The refuge "Am Steinbühl" offers a first resting place after you have made the ascent. Through the forest and past the "Eschenbörnchen" well you will reach the Feldbergblick. Soon after, you have to cross the road K 490 (please be careful!). Along the edge of the forest the hike goes downhill, then to the right through the fields and you will come to a small pond with some resting benches.
In the forest near Gräveneck, we recommend a detour to the Wittekindstollen where local mining history is ever-present. After another forest passage you cross the road L3452 and the idyllic Wirbelauer Bach. Through the forest, over meadows and through orchards, the small hamlet of Falkenbach finally comes into view. Leave it to your left and continue downhill towards the sluice.
When the little road curves to the right direction, the Lahnwanderweg trail leads uphill and then once again through a long and quiet forest passage. You will find another opportunity to just look around and linger in the Lahnaue. Directly along the Lahn, you will finally arrive at the stage's destination Aumenau.
