Gepke valley circular hikeGepke valley circular hikeGepke valley circular hike

The path takes you slightly uphill through the valley of the Gepke until you arrive at a junction with hiking-path „XR“. Here you will find a bench on the right-hand side which is a wonderful place in summer, also to refresh your feet in the chilly water of the Gepke stream. On the left-hand side a small bridge is leading across the Gepke, but please do NOT walk into this direction!We turn right onto „XR“ and after some metres turn again, slightly leftwards onto „A1“. This path leads uphill - at first through open fields, later through dense high forest. Several benches afford an opportunity to rest. The path winds further uphill. Don‘t worry, you will soon have made it!Arrived at the top the forest opens up. Turning right you reach „A3“. You can now already discover Hotel Waldhaus Föckinghausen in the near distance. Follow „A3“ until you reach our small holiday-home. Turn left again and you are back already!
