The circular trail "Neuhaus" takes you to the restored Heve stream. At various points you come right to the water and can find insect larvae and freshwater shrimps. On your hike, you have a good chance to hear the calls of Black Woodpecker and Raven. The flowery roadsides attract numerous insects, such as the Silver-washed Fritillary. Various species of dragon- and damselfly flit along the stream in search of food.

Eine schöne und abwechslungsreiche Rundwanderung. Sehr informativ auch die Hinweistafeln am Wegrand, die über Historie und Ökologie des Areals informieren. Nach Regenwetter ist der Weg jedoch stellenweise sehr matschig und dann am besten mit Gummistiefeln begehbar.
