This hike starts in Auerbach at the Gasthaus Egginger or alternatively at the car park south of Muschenried.
From Auerbach to the Muschenrieder Kapelle, the first 2 km are about 220 hm long.
From the highest point of the hike, the chapel, you follow paths and forest paths down to the Hartl, Rosenlehner and Wagner quarries.
Seating and shelter huts invite you to take a break here.
The granite history of Zachenberg and nature in the quarries is explained on nine information boards in the restored Steinhauer hut of the Wagner quarry.
An old crane, broken workpieces, compressed air pipes and pressure vessels testify to the former activities.
Continuing on the main route we reach the old quarries on the west side of the Muschenrieder valley.
