The Malerweg is a 112 km long loop trail through the Sächsische Schweiz National Park near Dresden. The complete loop can be split in to multiple stages. The suggestion is to do it in 8 stages. This is the 5. Etappe (stage) from the Neumannmühle in Kirnitzschtal to Schmilka on the Elbe river. The hike goes to the top of the Große Wildberg (the second highest mountain in the Sächsische Schweiz and then down to the Elbe valley into the little town of Schmilka. The majority of the trail goes through the forests of the national park, which is changing from a spruce tree forest to a mix between spruce, beech and oak trees.
