Amazing trail on a hillside in the middle of the Ruhr-area. Some parts of this loop are used by horses and MTB's. Around 6 km, there's a firemen watchtower which is open to public. Just a little of the trail is an abandoned mine entrance. Trail is mostly wide and partially paved. It is recommended to print a map and use the app, as signage is spotty.
