The single trail from the Hauröder cliffs to the valley run towards Holungen is only suitable for mountain bikes because of the many roots and these days rather slippery passages. If that doesn't frighten you, you will be rewarded with some wonderful views of the northern Eichsfeld. What spoiled this tour for me a bit was the completely muddled, boggy forest road from km 17 (about 500m).
After 3 weeks without rain it may work, otherwise plan differently.

Our tour started in Kalteneber and led over the Dieteröder cliffs, Mackenrode with its beautiful church, over the Pfarrweg to Sickenberg. Past the Grenzlandmuseum, we went on to Bad Sooden Allendorf. After a long rest in the "Ahle Schinn" beer garden located directly on the Werra, we continued through the Werra valley, past Jestädt Castle and the Meinhardt lakes. Our next destination was the Heimatalm on the north bank of the Werratalsee. After a hearty snack, we were ready for the last part, which always led us slightly uphill over the old Schwebda-Heiligenstadt railway line to our destination Fürstenhagen. There in Willis Imbiss we ended the day with a cozy beer. Many thanks to Herbert for the excellent organization of this tour.
