Wacholderweg

Hike along the Eifel Traumpfad Wacholderweg (Juniper Trail)

A premium-quality trail through unspoilt nature, juniper heaths and every sort of forest. Whoever would like to experience a little more can combine the Juniper Trail with the Mountain Heath Trail to make a long circular tour.

Description of the Traumpfad Wacholderweg

The starting point of this Traumpfad is the Wabelsberg Juniper Hut at the upper end of Langscheid. The trail goes through beautiful heathland around the Webelsberg mountain with views of the East Eifel mountain tops covered with forest. Crossing the plateau the trail goes past Langenfeld with its distinctive church (Eifel Cathedral).

Repeatedly interrupted by stretches of forest, the trail soon becomes a grassy footpath going uphill to the Büschberg mountain. The juniper heath, typical for the Vordereifel, invites the hiker to make a short pause at the beautifully designed resting place. Soon the path goes into the forest, where a branch leads to the neighbouring “Bergheidenweg”. The wide forest track twists its way downwards following a rippling brook and finally leads to the Nette valley.

And then the path goes a short while uphill along a grassy path with a view over the valley. The trail turns down into a forest of high beech trees and then downwards again towards Nette, before the final ascent starts through varied forest back to the Wabelsberg Juniper Hut.
