About Frank🚶🏻‍♂️ & Silke🚶🏼‍♀️

Wir haben vor ein paar Jahren das Wandern für uns entdeckt, nachdem wir zuvor eigentlich hauptsächlich mit dem Fahrrad (MTB ohne E-Unterstützung) unterwegs waren.
Meistens laufen/fahren wir gemeinsam 🚶🏼‍♀️🚶🏻‍♂️, manchmal aber auch alleine oder in anderer Gesellschaft. Das erkennt Ihr dann an den Symbolen hinter dem Tournamen. 😉
Beim Wandern bevorzugen wir Rundwanderwege mit einer Streckenlänge zwischen 9 und 12 km. Wir schaffen aber auch mehr. 😉

      Based on the map in the new edition (2021) of the brochure "Wispertrails - Premium hiking in the Wispertaunus" created because the link to the GPX download did not yet work and the path on the Wispertrail homepage is not yet public. The opening is expected to be in April 2021.It has been around for as long as there were seaside resorts. Its reputation is legendary. He has sweetened the stay of lonely people and founded marriages, but also destroyed them. Everyone is talking about him, but hardly anyone openly admits to having known him: the Kurschatten.
      It's back in Bad Schwalbach. Lovely and charming, mysterious and exciting, full of exciting moments.
      This is how this hiking trail presents itself, which leads to the most beautiful corners of the spa park and city forest.
      (from the brochure "Wispertrails - Premium hiking in the Wispertaunus")
      Starting point 1: Bad Schwalbach mud bathing house
      Parking: behind the Kurhaus (P1)
      Bus stop: Bad Schwalbach Kurhaus
      Starting point 2: Schäfersberg hiking car park (P4)
      Bus stop: Bad Schwalbach Schäfersberg
      I planned it using the map from the brochure in the route planning at komoot, but I cannot 100% guarantee that I have hit all the routes exactly. The QR code printed in the brochure on the map and the GPX track at wisper-trails.de/wanderwege/16_kurschatten did not work yet.
      As a starting point, I chose the Schäfersberg car park opposite the Bad Schwalbach car dealership and followed the recommended clockwise direction.
      We don't know whether the route is already signposted.
      Specified data for the route:
      Walking time without breaks: 2 hours
      Elevation gain: 150 m up / 150 m down
      Forest share: 56%

      Our 7th Wispertrail. Schwälbchen's Flug offers great views and beautiful forest sections. Although this circular route only received 58 "experience points" from the German Hiking Institute, we liked it very much. A nice idea is the "refreshment station" in Langenseifen. Shortly after the refreshment station there was a "refreshment from above" for us, but that was over quite quickly.

      Silke without Frank 😁😁
      (The poor man has no time ...)
      In any case, the weather for hiking was nicer with you than here.
      Unfortunately we only had

      On the 28th we ran the Loreley extra tour komoot.de/tour/357093345 and found that the ladders over the pasture fences had disappeared on the "Elchweg". Now we read an article in the last issue of our "Loreley leaflet" which suggested that the ladders were only temporarily dismantled.
      I had promised to check it out, so I drove to the heath and walked the path again from there. There were no ladders and I couldn't see that there are still pasture fences that might have just been dismantled.
      So the current status is, the ladders are gone!
      As the way back, I chose the stairway to the Loreley plateau and walked briefly to the rock peak.
      The stairway has 328 steps until the path splits at the top. On the one hand, you can walk towards the beer garden and visitor center, or you can climb a few more flights of stairs (then there are 397 in total!) And come to a lookout point. This path is marked as a "dead end" on the signpost at the fork. It says "Viewpoint - no tour". That was also the case when the plateau was rebuilt. In the meantime, the cultural and landscape park is freely accessible and behind the viewpoint there is a door in the fence that should be kept closed, but not "locked" (with the possible exception if there are chargeable events on the site)

      The car has to be inspected tomorrow and Silke wanted to get some fresh air after work. So we already drove the car to the workshop (then we can sleep in a little longer tomorrow) and did a little lap across fields and corridors.

      While Silke was walking with the "girl's round" komoot.de/tour/362935365 I walked one of the planned Weisel circular hiking trails in the direction of Urbach / Dörscheid (currently designated as W3 variant A) to get a "clean" GPS -Create file (I stayed pretty much in the middle of the paths and left the cell phone with the recording on the path when I went to the right or left to take a picture). I also wanted to know where signs should or can be attached.
      All planned hiking trails are currently also stored on our komoot profile in the collections, but will soon disappear there. I have already moved it to the komoot profile of the community of Weisel komoot.de/user/2012976026913. They can all be walked with the "Navigation", the signs will follow in a while.

      The Nette slate path offers a lot of variety and lots of views. What is well done, there are information boards everywhere that provide explanations of the views or point out interesting highlights a bit off the beaten track. There are plenty of rest areas and benches. At the starting point there was a notice that you should walk clockwise during Corona times, not in the opposite direction as indicated on the map. We followed that too. But there weren't too many hikers on the way. Most of the time we were alone.
      A really nice round.

      We found the tour today at "ich-geh-wandern.de" and imported the GPX file from there into komoot. This path has NO signs! In Hähnstätten after the small railway underpass we stood in front of a locked gate with the notice "Do not enter - danger to life". Here is the area of the "Botanical Garden Schloss Bieberstein", which is probably still being built. boga-hahnstaetten.de
      The opening should actually take place in early summer 2019. The new date was summer 2020. We do not know whether Corona is to blame for the fact that it cannot continue or there is another reason.
      We then walked a little detour and komoot made me white-hot again. After just 4 days ago the "automatic rescheduling" caused komoot to "devour" the entire planned tour and I turned it OFF again for the umpteenth time, it was activated again today and komoot did the tour by itself rescheduled. You then have no chance of breaking it off or preventing it. I wonder why is there the "Automatic rescheduling" switch ON or OFF in the settings?
      After Hahnstätten we did not follow the given route, but ran parallel on the left (instead of the right) side of the Hohenfelsbach. That was the nicer way.
      At the "three-country corner" we were supposed to walk an off-grid section that wasn't really recognizable as a "path". It was more of an overgrown former "return route". From here we saw a viaduct that we built into the tour, then passed the "three-country corner" and then followed the Taunus Club Route 013, which brought us back to Zollhaus.
      The stops on the Hahnstätten nature discovery trail were also interesting on the way. Nature clearly explained and illustrated.
