A little later (around noon) at the Polenztal inn, we walked along the stream on the Polenztalweg towards Rathen. Then we went relaxed and almost alone on the Füllhölzelweg to the health resort and Amselsee. In the village and at the lake it was, as was to be expected, relatively full, but after the first steps on the pioneer path towards Hockstein we were almost alone again. On the junction we then climbed to the Hocksteinbrücke and descended through the Wolfsschlucht to Polenz. In the end, the hike was even crowned by a few sunbeams on the viewpoint on the Hockstein and the combination of weather forecast and rain radar has proven itself. :)

The tour runs around the Muldestausee and starts in Pouch at a small, somewhat hidden parking lot. From there it goes along the shore for some time and there are many beautiful views of the lake.After you have passed the sailing club, you will soon go into the forest, always along the marked path. After a while the path becomes quite wild and you have to climb some fallen trees. In addition, it seems as if there was an (illegal) rubbish dump here years ago, which is now coming to light again through wild boar and erosion.A few hundred meters before you reach Friedersdorf, you can walk right to the shore and have a beautiful view of the lake. When you find the right place, there are two chairs that invite you to rest. (There is a fishing spot here, which apparently is also often used for campfires.)

The route runs very quietly but well developed around the Bockwitz lake. You will also pass the viewpoint of the former Südkippe rest hole, which is now called Harald-Krug-See. Named after the conservationist and bird expert Harald Krug, who died in 2016.The route can be varied quite easily and can be extended as you like. The Harald-Krug-See can also be included in the tour, or you can turn left after a little more than 8km to walk along the wetland ring wall back to the starting point, the parking lot at the turning point.
