Safety informationThe following generally applies:
In autumn in particular, it is important to remember that leaves lying on the ground can hide bumps, roots, stones and holes in the path. Trees can topple and branches can fall down after thunderstorms and rainstorms. Natural paths can become muddy and slippery, especially in poor weather conditions. Not all rocks and precipices are secured with ropes or railings. You need to be sure-footed in certain areas. Damage to paths of this kind is to be expected on hikes. If you feel that certain sections of the path are not passable for you, please avoid them.
We endeavour to announce all closures due to forest work or hunting parties on this platform. Nevertheless, sometimes there are situations where hiking trails are closed and we may not have been informed. If you unexpectedly encounter a road closure or diversion, please follow the instructions for your own safety.
At the beginning of the tour, you have the choice of starting either in Vorderweidenthal or in Oberschlettenbach. In addition, you can use the trail parking lot of the Naturpark Pfälzerwald at the ruins of the Lindelbrunn. Here is also the possibility to stop for a meal or stay overnight at the Cramer house which also offers accommodation.
We start the tour from the castle ruins of the Lindelbrunn, having explored them, we continue on to the Hahnenhof, which offers a recreation centre for children and adolescents. We then proceed to Oberschlettenbach, an idyllic village which has a village fountain from which one says that its water helps you to stay young and healthy.
From Oberschlettenbach we walk towards the Haselstein. The Haselstein is a freestanding rock tower, which, as with many rocks in the Wasgau, is used by hawks and owls as a breeding site. But the Haselstein is not the only rock formation on the tour. Once we have managed to go over the Löffelsberg, which belongs to the village of Busenberg, we continue to the Buhlstein and the Buhlsteinpfeiler through Vorderweidenthal to the Rödelstein. The rocks of the Wasgau stretch almost endlessly to the horizon and offer a dream world for both hikers and climbers. However it is also a history book, since from the Rödelstein we go back to the ruins of the Lindelbrunn, which after a frequent change of owners in the 14th century was finally split up and were renamed the Ganerbenburg. It was finally destroyed in 1525 during the Peasants Revolution and after that was not rebuilt.
