From now on, we follow the „Waldroute“. The path leads us downhill. We cross a stream down in the valley, the „Lange Bach“, and then continue straight ahead and slightly uphill on the „Waldroute“. We pass a nice rest area, the „Paradies“. Here you should take a rest and enjoy the silence of the nature around you.

Shortly after the „Paradies“, the „Waldroute“ once again turns left from our path, but we remain on the path straight ahead, which now again carries the diamond-symbol („◊“). After a short stretch of way we meet a crosscut and already see from here the premises of the Warstein brewery. Here, we stick to the right and bypass the Warstein brewery on the eastern side in a large curve. After we have bypassed the brewery, we meet hiking-path „X14“. You could now visit the visitors‘ centre of the brewery. Also tours within the brewery are possible, upon prior arrangement under phone no. 02902/88 5002, or you spontaneously try out your luck.

We now walk back, taking the „Waldroute“. After a short while, „X14“ crosses the „Waldroute“. We keep on walking straight ahead and now follow hiking-path „X14“. The path constantly leads slightly uphill. On the right-hand side we discover a refuge in a small clearing, in the middle of the forest. We continue walking until we meet „X1“ at „Ausspann“. Here, you can take a final rest in the shelter. We turn left onto hiking-path „X1“ which we follow until we reach the „Gemeinheitskopf“. Here we turn right and walk down into the valley on „X14/A3“. One more time you can enjoy the great view over the wide forest areas of the nature park „Arnsberger Wald“. Follow „X14/A3“ until you reach Waldhaus Föckinghausen.
