Demanding circuit in the Schönecker districts Eschenbach and Gunzen with their typical village character, but also wonderful views of the upper Vogtland.
Distance 15.7 km
From the "Alter Söll" lookout rock in Schöneck, the start runs below the church, on the left in the direction of Eschenbach. Passing the atonement cross from the 30 Years War, you pass two beautiful half-timbered houses at the entrance to the village. After a few meters, turn right uphill, where a first view of Schöneck opens up. The district of Gunzen is on the opposite side of the forest. But before the next destination is reached, the path leads through Eschenbach. On the right hand side, further and further uphill, wonderful views over the upper Vogtland open up again and again. The route runs on varied forest paths to the left into the valley of the Zwota (crossing of the railway tracks). Keeping to the left at the Oberzwota sign tree (connection to the cycle path), take the Wolfsbachweg back to Schöneck.
