We start the Meschede Höhenwanderweg trail at the market square in Freienohl and walk west along the "Breiter Weg" for about 50 m, then turn right into the streets "Twiete" and "Alte Wiese". The old Langelbrücke bridge spans the Ruhr. Our route then turns right into "Unterer Küppelweg". At the pedal basin, we immediately turn left. From here, the ascent to the 413 m high Küppel begins. On the middle Küppelweg, it is worth taking a short detour to the right to the "Queen of Peace", a statue of the Virgin Mary.On the Küppel, you should definitely climb the 25 m high viewing tower(further information >>). The climb is rewarded with a magnificent panoramic view over the Sauerland, the "land of a thousand mountains". On a clear day, you can even see the Westfalen Tower near Dortmund in the north-west.From the Küppelturm, we turn east and after approx. 3 km reach the "Wennemer Höhe" (503 m above sea level) in the Arnsberg Forest Nature Park. We follow the Wennemener Höhenweg and reach the Plackweg, an old "border road", at the Enste-Knick (543 m above sea level).After another 2 km or so, we reach the Meschede-Hirschberg road (L 856), which we cross (take care when crossing this busy road) and then turn south-east. Our hiking trail leads past the television tower and after another 200 m we turn left. After approx. 1.5 km we reach the inn "Zum Stimm-Stamm" on the B 55.There used to be a border station at the "Stimm-Stamm" (540 m above sea level).We carefully cross the busy road (B 55) here and walk along the Plackweg for another 300 m to the east and then southeast through the "Greverhagen" into the Kohlwedertal to the "Josefssee". From here we reach the Bundesgolddorf Eversberg with its old town hall and the local history museum in the historic town center after approx. 3 km, climbing slightly over the Schnettenberg.


Parking is available in Freienohl at the market square. This is also the starting point of the third stage. You will find further parking facilities along the route marked on the hiking trail indicated.
