The circular trail is about 1.3 km long and ends a little above the parking lot at the Gleiberg community house.Depending on the course of the grazing season, cattle of the Red Ridge Cattle can be seen in some areas along the path. There are 7 boards along the trail with information about the Red Mountain Cattle. The last board is a quiz that asks for the information in a playful way.On the way you have a wonderful view of the Gleiberger Land with the castles Vetzberg, Dünsberg and Burg Gleiberg. Seats are also available at regular intervals and invite you to linger.

Author’s recommendation

The circular trail is about 1.3 km long and ends a little above the parking lot at the Gleiberg community house.After the walk you should definitely visit the castle Gleiberg. The steakhouse at the castle is also very close to the starting point.

Turn-by-turn directions

The nature trail can be found on the southwest slope of the Gleiberg below the castle. It is best reached via the small car park opposite the playground on Burgstraße. From here you walk down Burgstraße for a short distance and then turn right into Pfortgärten. Follow this street to the end and then you will see the first sign at Hainweg. From there, turn right until you can turn off the small road onto a path. After the path, which is lined with trees and bushes, the landscape opens up. On the right side of the mountain you can see Gleiberg Castle and the path splits a few meters further on. It goes along a fenced plot of land steeply up towards the castle until you see the next signpost further up. From there turn right to the end of the short tour at the parking lot.The way was signposted with a cow head symbol. However, these markings are missing.

Leichter Spaziergang mit wunderschönen Aussichten. Im Frühling zur Obstblüte sehr empfehlenswert. (Aus unserer Sicht leider) Sehr kurz.
