On a legendary trail ... ...

We explore this predicate trail with its two unique landscapes. We first climb up the fabled Sickinger Höhe whose namesake Ritter  Franz von Sickingen to 1523 lived at the castle of Nanstein in Landstuhl and whose landscape has been heavily influenced by the use of mills. From above we look down on the mystical Westricher Moorniederung. Unspoilt grasslands, silent forests, bizarre rock formations, wild canyons and sunlit views are just waiting for us. The Sagenhafte Waldpfad can be started on from a number of starting points. Depending on your condition, there are various trail lengths, whether clockwise or anticlockwise being immaterial.

Turn-by-turn directions

The Sagenhafter Waldpfad starts at the railway station of Bruchmühlbach-Miesau   (more starting points in the flyer). Following the first feeder path it goes into the woods toward the district of Vogelbach. After the first few metres, a feeder path branches off to the viewpoint "Hoher Fels", from which there is a view of over the Westricher Moorniederung and up to the hills of Nordpfälzer Bergland.

The main route passes Vogelbach leading past lush pastures and meadows and reaches the resting place at the Kneipp facility "Vogelquelle". Time for a refreshing drink or a rest in the shade of deciduous trees.

After a moderate uphill   climb, the trail then leads steeply uphill to the Sickinger Höhe. The forest scenery and the view down to the villages in the valley soon lets you forget the physical exertion.

Green sloping meadows and fields are symbolic   of the agricultural character of these hillside villages. 

Those of you who would like to visit the village of   Lambsborn, should now follow the next feeder path. Here you have the opportunity to eat and drink and also   visit the local museum "Wies frieherwor" on the Kartoffelhof Gortner (T. 06372 7934) as well as tasting a sample of the local potato schnapps on offer. The feeder path then leads back 1.6 km to the main route.

Following this wide-open landscape, the trail soon reaches the edge of the forest. After a short time there is, once again, the possibility of shortening the tour via the lookout point "Hoher Fels" and back to the starting point.

Through the Palatinate Forest, the main path now leads through the forest, winding its way up to the wildly romantic “Elendsklamm”. The natural monument has been left to itself for decades. Another feeder path leads directly through the gorge to the “Tausendmühle”, a mill which was once driven by the   Frohnbach. A visit to the mill shop is well worth while (Thu-Sat, T. 06372 1438)

After passing through the “Elendsklamm” the trail wins again in height. Along an old paved "post road" it then leads to the stone quarry of   "Busche". A nice quiet corner that invites you not only to explore, but also provides a shady spot for a snack. After crossing the Belzmühltal, a feeder path leads to the   Fritz-Claus Hutte. 

The narrow trail then leads downwards, following the Mühlbach on the grounds of the Belzmühle. A sculpture trail and Kneipp facilities offer even more diversity. A short climb up through the fragrant forest then leads to the hunter’s clubhouse.

A little later we reach the bottom entry to the “Elendsklamm” where a short climb up the stairs is worth while! 

The “Sagenhafte Waldpfad” now leads past   the 400 year old mill “Tausendmühle” with its ancient   beer cellar.

A short time later we arrive at the starting point of our circular trail.

Leider führte der Bach in der Elendsklamm nur wenig Wasser ( Frühsommer 2020 war sehr trocken ), so dass es auch keine richtigen Wasserfälle gab.

Schöne Tour für heiße Sommertage, da sie größtenteils im Wald verläuft. Die Klamm, die eigentlich das Highlight der Tour ist, hat nur momentan sehr wenig Wasser. Im Kneippbecken war leider gar kein Wasser.

Bin diese sehr schöne Wanderung seid 2017 schon mehrmals gewandert und auch schon 3 mal gejoggt,immer mit meinem Hund(auch er findet die Strecke super da es immer wieder Wasserstellen gibt).Am Freitag 24.04.20 waren wir wieder da, dabei habe ich festgestellt daß einige der neuen angeklebten Schilder abgefallen sind und an Baum oder Pfosten angelehnt sind.Für Neulinge aber leicht zu übersehen. Für die Steigungen bei Vogelbach sind Stöcke sehr zu empfehlen.
