UFFBASSE! - Campaign for considerate coexistence in nature.
Fire & Smoking - Lighting fires, smoking and barbecuing are strictly forbidden in the forest and must be avoided at all costs! This is the only way to avoid fires and the resulting damage to nature and wildlife.
Be considerate when out and about - Always act with foresight, kindness and consideration towards everyone you meet along the way.
Nature conservation - Stay on the designated paths and avoid unnecessary noise when you are out in nature. Leave the forest at dusk at the latest to avoid disturbing the rhythm of nocturnal animals.
Picnic & litter - Remember to bring a litter bag and take litter home with you. Use only the furnished rest areas for breaks and picnics.
Leash your dog - Please keep your dog on a leash at all times. Other visitors and animals will thank you for it.

Safety informationDespite the markings, we recommend for safety reasons to always have an appropriate hiking map with you so that you can quickly find your way to a safe area in case of a thunderstorm or emergency, for example.
Especially in autumn, you should also be aware that leaves lying on the ground can hide bumps, roots, stones or holes in the path. After thunderstorms or rainstorms, trees can still fall over or branches can fall down. Especially in adverse weather conditions, muddy and slippery passages can occur on natural paths. This type of trail damage must always be expected on hikes. If you are of the opinion that certain sections are not passable, it is better to avoid them. In addition, not all rocks or slopes are secured with ropes or railings. In some cases surefootedness is required. Rocks should not be climbed, especially by children, as the brittle sandstone poses a danger of falling for amateurs. Handrails and fall protection must never be climbed over (danger to life).
On a current occasion: Corona signpost German Hiking Association
Note: We always endeavour to announce on this platform any closures that occur due to forestry work or hunting parties. Nevertheless, there are situations where hiking trails are closed and we may not have been informed. If you unexpectedly encounter such a trail closure or diversion, please be sure to follow the instructions for your own safety.
Tips and hintsAt the moment, Gräfensteiner Land Tourism is implementing a visitor guidance concept with numerous, partly new paths. In this context, a new signposting of all trails according to the hiking trail guidelines of Rhineland-Palatinate as well as the new furnishing with structural facilities such as seating groups, benches, fall protection and, if necessary, stairs and bridges is planned. All this also applies to the Rodalber Felsenwanderweg, which is an integral part of the new network of paths. If the old structures are in poor condition at the moment, we apologise. As described above, this will be remedied shortly!
