A circular hike through a historic mill valley: the hike is mainly along forest and meadow paths. Open forests and fields guarantee wide views as far as the Eifel region.
An ascent, quite in the middle of the tour, on a rather leisurely tour: despite the length of 11.5 kilometres. Insights into the hiking tour:Right at the beginning of the hike you will find the local museum in Longkamp - a mill museum that tells the story of the formerly numerous mills in the area and thus documents a piece of local history in its own way. The hike takes you through the so-called Longkamper Mühlental: Along the Trabener Bach the path leads past six historic mills, whose wheels were still in operation until the 1960s. Today the mills are used as holiday homes. Beech forests, open field landscapes and views far into the Hunsrück and Eifel regions characterize the 11.5 km long hiking trail.Refreshments are available in inns along the way - take along the most exquisite rucksack provisions and enjoy them on the benches along the way.
Shopping for hiking food (there are various shops in Longkamp), resting in a field and enjoying the view of the distant Eifel.
