Idyllic natural landscapes invite you to linger. The juniper heath in Bleckhausen and the babbling of the Kleine Kyll create a very special atmosphere.

The HeimatSpur Wacholder-Kyll-Weg near Bleckhausen is a hidden idyll and invites you to take a long break. The trail is a little away from the tourist attractions and is therefore less frequented. It is ideal for experiencing silence and hiking close to nature.

The start is in the centre of Bleckhausen at the hikers' parking place and leads through the middle of the nearby juniper protected area, a bit through the Trombach valley and between meadows and fields back to the starting point of the tour.

The area is a true Eldorado for enthusiasts and nature lovers. The juniper pasture enjoys a special and lasting recreational value because of its special flora and fauna.

 

 

Highlights along the way:

• 2.1 km Valley of the Kleine Kyll
• 4.6 km Fuchskopf viewpoint
• 8.1 km Juniper Heath in Bleckhausen

Sehr schöne Wanderung, die überwiegend Wälder führt, so dass man ihn auch bei sommerlichen Temperaturen laufen kann. Auch unsere zwei Hunde hatten ihren Spaß, vor allem am Trombach, der zu Wasserspiele einlud. Am Ende wird noch mal die Kondition gefordert, da es ein längeres Stück bergauf geht. Alles in allem empfehlenswert.

Schöne Wanderstrecke. Besonderes Highlight sicherlich die Wacholderheide. Dort laden auch mehrere Rast- und Ruhemöglichkeiten zum Verweilen ein. Gepflegte Wege mit guter Beschilderung. Leider fast ausschließlich breite Wege und sogar asphaltierte Abschnitte. Bis zur Wacholderheide würde die ein oder andere Ruhebank den Weg zusätzlich aufwerten. Alles in allem eine ordentliche Strecke, nicht mehr aber auch nicht weniger. Auch für ungeübte Wanderer locker machbar.

In zijn geheel is het een mooie wandelweg, het eerste deel gaat vooral door bos (wat toch een beetje lang aanvoelt), het tweede deel loop je in open landschap met mooie zichten. Wat het meest opvalt is de totale stilte en rust op deze wandelweg. Aan de startplaats is er echter amper parkeerplaats (2 maximum 3 plaatsen) zijn die bezet is er wel 600 meter verderop een wandelparking.
