Hiking parking area Huxlay Plateau above Mehring. Due to the narrow slope road, especially during wine harvest, it is recommended to already park in Mehring and to hike up the plateau (approx. 200 m to the Huxlay Plateau). At the other entry points in Pölich, Schleich and Ensch, there are also parking spaces available in the villages.
