Mueden (Oertze): River Forest Adventure Trail (tour length 19.1 km)

    Route of the hiking loopT he long tour of the river forest adventure trail (W3) is initially the same as the short tour, but it takes the hiker much further south. 

    Having crossed the  Sauerbruch  the terrain on the side of the trail drops steeply into the Oertze valley. After  Buemmbachsfeld  the trail leads through the  tributary valley of the Buemmbach stream

    It continues across Ahlkenmoor that has been cultivated into pasture land and then on through Trannhoepen forest. Finally, the hiker crosses the Oertze Bridge on the outskirts of Baven at the jetty

    The return journey leads through the west side of the Oertze valley across the Brunau and on through expansive forests towards  Mueden (Oertze) . The route follows the wild animal park  through Mueden back to the point of departure. The route of the medium tour joins the long tour at this point.

    The route can be combined in many ways with a starting point in Baven near  Hermannsburg

    The long tour is indicated by a large purple-coloured circle in addition to the pictogram shown here.
