Umhausen -> Waalweg -> Umhausen
Distance 2.1 km
This walk starts right at the Bischoffsplatz car park. The climbing trail to the right of the Kneipphäusl snack station leads directly into Tauferberg forest. Once on top, a level trail forks off: the Waalweg Trail - a former irrigation ditch still flanked by a small brooklet - was used for watering the meadows in long past times. Follow the route until you get to the cart trail that leads back to the starting point.
