This track takes you to various viewpoints in the Okertal. Pure walking time is less than three hours, in general the path is easy to follow and not very challenging. Only one really step ascend (after the Treppenstein) and one steep descend after Feigenbaumklippe (which can be avoided by taking a small detour).

Since my GPS took some time to start recording, the first few 100 meters are no real GPS tracks but only manual approximations.

At the end, after the Romkerhall Waterfall, I lost the track a bit and had to walk a short while on the road before finding my way back to the „Alte Harzstrasse“. Due to bad GPS-reception this does not show really well... I would recommend that after the Waterfall you try to stick to the „Schoppenstedter Weg“ until you reach the „Alte Harzstrasse“ which leads you back to the starting point. Alternatively you cross the Oker at Romkerhalle and follow the „E6“ back to the parking place (which by the way does not really look official...)


For this trail I was inspired by Dumont's hiking guide „Wanderführer Harz“ (ISBN 978-3-7701-8050-9) which I highly recommend as it has 35 circular trails all through the Harz.

    Vandaag de route gelopen. Was zeer de moeite waard. Heel wat mooie vergezichten en prachtige rotsformaties. Een echte aanrader.
