Sauerland-Seen / Outdooractive Touren / Kleiberg Ost - nature experience trail through the pasture landscape near Büecke south of Soest
The Kleiberg pasture landscape owes its character to its former military use. Today, semi-wild cattle and horses graze on the large, open areas, ensuring that no woody plants grow. Three gorge-like dry valleys, known as Schledden, cut through the protected area.

The Kleiberg is a former military training area that has not been used for military purposes since 2004. Today, the areas are used for grazing. Many songbirds, such as skylark, yellowhammer, tree pipit, meadow pipit and red-backed shrike, can be observed here. Typical plant species include thorny hackberry, common centaury and several orchid species. The area is known for its abundance of amphibian species. The endangered yellow-bellied toad can be found here.

Directions

An extensive network of mainly gravel paths makes the Kleiberg accessible to pedestrians and cyclists. Some of the ascents are too steep for wheelchairs. On this circular route, there are two observation mounds in the middle and east of the reserve, which are around four meters high and accessible via steps.

You can reach the area via the B 229 (Soest - Arnsberg). To the south of the A44, turn off to Hiddingsen. In Hiddingsen, follow the signs to the "Steinkiste" restaurant.Address for navigation: Körbecker Weg, 59494 SoestGPS (UTM): 32 U 438563, 5709473Google coordinates: 51.533962, 8.114449
