Varied round tour through shady forests, past mysterious rocks to the high altitude health resort Grünbach. From here it goes to Werda, from where a detour to the Geigenbachtalsperre is highly recommended. Following the route, you pass the former Haselmühle quarry and shortly afterwards you reach the town of Schöneck again.

Starting at Klingenthaler Straße, turn left into the Meiler area. The tour leads past the Muldenquelle along the Muldenbrandweg. Passing the Rehhübel and the Affensteine, you reach Grünbach, where you continue further into town via Poppengrün in the direction of Bergen. About 2km before entering the village, turn left onto a small forest road in the direction of Werda. From here it is worth taking a detour to the Geigenbachtalsperre. The round trip then runs from Werda through the forest back to Schöneck.
