The 12-kilometre-long Dahner Felsenpfad (Dahner Rock Trail) runs for the most part on completely new, narrow paths and opens up attractive rock formations. It is not only the varied route that is impressive, but also the indescribable variety of shapes of the bizarre stone formations. Anyone setting out on the trail should be reasonably sure-footed and have a certain level of fitness. The Dahner Felsenpfad (Dahner Rock Trail) is a premium hiking trail and is well signposted along the entire route with the "black rock on orange background" markings.

Safety informationDespite the well-signposted trail markers along the premium hiking trails, we recommend for security reasons to always have an appropriate hiking map so that, for example when a storm occurs, you can quickly either find shelter or get out of the woods.
Especially in the autumn it is also important to remember that leaves lying on the ground can conceal irregularities, such as roots, rocks or holes in the path. Following storms, trees can have been uprooted or have branches hanging down. Such path impairments have to be expected when using such trails . Especially in adverse weather conditions, it may occur that the trails and paths turn into muddy and slippery passages. Path impairments of this kind have to be expected when you go out for a hike. Not all rocks or slopes are secured with ropes or railings and sure footedness is required. Should you be of the opinion that these are not accessible to you then you should try and get around them.
We endeavour to announce all closures caused by forest works, hunting parties on this platform. Nevertheless, there are situations where hiking trails are closed and we may not have been informed. If you encounter closures or diversions on site, please follow the instructions for your own safety.
