Along the edge of the forest and over fields you will now reach the Schanzlerhof. Above the farm the view opens up and you can see as far as the mountains of the Taunus. Through the forest you will now walk 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.
Although the trail is not very steep, it constantly goes uphill to the Steimelskopf. On the panoramic trail at the Steimelskopf you can enjoy an incredible view between the Taunus and the Westerwald. Afterwards you will get into a beautiful section at the nature reserve. A bench is waiting for you at the signpost "Unten im Grund", inviting you to sit down for a moment. Passing meadows and fields, you will finally get to the Heimannsmühle.
At the end of the tour, there is another beautiful section through the forest with views of the Lahn. Hikers will have the choice between several places for refreshments at the stage destination in Aumenau. The railway station is on the opposite side of the river Lahn.
