Hedgerow route


To the left and right of the Rur river, the trail pass through centuries’ old field hedgerow landscape. Around Eicherscheid, the fields are separated from each other by hedgerows rather than fences, which ensure that the cattle don’t escape. The varied day-long tour leads over the Eicherscheid plateau, from where there is a wonderful view stretching out over many kilometres, to unusual rock formations such as the “Uhusley” and high-up viewpoints offering great views into the distance over the hedgerow landscape and the winding Rur valley.
