Directions

The starting point of the hike is the SGV square in Amecke, opposite the church. Parking is available at the fire station or on the Airlebnisweg (subject to charge). The continuous marking is Am2. First follow the road 'Im Kaltenborn' uphill and then turn right at the edge of the forest. Along the foot of the Kamberg, after 1.5 km you reach the natural monument of the 'Krause Eiche', a really quaint, old, tousled oak tree. Benches invite you to take your first rest here. The route continues up to the Höhweg, where you also meet the Sauerland-Waldroute. Up here, on the heights between Sundern and Sorpesee, the effects of Hurricane Kyrill in 2007 are particularly impressive. If you look back, you have a great view of the Sauerland Siebengebirge around Stockum. After just under 2 km, the Waldroute is left again and the path now heads left and downhill onto the middle slope path of the Sorpetalsperre dam. Here you keep left again and "curve" comfortably, always with a view of the Sorpesee, back to Amecke. The last two kilometers of the hiking route run directly along the Sorpesee and the new "Airlebnisweg" along the reservoir.
