From the meeting point at the Scheeler Mühle we walk in the direction of Dassiefen. The babbling Scheelbach is to the right of our path. It goes leisurely up the path, the cool July morning means well to us. We look into the Leppetal and approach the beautiful view above Dassiefen. Benches invite you to take a break here. We continue through the (former) forest, a small path leads us down to the Eibach castle ruins. We enjoy the mountain idyll and then return on the Rudi Hoffmann path back to the Scheeler Mühle, again with the Scheelbach.

We start from the hiking car park 'Mul' in Hückeswagen with a lot of delay, as one participant has already lost her orientation on the approach. On the A6 we go into the forest and soon arrive in the tranquil hamlet of Röttgen. We leave the houses and the large paddock behind and follow the path down into the forest. We quickly come to the stream of the Purd. The paths furrowed by the water and the flooded meadows give us only a rudimentary impression of the floods of the past week. The path leads us through the hamlet of Purd up to Oberburghof. Again we come to the forest and walk through the stream landscape lined by meadows and forest back to the starting point. Thanks to Ingrun for this beautiful hike!

The Mühlenweg in Kürten is one of the 24 Bergisch forays. From the parking lot of the Splash Bad, it goes on well-marked paths through numerous small hamlets around the main town. After a few minutes we see the beautiful Andreas Chapel in Biesenbach. We continue to Delling, here we take a look into the small church and marvel at the unusual ceiling lighting. The inn is unfortunately not yet open. We leave it behind and continue to the Schultheismühle and then to the Olper Mühle. A detour to the Olperhof is a must, after all, we want to buy honey there. On the large display board along the way, we learn a lot about the history of the mills and the lives of the people. Via Offermannsberg we hike back into the Sülztal, at Waldmühle we cross the main road and go up into the forest. We take a break in front of the St. Johann Baptist church and enjoy an ice cream. With renewed momentum we grab the last part of the Mühlenweg.
