From the starting point of the GPX track in Drolshagen (parking lot at the mill pond), the tour leads via Wenkhausen to the Eichener Mühle. The mill is one of the earliest commercial enterprises in the district of Olpe and was first mentioned in 1512 as the ban mill of the former Cistercian monastery in Drolshagen.

Along small villages, you come to the Schlüsen nature trail at Schützenbruch. "Schlüsen" is the name given in Drolshagen to the old hollow paths that run through the woods here. A nature trail has been created below the village of Junkernhöh to give you a feel for the old days. You can find out how life was on and with the old paths and what happened when the flow of traffic changed with new roads.

The tour continues to the Listerrandweg. The idyllic Listersee offers the opportunity to relax and take a refreshing dip in the cool water. Afterwards, you can continue in a relaxed manner until the loop closes again in Drolshagen.

Of course, you can start this circular tour at any point.
