This circular trail leads around the two Eifel villages of Schönbach and Utzerath. A special highlight along the route is the Kreuzberg. The Eifel View grants you a breathtaking view over the volcanic Eifel. From Easter to October, you can find goats on the hillsides of the Kreuzberg, which have been settled there as part of a grazing concept. The area is freely accessible.

The trail leads through longer forest passages and is therefore very pleasant to walk even in hot weather. Great distant views and romantic valleys along small streams make the trail very varied and ensure a lasting nature experience.

 

Highlights along the way:

1.2 km Goats at the Kreuzberg 1.8 km Eifel View Kreuzberg

Für mich eine eher langweilige Wanderung ohne Höhepunkte. Ausschließlich breite Forst- und Waldwege ohne nennenswerte Aussicht. Das einzig lohnenswerte Ziel ist der Kreuzberg in der Nähe von Schönbach.

Einen Stern Abzug wegen des doch sehr steilen Anstiegs und fehlender Wegmarkierung von Utzerat bis zur B259. Ansonsten ein schöner Wanderweg.
