During this walk you follow your GPS! Along the route, geocachers will find 7 traditional caches. The walk is 5.5 km long and you cover 70 altimeters. Not for prams and wheelchairs.
You start at the ski hut "Im Himmelchen" in Weywertz and follow the road to the northeast (= road away from the center of Weywertz). Take the first forest path to the right. At the end of this path you turn right again. At the end of the small tarmac road where you are now, turn right again. You come to a kind of triangle where you walk to the left. Follow the road and take the first forest path to the right. This path goes down quite steeply. At the end go to the right and cross the Warche. Take the first road to the right. Attention, this is where agricultural machines regularly pass during working days. This is also the access road to the quarry which is located a bit further on. You go straight on and soon you will see the footpath under the RAVeLbridge next to the Warche. You follow this path that ascends slightly. Almost at the end of this road you follow the sign "Warchetour" to the left. You are now in the pine forest along the banks of the Warche. Very nice, almost always dry, but watch where you step. The path is small. It takes you out of the forest and brings you to a bridge over the Warche. You don't cross the Warche, but you turn right. You'll see two roads: one asphalted and one non-asphalted. Follow the non-asphalted agricultural road (ascending!) and climb until you reach a bridge under the RAVeL. The agricultural road turns left here, but you don't follow it anymore. You have to walk straight ahead. You are now on a beautiful trail along which many daffodils bloom in springtime. At the end of this path turn right. You follow the wide, non-asphalted agricultural road that leads to the street "Im Himmelchen". Follow this street until you arrive at the parking lot. Don't forget to look for the Geocaches on the way :-)
You can do this tour the whole year round, except when it has snown...you wouldn't find the caches...Wear solid hiking shoes, not always very easy to walk...
Safety informationAttention when you pass the agricultural machines business. This is also the acces road to the stone quarry at your right, behind the machines business. The path goes straight on to the bridge under the RAVeL.
Tips, hints and links
- In spring you come along daffodil area! Inform at the local Tourist Info, whether they already blossom or not. Nice to see!
- At the place named "Lanowe", it's the place where you leave the Warche and climb back to the "Black Mountain" or "Schlangenvenn", it's great to relax in summertime and enjoy the good weather!
- In autumn and winter the Warche has a violent flow here, quiet amazing for what schould be a small river.
- We talk about 7 caches but there are 3 more within reach of only 1 km extra... So don't hesitate...
