Take advantage of the nice weather and cycle a little longer. Just drive off first. At -von Langen Platz- I choose the Hils-Kammweg in the direction of -Roter Fuchs- 🦊 and you can hardly believe it, the path is closed from halfway through ⁉️. Then I drive back a little and take the -Wildstiege- down on the deeper path to bypass the barrier. The attempt to get back to the Kammweg along the -schiebehalbeHütte- I had to stop in the mud. 😩 So back a bit and on the familiar paths up to the ridge. Go then. Past the Raabe tower to the -Roten Fuchs-, then on the -Langen Weg- and through the birch wood home. That could have been worse 😜

Hanskühnenburg, our goal today. We started at the Sösetalsperre dam. First, it goes up on beautiful forest trails. On the first mountain there is a roadblock with diversion. There is a signpost (easy ascent). This is just right for us, because it is very warm today. But the diversion was probably not meant because the path initially leads slightly downwards. At the end of the detour, it became serious and uncomfortable to climb another 350 meters of altitude. Unfortunately, everything without a nice view.
The Hanskühnenburg is managed and the stop is worthwhile. There is delicious home cooking here.
For the way back, we simply follow the signs to the Sösetalsperre. It is pleasant, but not spectacular.
Summary: Hanskühnenburg is nice, but we would not repeat this route.

For once, that's the plan. I didn't want to commit myself, so I just typed -Greene- into the navigation system and wanted to follow the route roughly. That was completely in the pants after just over two kilometers. The indicated path ended at the edge of the forest, but turning back is out of the question. There must have been a path here, i.e. pushing (carrying) 100 meters through the undergrowth with thorns then it will go on. Not a good idea, but I did it. Then it went up steeply, although I actually wanted to drive down the edge of the forest. If I’m upstairs, I’ll keep going here. The chosen route is totally extended and cannot be driven on with my tires. No matter then I push 300 meters through the mud. Back on firm paths, I drive relaxed down to the barbecue area at Selter. From here, a well-developed path actually leads along the Selter, but only to a hunter's chair.
Here only a narrow path continues, will go, goes, but only a few hundred meters. I am completely in thorns and scrub again. The navigation system shows a larger path about 100m ahead. So punch through and actually I hit a drivable way down to the Esbeck estate. I relax on the country road to the power station to relax. Back up to the seldom, I want to go around it and that should work from here. If it also goes a few kilometers, later only 200 meters of thorns and nettles, then there is a freeway in front of me. An extra piled-up slope to set up the mega masts. Enough for today, I'm going straight home now.
Summary: Some nice ways, though
do not follow it exactly like this.

Today I decided to take the cliff path on the back of the goat. After climbing up to the landfill, a beautiful view of my home awaits me. Here you can take a little break. But now on the tour. The path can still be seen quite well, although there are probably only a few hikers walking along here. It is a rocky, natural path that requires surefootedness, but it never leads dangerously along the abyss. It is a great pleasure to walk here because there is always something to see. Old and dead trees that have probably died naturally. On the left hand there are always vacancies that give a view of the surrounding villages, even now in summer. It's really fun to go here. It is a pity that the way is only so short, because it makes you want more ridges. I leave the Selter and head towards Imsen. Still a wonderful place for a rest at the edge of the forest. Here I decide to go one more ridge path. So on to the Steinberg. The route leads via Imsen towards Gerzen to the Tonkuhlenhütte and further up to the Steinberg. Now a huge ascent along the horse stable (climbing rock) and the next ridge path is in front of me. A nice path, but without special viewpoints, at least in summer when the trees are leafy. I break off half the length of the comb and go home, but not because it's not beautiful, but because I've dawdled too much. I'll make up the rest for sure.

Actually just a shopping trip. The goal is a slaughterhouse in Deensen. There are said to be excellent sausages. Put on the navigation system and off you go to Kaierde. The first Hils crossing begins here. The crisp climb is rewarded with a long descent past the former labor camp in the black country. Traces of it can still be seen today, and there is still an old railway bridge. Next, the navigation system sent us over the Heisnecken to Lenne, past the -Trojanischen Pferd- and along Heidelberg to -Mammut Park-. This is private property and should not be used by bike, so back on the road, on to Stadtoldendorf and there towards Holzberg. Now through the NSG Holzbergwiesen to Deensen to the butcher. Fill the pannier and program the navigation system to home. The return trip is then mainly on the road. Luckily, the descent on the federal road to Eschershausen can be avoided and the climb to the Red Fox is more pleasant on the forest path.
Now just roll the rest of the 860 meters in altitude and it's done. It may be more convenient, but it was nice that way.

One in advance. The tour is completely cloned. Many thanks to JEA. From Wolfshagen to the Granetalsperre and back at the Diabas quarry. A hike with many interesting highlights, but the view of the quarry will blow your mind. Fantastically beautiful. Of course, this also has to do with the light. We were there around 2pm and the light was great.
Recommendation: definitely hike.

Super weather, nothing like out and about. It should be a home round before work. Through the Klus to Kaierde, up to Fahrenberg and along the weekend houses on Meserberg. Between Röhnberg and Spangenberg back to Delligsen. Now go up to the Steinberg and enjoy the beautiful panorama. Too bad the look at the clock forces me to end the hike. Working comes first.
