It goes along the border ridge to Bohemia, always in the Bavarian Forest National Park, to the north lies the Czech Sumava National Park.
Special day highlights are the many shafts (former forest pastures) and felts (raised bogs).
Attention: Please do not leave the marked paths (mostly Bohlensteige)! Sulzschachten, Albrechtschachten, Rindl- und Jährlingsschachten, Lindberger Schachten, Kohl- und Hochschachten, Alm- und Verlorener Schachten lie on the route.A very strenuous hike (but one of the most beautiful in the Bavarian Forest), but at the end it's a bit difficult uphill to the Waldschmidthaus just below the Great Rachel Peak.
