Heady heights and deep down into the valley.
The first section of this leg between Moselkern and Löf demands a certain level of fitness: the trail first follows a steep path through the vineyards – to then reward hikers on the next section along the edge of the slope with magnificent vistas. The "Küppchen" viewpoint affords a splendid view of the Moselle and Baybach valleys and Bischofsstein Castle close by. The view is all the more impressive if there are also paragliders and hang-gliders soaring in the air above you. The route of the unspoilt Hatzenport Laysteig Traumpfad Trail now runs parallel to the Moselsteig – both paths descend into Hatzenport before climbing up again to the Rabenlay with its mountain hut and resting place. Shortly thereafter, the Moselsteig splits from the Traumpfad and heads downhill through dense box trees and along the Kehrbach Valley to reach its destination in Löf.
