The Rotenfels massif, along the edge of which a long section of the trail runs and offers a magnificent view of the Northern Palatinate, is the highlight of this short hike. It leads through meadowland and oak forest to the Rabenstein viewpoint, from which one looks down into the Salinen valley. An inn near the start and finish invites you to stop for a bite to eat.

Don't miss the short detour to the outlook at Raven's rock.
