One-way hike from the Schornhecke car park to the Kreuzbergstraße bus stop in Ehrenberg-Melperts. Sturdy shoes are recommended, and at least one pole for a section. After approx. 10 km you can take a snack break on the Black Moor. At the end, the recorded route goes across a meadow (was not grazed at the moment), but circular route 4 should officially be used. Shortly before the end, the path hides a little - at the farm, do not run over the entrance to the farm, but over the small ditch (a dry transition is guaranteed).
You can get there via Gersfeld with the Hochrhönbus, back to Gersfeld from Melperts or Wüstensachsen with the RhönRadBus or line 37.

A short hike on the Elbow above Oberweid - also a good digestive walk after dinner in the Thuringian Rhönhaus. The starting point is the hiking car park between Eisenacher Haus and Rhönhaus. The path is marked with a yellow circle. At one junction, however, there is no marking: At the lookout point with the yellow fire salamander, do not follow the main path, but turn right at the electricity pylon. The pasture fences on the further route can be opened. At the top, a beautiful view of the Rhön is rewarding.

The starting point is either one of the two hiking car parks above Abtsroda (there is also a bus stop) or the small car park at the end of Enzianstrasse. The way there initially leads over a well-developed path that ends at a natural drainage channel. The ascent over the gully requires sturdy shoes and sticks, it is only recommended if it has been dry for a long time. Because of the nettles on the little-used path, suitable clothing should also be worn. Then it goes over a meadow back to the main path - with enough hunger for the Enzianhütte. Return via the main path (part of the Hochrhöner) to the parking lots. If you have parked up above or want to go to the bus, you can walk along Enzianstraße before the last ascent - without an incline, but with a few houses that still have the wooden clapboard cladding that was often found in the Rhön until 50 years ago.
