From the stone house in Einruhr, turn left onto "Auf den Römer". At the end of the road, cross the right hand side of Wollseifener Straße and walk sharply left to the next intersection "Am Hostertberg". House numbers 23-27 and 37 act as a guide before the road turns into a forest path and you can follow the signs for Wollseifen. The plateau at the end of the climb rewards you with a wonderful view over the surrounding villages along the Rur valley. Do not go off trail, as there are reportedly active mines in the area.

This trail is dog friendly. It is not a real wilderness hike. You will hike next to homes, abandoned buildings, and hunting areas. It ultimately leads you into a village that you must walk through to continue on the trail. We stopped for a coffee so it wasn’t too bad. Be careful! There are still active mines in some areas so do NOT go off trail. Fishing was allowed in some areas of the river but nothing else. This should be rated as moderate definitely not hard.

Panoramic view of the Urfttal From Wollseifen the signposted hiking trail (Vogelsang) leads you through the magnificent Neffgesbachtal past the former group accommodation on the Vogelsang area, from where you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Urfttal on the way to the "Forum".
