Circular walk around the village of Erfweiler. One of the highlights is the new viewing platform on the cock rock which gave this trip its name.
The new Premiumweg Hahnfels-Tour starts at the Belmontplatz in Erfweiler. After climbing up the Hahnberg with the Hahnfelsen we have a fantastic view over the Wasgau. Here is the ideal place for a picnic. The bizarre Schafstein rock along which the trail passes, is very popular with climbers. On the top of the Panorama Kahlenberg there is yet another impressive view of the Castle Alt-Dahn, the next stop on this tour. This castle is the largest ancient castle in the Palatinate and just has to be explored. After the walk towards Erfweiler and through the Langenthal it starts to get romantic. Enjoying nature is the motto here. Refreshing spring water and a waterfall make weary travellers fit again for the last leg back to the starting point.

Despite the well-signposted trail markers along the premium hiking trails, we recommend for security reasons to always have an appropriate hiking map so that, for example when a storm occurs, you can quickly either find shelter or get out of the woods.
Especially in the autumn it is also important to remember that leaves lying on the ground can conceal irregularities, such as roots, rocks or holes in the path. Following storms, trees can have been uprooted or have branches hanging down. Such path impairments have to be expected when using such trails . Especially in adverse weather conditions, it may occur that the trails and paths turn into muddy and slippery passages. Path impairments of this kind have to be expected when you go out for a hike. Not all rocks or slopes are secured with ropes or railings and sure footedness is required. Should you be of the opinion that these are not accessible to you then you should try and get around them.
Sturdy footwear and all-weather clothing, sun and rain protection, and a sufficient quantity of food and drink, should no refreshment facilities or shopping possibilities exist or be open. Although the path is always very well marked, you should for safety reasons always have an appropriate hiking map with you.
