      At 9 o'clock I started at -1 degrees and lots of sunshine. First, I climbed the steep and rather slippery path up to the Bismarck Tower. A lot was going on here. But the further ways were deserted. In between it was also difficult to access paths, as heavy forest machines have already felled a lot of pine trees. But most of the paths were beautiful, even if they were often muddy.
      I especially liked the valley of the Hasperbach, very great. At the Haspertalsperre it got full again. But the further way was again calm and very nice. The vertical meters demanded a lot from me.
      Because of the cold, the breaks were short and it only took me 6 hours.
      A great hike, thanks Niko for bringing us here.

      Actually, I prefer to stay at home in such bad weather, but today I had to get out before the blanket fell on my head.
      So I started at 9:30 am with a steadily falling drizzle.
      Past the Hammerteich and Hohenstein I stopped at the great wild boar enclosure.
      Three tiny rookies followed close behind their mother. Very beautiful.
      Then the hike took me up and down over muddy paths.
      Now and then on downhill trails.
      The paths were challenging due to the dampness and the sometimes impassable nature.
      Up to the Arenberg demanded the last of my reserves. From here the trails were easier.
      After 4.5 hours I was back at the parking lot.
      There are mostly narrow paths through beautiful, now autumnal forests.
      The hike was a lot of fun despite the fog and drizzle.

      Shortly after 9 a.m. I started at the still empty parking lot at Altenberg Cathedral.
      The weather was beautifully sunny and I was able to enjoy the great paths and the numerous views.
      Especially in the first half, I really liked the paths. After that it got a bit more asphalt-heavy, but the landscape was still wonderful.
      The monument route from Odenthal is very well marked, I only saw few monuments. 😄 In return, I enjoyed the trusting grazing animals. 🥰
      The closer I got to Odenthal, the fuller it got. Since I already know Odenthal, I left out the place, but it is recommended.
      Back at Altenberg Cathedral, it was so full that it jammed in the street. So home quickly 😆
      It took me a total of 5.5 hours for the beautiful lap.
      I would like to thank Niko warmly for drawing my attention to this round.
      A really recommendable hike. With asphalt stretches, but still very nice.

      At 9:30 a.m. I started at the still empty parking lot of the Müngstener Brückenpark.
      We went over great paths under the bridge to Burg Castle.
      The foggy atmosphere made me forget the cold and it was still pretty quiet in the morning. I had to climb over some trees on the paths off the main paths.
      From Schloss Burg it got really crowded, and the way back to Müngstener Brücke was marked by crowds of people who came towards me. Maybe I should have run the lap counterclockwise.
      It was a very nice hike that I really enjoyed.
      It took me 5 hours in total.

      After completing my compulsory elective early in the morning, I went straight to Iserlohn.
      Parked safely on the side of the road, I started at 9:45 a.m.
      The path climbed slowly and soon I arrived at the first single trail. A beautiful path through reed grass. Thanks to Komoot, I would not have come here without the tip.
      The further path became wider, but no less beautiful. Again and again there were great views.
      We passed the airfield over the glorious soaring. Here the view was breathtaking and the planes exciting.
      The way back led me over lonely paths through the forest.
      I enjoyed the time and finished it after a leisurely 5 hours.
      A great, varied round that I can only recommend.

      Actually we just wanted to take a walk through the wildlife park and then eat something ...
      We didn't take any pictures in the wildlife park because almost all the animals were hiding. The few deer were surrounded by clusters of people and stuffed full.
      Then we went to Grafengrün and had lunch there.
      During the subsequent hike around the racetrack and along the glider airfield, we saw more animals than in the park. 😂
      We ate a delicious dessert in the Waldgasthof Gut Wolfsaap
      Then it was back to the racetrack.
      We, that's my wife and me. Almost 10 km, my wife liked it a lot, but whether that's why she becomes a hiker ... 😗😆
      But it was a beautiful wedding day. 🥰

      A wonderful after-work round. I went here this Friday.
      First it was a steep uphill and then for the narrow paths through the natural forest. There are a lot of different great trees here.
      After that, the path led over and over again across fields, where I had great views of the landscape. And on it went on narrow paths, up and down again and again.
      It took me a leisurely 2.5 hours in great weather. There were two steep climbs, good hiking boots are recommended here.
      I liked the round very much, I can definitely recommend it.

      Day 3/3 Natursteig Sieg - stage 5 - from Eitorf to HerchenThis time I shortened the access route a little and took the bus to Eitorf train station.
      At 9 o'clock I tortured myself back up the mountain that I had just walked down yesterday.
      The first half of the stage was very nice, again rich in forests, but with a few views. I also saw deer again.
      In the second part, the path went through cleared pine forests again. More on that in a moment.
      After I left this behind me, the landscape became a little more beautiful and so did the paths.
      At 2:30 p.m. I arrived at the Hotel Löwenburg.
      As the storm is forecast for tomorrow, this was my last day of hiking. There are also a lot of dead pines in the next stage, so it's too dangerous for me.
      My conclusion on the first 5 stages: There are a few nice sections, but unfortunately the path mostly leads through forest. Also, there is little to see and few views, in my opinion.
      But the worst is the dead and cleared pine forests. Often it goes for miles like through apocalyptic deserts. The drought and the bark beetle did a great job here. And who is to blame? We!
      As sorry as I am for nature, this is not a nice hike, especially since trails have been destroyed by the forest machines.
      Therefore I do not think that I will continue to hike the natural trail. I cannot give a recommendation for the first 5 stages.
