      Directions:
      - At the "airfield" of Pattonville we turn left at the roundabout on the bike path, direction RE-Aldingen
      - At the first opportunity we cross the L 1144 (right), be careful of traffic, cars can drive here at 70 km / h!)

      - it continues straight to the Neckar
      - At a bridge (here the "Holzbach" flows into the Neckar) we turn right
      - now it always goes straight, along the Neckar

      - here we turn left into "Arnoldstraße" and then left into "Baltenstraße"
      - turn right at the end of "Baltentraße" (we are again in "Arnoldstraße")
      - because of the traffic I avoid the intersection and walk a bit on the pedestrian path or across a square in the direction of the "district council house" on the "Mönchfeldstrasse"

      - At the end of the street I turn left into the "Weidenbrunnen" (watch out for traffic)
      - Because of the traffic and the uphill climb, I walked a bit on the pedestrian path
      - at the next possible opportunity I crossed the street on the right and followed the dirt road
      - from here the paths become "worse" or there are no longer asphalt paths, but gravel paths or meadow paths / field paths (please note!)
      - now we always go straight
      - and finally reach the paved road to the "Sonnenhof"
      - here we turn left and drive past the "Sonnenhof"
      - shortly after the Sonnenhof we continue straight on a graveled dirt road and reach a nice rest area with seating under a beautiful oak
      - At the oak tree, we turn left and then right again

      - Awarded the identifier "B3" by the Odenwaldklub as a quality trail "Wanderbare Odenwald"
      - Marking very well
      - Forest paths, forest paths, gravel paths and asphalt roads alternate
      - There are numerous benches / rest areas along the entire route that invite you to linger
      - Nature-loving hike through Beerfelder Land
      - for hikers who want to enjoy nature and landscape
      Directions:
      - at the parking lot "Olfener Höhe" we cross the L3120 and follow the marking "B3"
      - it continues on a forest path through the forest
      - At first we mainly hike through forest and forest paths through the beautiful mixed forest
      - before Airlenbach we leave the forest and walk past meadows and paddocks
      - from here it continues on asphalt roads and you have a wonderful view of Airlenbach
      - then it goes downhill again through the forest towards the nature park parking lot "Dicke Eiche"
      Notes on the "thick oak"
      - The oak is also called "Siegfriedeiche"
      - it has been sung in a well-known folk song "There is a tree in the Odenwald" for generations and is said to have been personally planted by Siegfried (Nibelung legend)
      - This is of course not verifiable, but one is certain that the "thick oak of Airlenbach", although it is in a rather weak overall condition, is around 800 years old
      - from the "thick oak" it goes uphill on asphalt paths past the Airlenbach forest houses
      - On the way there is a sandstone shrine dedicated to "Saint Hedwig", the patron saint of Schleswig and Andechs
      - We reach the Airlenbach refuge, which invites you to rest
      - Via forest paths it continues (uphill) through the forest
      - above Airlenbach the path finally leads out of the forest
      - past meadows we follow the path at the edge of the forest
      - We reach a permanently installed bee site and finally reach a fallow deer enclosure via a gravel path.
      - shortly after the fallow deer enclosure it goes right into the forest and back to our starting point via a natural forest path
