Almost the entire walk takes you through beautiful beech woodland, the dominating tree species in Hainich.
The circular walk starts at the ramblers' car park "Harsberg" near Lauterbach. You first follow the "Hohe Straße" (high street), a historic trade route. By the Mülverstedter Kreuz, shortly before Ihefeld and Betteleiche, you turn right to the edge of a slope and walk along it before descending to the Kalkgrund. There is a shortcut back to Harsberg for those wanting a shorter walk.
Don't miss out on visiting the Harsberg Information Point before you set off or when you get back.
easy, some unexacting uphill slopes
