Following the markings, the trail now continues through the hinterland, a mainly agricultural area. Meadows and fields alternate. A bench is waiting for you at the signpost "Unten im Grund", inviting you to sit down for a moment before you will get into a beautiful section at the Steimelskopf nature reserve. On the panoramic trail at the 242 m height of the Steimelskopf you can enjoy an incredible view between the Taunus and the Westerwald.
Along the edge of the forest the markings will guide you across the meadow down into the Tiefenbachtal. The Tiefenbach has a length of only 9 km and flows into the Lahn. You will cross it over a small footbridge. Through the forest the trail now climbs uphill to the edge of the forest. There you keep left and after walking about 200 meters turn right again. Above the Schanzlerhof the view opens up and you can see as far as the mountains of the Taunus. Now you hike down left towards the farm, which was built in 1958 as an resettled persons' agricultural farm. Today it is mainly used as a horse farm.
Continue straight ahead across the district road and once again along the edge of a forest. At the Villmar Nord signpost, you follow the access signs going left downhill through the forest. In Villmar you can take a detour to the Unica natural monument. At the former marble quarry, you will have a deep insight into the history of the earth. You can also learn everything worth knowing about Lahn marble by visiting the Lahn Marmor Museum.
