The circular hiking trail “Schwalenberger Wald und Mörth” offers the varied nature and landscape of the Schwalenberg Forest over a total of 17.1 km. As a starting point you can alternatively choose the car park at the cemetery Schieder (Unter den Eichen) or the car park in Schwalenberg Mengersenstraße on the L 827 / L 886. Whereby you should take your time to visit the old town of Schwalenberg with its well restored half-timbered buildings.
The long and wide mountain ridge between Schieder and Schwalenberg with its beech, oak and spruce stands is criss-crossed by streams and gorges on the slopes and rises to 446 m above sea level. On its broad plateau is the “Mörth”, whose name derived from “Moor” refers to the former raised bog.
