Our hike begins at the Schützenhalle in Grevenstein. Behind the "Holländer Hof" hotel, we make several short changes of direction through the fields to a hill between the "Eimberg" and "Uchtenberg". Here we initially walk straight ahead at the crossroads and after about 300 m we come to the SGV main hiking route X 13. We follow this hiking route for about 2 km straight ahead in a northerly direction past the "Großer Schneppenberg" (486 m above sea level) and "Kleiner Schneppenberg" (443 m above sea level) to the next crossroads of hiking trails. Keep right here and walk around "Die Burg" (474 m above sea level). After approx. 3 km we reach the chapel "Am Rechenberg" (309 m above sea level). From here we have a wonderful view of the district of Berge in the Wennetal valley, the "Altes Testament" vacation area (Altenhellefeld) and the Ruhrtal valley (Olpe - Freienohl). We now walk down to the center of the village of Berge. At Olpe Straße, we turn right into the street "Zur Küchenhelle" and cross the Wenne. Before the large timber yard, we turn right through the"Jüppkenpark" to the road (L 840) to Meschede. We follow the road for about 30 m to the left and then turn left again up the new Berger Kreuzweg to the hiking trail junction "Am Halloh". Here we also meet the shortcut hiking trails (m) from Oesterberge - Calle and Oesterberge - Wallen. The chapel(further information >>) at this crossroads indicates the long cultural and religious significance of this place.Our hiking trail now leads us left to the forest and then left again down into the Ruhrauen near Wennemen. After approx. 2 km we come to the Ruhrhöhenweg - SGV main hiking route XR, which we follow to the right. After approx. 1 km we reach the Ruhr through a hollow path. We then cross a narrow bridge to reach the tennis courts on the Hagen - Meschede - Kassel railroad line. After crossing the railroad line, we leave the Ruhrhöhenweg (X R) and walk left along the Ruhrtalweg (Domänenstraße) under the highway (A 46) past the Bockum estate to the main road Meschede - Freienohl (L 743). We follow this road for approx. 150 m to the left in the direction of Freienohl and then, after crossing the L 743 and continuing to the left, we reach the Bremketal valley through an old hollow path. We then walk through the "Plastenberg" development area and initially go straight ahead into Berliner Straße. Turning left, we reach a footpath with several steps at Konrad-Arnold-Straße, which leads us to Bahnhofstraße (main street). Here we turn right and walk over the Ruhr bridge and up the "Breiten Weg" to the Freienohl market square.
