Length: 8.2 mi • Est. 4 h 20 m
This premium hiking trail offers a lot of variety. From breathtaking panoramas, through winding paths, to bizarre rock formations, you will not be bored on this hike. Those who set off should be relatively sure-footed, but it will definitely be worthwhile. On mostly newly created, narrow tracks opens up over 12 kilometers of interesting and ever new rock formations. Already at the beginning of the hike, it becomes clear that this route has a lot to offer when standing on soft ground in the light-flooded forest and absorbing the Mediterranean atmosphere. The circular route starts at a parking lot at the sports park near Dahn. From here it first goes through the forest in the direction of Schiller rock massif, where a plaque commemorating the 100th anniversary of the death of the poet waits. The next steep ascent is rewarded with a great view at the top before continuing towards Schwalbenfelsen and Felsen-Arena. It is best to follow the trail marker "Black Rock on an orange background".Show more
