Medicinal mineral water and juniper heaths, lush meadows in bloom, fragrant heaths, tranquil forests and overwhelming panoramic views enchant the hiker. Rustic refuge huts invite the hiker to a break, a drink at the mineral spring “Sauerbrunnen” gives him refreshment.
The trail starts at the car park at the spring of the medicinal mineral waters “Sauerbrunnen” on the L 83 in the Nette valley. An access road leads to the starting point at the spring. Rustic wooden steps and a soft forest footpath give the first view into the Nette valley and lead on to Volkesfeld.
There the ascent starts to the impressive Riethel cross that can be seen in the distance. The cross is bedded in fragrant juniper heath and there is a fabulous panorama view. The path gently follows the ridge and goes past the nearby development area in a wide bend along meadow paths that lead to Volkesfeld. After passing briefly through a wood and open meadows another wonderful panorama is revealed where the the K 63 is crossed. Leaving the village behind, the path continues along a soft track to a resting place.
Soon a narrow path climbs to the heights of Wabern Heath and presents unspoilt juniper bushes, brilliant gorse bushes and gnarled pine trees. The Wabern Juniper Hut has the best views in almost all directions and makes an inviting stay. Continuing through the heath the trail goes through a forest to the rock promontory “Falkley View” with its unique view of the Nette valley far below. With luck it could be possible to see wild cameroon sheep along the following stretches through forest and meadows.
A short detour (altogether 500 m) leads to the Noorkopf summit with a 270° view. Back on the trail, it descends at the edge of the field to the Florian’s Hut with its lovely view of the Nette valley. In the forest the path twists in wide bends down to the valley. At the end of the tour the medicinal “Sauerbrunnen” spring with mineral water containing iron makes an inviting, healthy refreshment before the trail ends at the hiker car park.
