What a nice hike. I planned this tour last year and there were always nice additional building blocks.
I could actually recommend the tour. These two little off-grid pieces really bother me. The first time I just missed the densely overgrown path and followed the visible trail to a meadow. The second time everything went great, except for the last few meters, where you had to walk through 8 meters of bush. A path could still be seen here, but it was special due to 3-4 small conifers.
Apart from that. There were climbs, views, ruins and nice little towns. In addition, rural idyll and beautiful forest sections. Of course there were also some unsightly pieces of asphalt, but the prospects don't matter.
It was really a great tour, where I saw some game again. A worthy conclusion. Now the Volmetalbahn will not run until September.

Today's hike was finally accompanied. The third went over the local hills and to Blankenstein Castle. Since neither the weather was so nice today nor was the focus on photography, there were only a few pictures. The tour also had a corner that I did not know and which I am now very enthusiastic about. In another hike I will also introduce them in more detail. Finally, the rain sets in and Komoot out. It went to one of the friends in the city anyway and so it wasn't a round trip.

I was able to use the nice weather on this holiday for a nice hike. Start and finish was the Remscheid-Lüttringhausen train station, where I came from Wuppertal HBF with the S7 to complete my tour.
It was really a nice hike. Again and again wonderful paths alternated with broad sections. There were a lot of prospects in the beautiful rural surroundings and of course there was also a lot to discover on the horizon. The area has many small A-ways and it was a bit busy, but for such a beautiful holiday I found it to be quite manageable.
In the end, I deviated somewhat from my original route. As a result, there was a little more asphalt, but less altitude.
The weather was a bit too warm for me, but the load just barely went.
Actually, the tour was not planned as a round trip, but as a route to Schwelm, but because of the public transport connections on the holiday, I had to reschedule and this was really not a bad choice!

Demanding, but also super beautiful. This tour was a great hike. In the first place I have to give a big Danesxhön to Alex von Bühren! Without his mountain bike tours I would not have come to this corner of the Volmetal. It was absolutely worth it. Again and again the most beautiful views and challenging paths alternate ... if there hadn't been two downsides. So you walk a lot on asphalt and unfortunately you can't avoid Schalksmühle sensibly.
So it was an interesting mix anyway. The first climb reminded me more of the Hochsauerland. If no dog had bitten me there, I could have really enjoyed it. Luckily I was able to pull my leg back in front of “the does nothing, it only barks” and so it's just a light scratch.
Fortunately, the ASB was in Schalksmühle with an information stand and so I got a proper disinfection.
The tour was challenging and encouraging.

So finally no tour right on the doorstep, but a few hills further. A tour that I had planned in similar versions for a long time and that I could now implement. Numerous great hiking trails form the basis of this beautiful circular tour. Komoot ended the tour at the break and at the end. So not even any bad misfires. The weather was wonderful and the landscape played along.
In two places there were private paths that had to be avoided, but both alternatives went quite quickly and so it was a wonderful May hike.

Today's little hike was originally planned to be larger, but now I am very happy that I spontaneously decided differently. Although I know almost every path here, I haven't been to some corners for a long time. From the Sprockhövelerbachtal up to the Ruhrhöhenweg is such a corner. The changes between forest and openness, as well as in the flooring were very nice. Komoot was actually completely stable, only highlights I couldn't create at the moment ^^
The water from the sky is really urgently needed and the green is losing its strength again. But I'm still confident that we'll have a great May with more rain! ;-)

Wonderful weather, great air, green landscape and nice company! Heart, what do you want more?
This tour took me to a friend in Elfringhauser Switzerland. The goal was the view of the Immelberg. This hike was relaxed and we enjoyed the fresh wind, the tranquility of the landscape and the beauty of nature. Although a few meters of altitude were collected and Komoot also missed 3 times, on days like this, such things are not so important. ;-)

So let's start with the beautiful side of this tour. I walked this path almost exactly in 2017 and it is my own creation. Today the tour actually started at the usual forest entrance and again I liked some places particularly well. Plus the nice sculptures in the Wodantal. All in all a nicer little circular route, which has quite small more demanding sections.Unfortunately there is also a second part of this hike and it consists of Komoot or the bad GPS signal. I had to restart the tour several times before I could start it. There were a lot of mistakes and so the tour does not start where it should, but only after I finally got a constant signal. The way back in the same place was no problem for GPS.
Unnecessary nerves unfortunately cost me the constant control of the track today. I hope it gets better.

This tour really had its lengths (ascents and asphalt routes), but it was also very nice. There were always wonderful sections. Twice I deviated from my planning and really ran after the nose and neither was disappointed. Only then I had to shoulder the extra kilometers and in the end the provisions became too scarce. The weather was great and thanks to mutual respect, it was always very good even with the right distance. A few hotspots could not be circulated, but due to the decent pace I was able to keep the distances well there. Now I'm looking forward to the strengthening at home.

This hike was again very nice and had a lot of great variety. She also didn't have a lot of altitude difference and somewhere on the track, my condition stayed. An increase in the meadow on the Neanderlandsteig took my grains and afterwards it got really tough. In the end the food was used up and the cell phone battery ran out.
Komoot of course annoyed me twice with dropouts and now again with the incorrect highlight creation.
Otherwise it was a great tour on the doorstep.

Als Ergänzung zu meiner Facebookseite 'Entdecken und Wandern' gibt es hier meine Handyfotos zu sehen und den Track der jeweiligen Touren.
Da ich aus Hattingen (NRW) komme und Student bin, sind es vor allem Touren in der näheren Umgebung. Oft bin ich alleine unterwegs, hin und wieder mit Freunden. Ich entwickele fast alle meine Touren selber und lege oft viel wert auf einen hohen Wanderpfad-Anteil.
Ich bin immer offen für Anregungen oder auch Kritik und bin unter der guten alten E-Mail Adresse: Arda88@gmx.de zu erreichen.
Gleichwohl kann diese Adresse dazu genutzt werden um mit mir persönlich in Kontakt zu treten oder um Tipps zu besprechen! Mfg Thorben 😉
