The Biohof Gensler in Poppenhausen is the starting point for this youth trail. From the church in Poppenhausen, walk to the pool and continue on fields to Tränkhof. We cross the road and climb steadily on a dirt road and through the forest up to the aviator monument with a great view to Fulda and over the Kuppenrhön. We treat ourselves to a little breather. Afterwards we walk underneath the radome and the Märchenwiese with two summer toboggan runs (www.sommerrodelbahnen-wasserkuppe.de) and other fun rides is our next stop. An action-packed experience is the visit to the climbing forest (www.sommerrodelbahnen-wasserkuppe.de) behind the fairy tale meadow. The cradle of gliding is on the Wasserkuppe. The Segelflugmuseum (www.wasserkuppe-rhoen.de) is home to over 30 older models to visit, and gliders, motorbikes, paragliders and hang gliders take off for a sightseeing flight over the highest mountain in Hesse. On the road we hike to Fuldaquelle. From here, the well-known river makes its way to the town of Fulda and then continues through the Fulda Valley to the mouth of the Weser in Hannoversch Münden. The trail leads us now curvy in the direction of Guckaisee. The Guckaisee is the largest natural lake in Hesse. He is also divided into two parts. The lower part is used as a bathing lake, the upper part for other recreational activities such as canoeing and pedal boating. The water quality of the lake was rated "excellent" by the EU in 2014. After a refreshing dip on hot summer days we reach the starting point in Poppenhausen. Tip: At the Biohof Gensler (www.bio-hof-gensler.de) you can spend the night in tipi tents. The fresh home-baked bread sold in the farmer's shop should definitely be taken on a hike for a picnic.
