the entrance to Niederbreitbach (free of charge), because I wanted to have the piece along the road and through the town (there are currently no waffles anyway) behind me and in the end I would like to "roll it out".
The path is marked throughout (marking differs in two places from the original track out.ac/Xy3Er); but you have to be able to count to 5 and know the alphabet ;-) because the N1 always crosses the other N-ways as well as the D1 and the K2 (plus Wied- and Klosterweg).

Forest bathing with a distant view (and endless clear-cut areas).I don't know if the Wolfskirchhof (on the L329, 56412 Niederelbert) is still a parking lot for hikers. In any case, it is still listed on the local hiking map (in addition to many no longer existing hiking trails). In any case, I didn't get any nodules :-)

Warum in die Ferne schweifen, wenn der Westerwald liegt so nah? ;-)
