This trail is a certified premium hiking trail that offers plenty of variety and memorable experiences for the whole family. In the woods one encounters again and again interesting rock formations. The circular hike starts at the Eisweiher, which is located on Landauer Straße near the Municipal Hospital. From there it goes to the anvil rock and on to the parking lot "Platte". Here you follow the sign towards Waldhaus Starkenbrunnen on a natural path gently downhill and arrived in the valley the number 5. To Kanzelfelsen, a rock formation, leads a slightly stronger slope. After descending into the valley you can stop at the Waldhaus Starkenbrunnen, if open. Continue to follow the red-yellow bar and meet the Forsthaus Beckenhof with its wide gastronomic offer. From there the forest path turns into a path and you get to the striking rock gate. Next at an intersection, a path closes in northern direction. Here you choose the small, slightly ascending nature trail. This round leads to impressive rocks, the Luitpold Rock, Broken Rock and the Schillerwand. Before descending into the glass valley, the path makes a detour to the west. Following the red Nordic walking mark you will reach the already known way back at the height of the Luitpold rock. You pass the whale-tern, a spring, and reach over the anvil cliffs again the ice pond. The idea for the tour came from Pirmasenser Felsenwald - Description • Regional Trail »Tours at outdooractive.com, but was varied and re-recorded.
