From the starting point at Kulturgut Schrabben Hof (Silberg Straße 32, 57399 Kirchhundem), the route goes slightly uphill in the direction of "Müsener Straße". At the first crossroads, turn right into the road "Zur Weinspitze" and continue straight uphill until the asphalt road ends at the edge of the forest. Continue straight ahead on a forest path and after approx. 100m turn left onto the signposted forest path (X). At the next junction, continue straight on; follow the markings (X) on the tree trunk. After a long right-hand bend, there is a bench to the left of the path. From there it is about 200m to the entrance of the quarry on the right. The view falls on mossy slopes, dead trees and a small dark pond. There is another entrance a few meters further on, also on the right-hand side. If you follow the circular path slightly downhill, you will reach a fork in the road after approx. 1.0 km. Here you follow the asphalt road downhill into "Müsener Straße" and later onto "Silberg Straße", back to the starting point at Kulturgut Schrabben Hof.

Information about the rescue signsMost hiking trails run away from towns and settlements and every hiker has thought about what would happen if an emergency were to occur. How can I be found here? Where am I anyway? Can the emergency services reach me?But in an emergency, things have to happen quickly! That's why the hiking trail network in the Lennestadt & Kirchhundem region is equipped with so-called rescue signs throughout. The green and white stickers attached to the posts of the signposts have a number that you must give when making an emergency call. This means that the emergency services know exactly where you are and valuable time can be saved.
