The starting point of the GPX track is in Drolshagen (parking lot at the Mühlenteich). However, you can of course start this circular tour at any point. The 750 m long Drolshagen hedge maze is located above Stupperhof. The labyrinth is not a maze and the path has no branches. It is a place of meditation, a symbol of the center.

The Schlüsen nature trail is located near 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.

In Hützemert you will find the old railroad station and not far from it the Wegeringhausen Tunnel, the longest cycle tunnel in NRW. Take a detour, but remember: the route back to Drolshagen is in the opposite direction.
