The youth trail starts at the mighty dam of the Edersee. We now climb steeply up the mountain and enjoy the view of the still resting Edersee. We follow the jungle trail to Hemfurth. There we can with the Edersee Draisine (www.eder-draisine.de) make a detour to Affolderner See and the Great House (www.das-tolle-haus-am-edersee.de). The great house gives the impression of a completely normal house with the peculiarity that it is upside down. Next we walk to E.on - hydroelectric power plant. There we can choose between 2 variants. In the first variant we can follow our primeval forest trail signs on natural paths to the parking lot Peterskopf or let us always bring us to the flood reservoir with the E.on funicular railway at the full hour and enjoy the magnificent view of the nature park. From the Peterskopf we go on the Ochsenkopfroute (the exact route under www.nationalpark-kellerwald-edersee.de.) Down to the parking lot Peterskopf. We now follow the asphalt road downhill to the county road and cross it. Through the field we walk to the wildlife park with birds of prey show and refreshments. Now comes one climax after another. After only 10 minutes you can reach the Baumkronenweg (www.baumkronenweg.de) with a detour of approx. 500m over the Squirrel Path. Variant: Directly from Baumkronenweg to the climbing park approx. 200m. But we suggest you to walk to the settlement Rehbach and on hot summer days on the beach to take a sunbath or refresh in the Rehbachklause with a cool drink. Now we walk comfortably along the lake to the climbing park (www.kletterpark-edersee.de). Soon after we reach our starting point, the Sperrmauer. Here the water adventure garden "Aqua Park" awaits us. He does not only fascinate the little ones. Accommodation: Am Edersee has 2 youth hostels: Jugendherberge Edersee Waldeck and Jugendherberge Hohe Fahrt. In addition, many campsites for camping. Show more

Moderate MTB route. Be considerate of the hikers. Fully is an advantage; but also works with a hardtail.Show more

This route is a certified premium hiking trail that leads around the village of Kleinen. From the heights, there are always wonderful views of the village, so the name says it all. You walk along forest edges, meadow valleys and bubbling streams.Show more
