This ambitious trail around the picturesque locality of Larochette runs through an interesting landscape and is technically sophisticated. Many short uphills and some technical passages make this tour quite sporty.
Trail is marked in one direction only.
Start: Youth Hostel Larochette, but it also comes alongside Camping "Auf Kengert", so this would be an alternative starting point.
From the starting point at the Larochette Youth Hostel, you cycle through the valley, past the ponds, up to the plateau. At camping Kengert, you ride for a short distance (70 meters) along the road and then take right, first along the edge of the forest and then back into the forest towards Larochette castle. From there the trail leads along the other side of the hill to Verluerekascht with a beautiful view of the castle. After Camping Birkelt Village, you cross the Goldbaach and then ride down to Meysembuerg castle. You cycle through the valley of Manzebaach back to the valley of the White Ernz and cross the river. You return to the starting point along the slopes east of Larochette.
