Hiking along the Waldschluchtenweg means the enjoyment of idyllic brook valleys, unspoilt alluvial. Along narrow paths, the trail goes through fairytale forests, past Roman relics.
The starting point of this circular hiking trail is the car park Feisternachtbach valley. The trail crosses over the L309 and the Hillscheider brook, and above the brook goes through moderately high mixed woodland, past steep cliffs and the Tannenhof’s fish ponds. The trail again crosses over the L309. In serpentines uphill and then further on at Hirzbach up the valley. Through old high forests the path is first gentle and later goes steeply uphill to round the Kuckucksberg.
At once it goes past the waterworks to the Bember mill. The climb that follows leads to the Limes wall, hidden in the forest, a relic of Roman times that is on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage sites since 2005. Already before the first houses of Höhr-Grenzhausen, at almost a parallel height, the path goes round the side of the Puschenkopf and goes on to the Saustallkopf. In wide serpentines the path now goes downwards into the Feisternachtbach valley, crosses the brook and goes along the left bank downhill to a little lake with a lodge and onwards, back to the starting point.
