You follow the Sentier Maurice Cosyn through the Wollefsschlucht and Deiwelsschleff, past the Perekop to Berdorf. Across the village you come to the Raiberhiel, the Zigzagschleff and the Siweschleff, all of them spectacular rock formations. Before descending to the Ernz-Noire you can take a look on the beautiful valley of the Sauer from the viewpoint on Kaasselt. Up the two brooks Haalerbaach and Haupeschbaach you come closer and closer to Beaufort. When the castle comes into sight (sign change) you have nearly reached the youth hostel.
