The circular trail "Hellerberg" takes you to an area declared a natural forest reserve in 1976, with up to 190-year-old Beech trees. The natural forest is surrounded by a wilderness area. Here the commercial use has been discontinued, so that the forest can develop freely. Dead trees are left lying. You can hear the call of the Black Woodpecker and Raven in this very natural Beech forest.

Eine abwechslungsreiche, kleine Runde. Wenn man keine Lust auf große Touren hat, sehr zu empfehlen.
