      It is now the beginning of the 2021 mega march season. After the first section on the Heidschnuckenweg last summer in the summer, another adventure was on the agenda on the stages from Undeloh to Soltau. The weather was fresh at -3 ° C, but dry and mostly not too windy.
      It started at the St. Magdalenen Church in Undeloh, past the Cafe Schnuckenstop and into the heath. Following the white H on a black background, it went through the snow-covered heathland, past beehive stalls, sheep stalls and snow-covered villages. Unfortunately, the paths were mostly borderline to say the least, due to the ice and the deep tracks, but sometimes also very beautiful.
      The start is made in the truest sense of the word, the next hikes will follow :).

      The weather report promised sunshine and plus degrees, so let's explore Königslutter and the northern Elm. Exciting quarries with the famous Muschelkalk and untouched beech forests could be discovered and the summit at 323.3 m above sea level could not be missing.
      Unfortunately, most of the trails didn't promise what the weather did or what I expected. Many roads were so broken by the rain and the heavy equipment for harvesting and transporting wood that I sometimes skidded through mud over long distances; in places rather sideways and backwards
      It was nice anyway ...
      Conclusion 1: The Elm has beautiful (muddy) paths that are best enjoyed in summer.
      Conclusion 2: Thinly drawn paths are to be enjoyed with caution at Komoot, especially in the wet season
      Conclusion 3: The hiking season for this year is over, at least on unpaved roads

      Use the nice weather again and head back to the Harz Mountains. This time it should be a tour around Werningerrode. Parked at the university and into the woods. In addition to the lane, a small single trail runs to the former Himmelpforte monastery, which is wonderful for hiking. We continued over the mountains and valley (yes, a few meters in altitude were also possible) through a wall that was still beautifully autumnal. In between, rock formations like the silver wall could be discovered again and again. In the middle then a Lost Place, the old quarry at the Kleiner Birkenkopf. Interesting place with so many things to discover, unfortunately also quite full of trash.
      The path to the Steinerne Renne was an absolute highlight. Sometimes very slippery and demanding, but beautiful.
      The further way to the Gasthaus Steinerne Renne was very difficult through the stones and the nice slope, but worth the goal. From the inn the traffic increased significantly, everyone wanted to go to the Ottofelsen. Already imposing, but totally overcrowded in such wonderful weather.
      We continued in the direction of Drei Annen. At the Bahnparallelweg I hoped to be able to take at least one photo of the Harz narrow-gauge railway. Unfortunately, I wasn't allowed to, as there was only one train and at the time I was too far away for a photo. Nevertheless, a great path with many small highlights, such as tunnels, the Thumkuhlenkopf loading station, the old mine shaft, which now serves as a bat hotel, much more and of course the Steinerne Renne stop.
      Unfortunately, some supposed good paths were barely available (or Komoot a little "off" due to the bad reception) and so overgrown that walking between blackberry tendrils and wild boar tracks or due to the deep furrows caused by the timber transport was very tedious. Nevertheless a great tour.

      Fantastic! A great performance and an interesting tour with beautiful autumnal resin impressions, even if the dead trees hit the mind 🌲 I'm excited about the next route! 😉

      The sky was slightly overcast, the weather forecast was ok, so let's conquer the Harz and Brocken and follow the Ecker on not so frequented paths.
      It started at the large car park in Bad Harzburg (25 cents per 30 minutes and even a toilet), then with a good ascent through beautiful beech forests up to the Etterklippe and further on good paths to the Molkenhaus, along the Hasselbach to the Ecker. There then a short detour to the Käsewieter bridge. A nice detour not only because of the bridge and the Ecker, but also because of the discovery of the two fire salamanders.
      Along the rushing and babbling Ecker to the Eckertalsperre, part of German-German history.
      In front of the Scharfenstein, then quickly inspect the foundation walls of the old sheepfold and then look for the way to the Scharfenstein. Wer Weg is behind the ranger station and begins as a small forest path. After a few hundred meters, it turns into a demanding path with many tree roots and rocks that require surefootedness. Then there are 60 steps and on over hill and dale until you have climbed the Scharfenstein and are rewarded with a beautiful view.
      Punctually with the start of the Grenzweg (not to be missed through the concrete blocks), which is also the Goetheweg, the sky closed and it began to drizzle and rain. So we started to climb the Brocken step by step with a steady slope (> 20%). At around 750 meters in altitude, there was a short break at the Hermannsklippe to catch a breath for the next 400 meters.
      The Brocken itself was shrouded in fog / clouds and overcrowded by hundreds of visitors.
      After I left the "Brockenautobahn" in the direction of Eckersprung, it was luckily much quieter again. The path along the Ecker is very difficult for the first 500m. Very muddy, deep and very difficult to walk with rocks and tree roots But you can wonderfully walk along the babbling Ecker and enjoy the peace and quiet and great views. Halfway down the Ecker you could previously follow the wider path to the right of the Ecker, and then after about 200 m follow a narrow trail that leads to the Ecker crossing the thick stones, but this path has now been closed to protect nature and animals.
      So stay on the left of the Ecker to the hut by the SkiClub memorial and then on the right the path through the spruce trees to the so-called Pionierweg (which was laid out around 1900 by the Magdeburg Pioneer Battalion No. 4 (traces can still be found in the rocks) Then the beautiful weir with which the inflow to the Eckertalsperre is regulated. Then we went on farm roads to the Wellenborn, which was cleared due to the drought and bark beetles and now gradually reforested (many thanks to the tireless forest workers) to the Radau Radau then back to Bad Harzburg.
      A great day trip with beautiful autumn impressions, but also partly slippery and very demanding trails.

      The hike to Muno lake and the Örtzequell region (not directly the source) is part of the Fischeweges (erlebniswelt-lueneburger-heide.de/de/touren/detail/58aabfd3975aae46e0a3c538), on which you can explore the Örtze around Munster .
      The Örtze spring itself is in the restricted area, after a short time it flows through the artificially created Muno lakes to intercept turbidity and sediments that are washed away from the armored training areas with little vegetation during heavy rain.
      The starting point for me was the small parking lot at the end of the path "An der Pflasterbahn" in Breloh. On the one hand, you can also find the overview plan of the paths and the "opening times" of the path through the exercise site headquarters. Please make sure that the barrier is open and the sign "Wanderweg frei" is visible before you enter the otherwise closed area.

      #we go further this time it was really a mega march. The Heidschnuckenweg is beautiful, but a real challenge for such a route and with the temperatures, especially since there are few places to drink. So my head won and decided to finish the rest in the evening instead 🏃‍♂️.
