Above the starting point is the Schock Chapel, also known by locals as the Chapel of the Sinner of the Poor. In front of the chapel, vantage points far into the Eifel are marked on a slate board. The trail heads downhill on earthy, winding forest paths to the Mörsdorfer Bach stream.
Behind the Pulgermühle mill, the trail begins through the Flaumbachtal valley through open meadowland along the forest's edge.
After crossing the Flaumbach stream, three climbing routes follow: the Burgberg climbing route, the Schinnkaul climbing route and the Höhlenschlucht climbing route. Those who do not want to take on the strains of the climbing routes can use the signposted bypass. The bypass trail and climbing routes come together again after a few minutes.
Afterwards, the trail runs through the extensive forest area past old slate tunnels, slate spoil heaps and partially reconstructed dwellings of the former slate tunnel workers. You can recover from the long ascent from the Flaumbachtal valley and enjoy far-reaching views of the Eifel on a bench.
The trail has been awarded 90 experience points by the German Hiking Institute.
All of the dream loops have some steep, difficult passages that can be slippery in rainy or winter weather. Therefore, hiking boots, sure-footedness, and good physical condition are essential requirements for hiking these premium circular trails.
This dream loop is not accessible in ice and snow.
Three climbing passages require a head for heights. These climbing routes can also be bypassed.
