This trail begins and ends in the village of Wilhermsdorf in Fürth County, Bavaria. After initially following along the railroad line through the Zenn valley, the trail makes a turn up the hill and quickly leads through fields and forests. At the right time of day, you will be able to see deer and many other animals on the edge of the forest. The first high-light on the trail is the Staakreizgärtla ("stone cross garden"), a collection of historic stone crosses and border markers, some of which date back to the 16th century. Close by, you will also see several impressive wind turbines. The trail then turns sharply West, through agricultural fields, crosses a lightly trafficked paved road and then reaches the picturesque Lenzenweier pond. A short detour of a few hundred feet will take you to Wilhermsdorf's old Jewish cemetery, another high-light of this trail. The final part of the loop leads through the community of Unterulsenbach back to the historic center of Wilhermsdorf.
