Visitors will also have the privilege of hiking through the Bavarian Forest National Park. In order to get to the start of this portion of the route, continue along the main route through the Oberpfälzer Forest and begin in Herzogau (see https://www.alltrails.com/lists/der-goldsteig-im-oberpfalzer-wald).
