Circular hiking trail A 8 - On the dry boot



7,54 km long
regional hiking trail
This forest hike begins at the hiking car park "Am Trockenen Stiefel". The route length is 7,2 km with slight gradients and the walking time is approx. 2 hours. 
We walk east from the parking lot into the forest. The name Am Trockenen Stiefel probably comes from the fact that in the past it was possible to walk around here without getting your feet wet, while there are winding streams and the headwaters of the Hinkesforstgraben in the vicinity.
