The trail starts at the "Jägerhaus" and then follows a small creek through the Steckeschläferklamm where numerous tree spirit sculptures have been carved and painted into the trees. The trail then traverses a lush forest and the next highlight is the remains of an old Roman villa that have been excavated and are accessible for the public. The trail then leads to a very nice overview over the Rhine river, crossing an adventurous hanging bridge. In the next trail section along the ridge of the Rhine valley there are numerous further views over the river. An old donkey trail then leads to the old Rheinstein castle, which can be visited for a small fee and also has a restaurant. The trail then climbs back up through the picturesque Morgenbachtal back to the Jägerhaus.
