On a relatively short distance you experience two great rock formations with the Hohenstein and the Großmördersnack. Again and again there are great views in the direction of the Hunsrück and beyond the Middle Rhine Valley into the Taunus. Detours to the Vogelsnack and to the forest classroom are possible.
