On the 1000 m long path, the visitor experiences the chaos after the storm Kyill of January 18, 2007. The land-owned area was left to itself after the storm. Today, the visitor sees how new plants are reclaiming the area.

250 meters of the trail are barrier-free, making the storm area accessible to wheelchair users and families with small children.

On January 18, 2007, hurricane Kyrill destroyed huge areas of forest in Südwestfalen.In Schmallenberg-Schanze, the forest was deliberately preserved on an area owned by the state of North Rhine-Westphalia in the same way as it was left behind by Kyrill. The idea is to establish a representative reference area and to create a unique visualization and experience project.Along a path of 1000 meters, visitors will be able to experience the chaos left behind by Kyrill directly and up close. Wooden footbridges and steep stepladders lead over heights and depths past imposing root plates to viewing platforms right in the center of the storm damage.A special feature is that part of the trail, about 250 meters, has been made barrier-free to make the storm area accessible to wheelchair users and families with small children.The Kyrillpfad is located in the Regional Forestry Office Oberes Sauerland at the end of Schmallenberg - Schanze and is also easily accessible via the hiking parking lot Kühhude, near Bad Berleburg.
