At the Maxstollen many information boards explain the mining history of Olsberg. Further up to the Langerberg, where an adventure trail has been established for some years.Now it goes downhill to the Ruhrauen. Over the newly built bridge the path now leads below the old railroad bridge onto the road in the direction of Schellenstein Castle.

A very long stretch until you reach the pedal station "am Vossbach". The route now goes in the direction of Olsberg.The trail now leads along the pedal point "an der Ruhr" to the Hasley hut.
