Weg mit viel Landschaft ohne nennenswerte Highlights. Leider ein Teil versperrt mit einem Haufen Erde.

Heute haben wir den 1000Jährige Pfad gewandert. Ein sehr schöner Pfad Schattenreich mit schöne Wege und Pfade, auch die Umgebung ist super mit schöne Aussicht. Der Pfad ist gut unterhalten, nur verschiedene Bänke mussten mahl das Gras geschnitten werden, sonst ist er gut ausgebildet. Ein Pfad zum genießen sicher in diese Wärme. Eine super Wanderung.
