The start of the GPX track is in Drolshagen (parking lot "Am Mühlenteich"). However, you can of course start this circular tour at any point. In Hützemert you will find the Altern train station and not far from it the Wegeringhausen Tunnel, the longest cycle tunnel in NRW. Take a detour, but remember: the return to the Lister loop is in the opposite direction.

The Schlüsen nature trail is located behind Germinghausen and Junkernhöh. "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. You reach the Listerrandweg via Heimicke, Schreibershof, Herpel and Kalberschnacke. You return to Drolshagen via Hitzendumicke, Dumicke, Bühren, Fahrenschotten, Frenkhauserhöh, Öhringhausen, Wenkhausen and Siebringhausen.
