A balanced mix of woods, hedgerows and open countryside with scenic views of deep valleys and high mountain peaks reward the hiker for the multiple ascents and descents on this section of the trail. Along the way there are many rest stops, essential for getting the best of your hike. After starting in Monschau, the Sonntagsley hills offer a magnificent view of the medieval city, with its slate roofs, before the trail continues past the high beech hedges in Höfen to the Rur Valley. After another ascent, the trail passes through a long stretch of forest above the Rur River through woods and rocky terrain. The long curving Rur Valley opens up in front of you until Einruhr.
