The circular tour continues up the Feuerberg (832m) to the Kissinger Hütte. This provides a great spot for a stop en route. Great panoramic views of the snow-covered Schwarzen Berge (Black Mountains) also open up on the tree-free areas around the hiking hut.
From there, the tour continues in a long arc on the slopes of the Feuerberg. In a short distance you pass the mountain rock (756m), the crater of a dormant volcano. Then there is only a short distance to go before you return to the starting point at the Eiserner Kreuz hiking car park.
Safety information2x road crossing of the district road KG 45.
Most of the Rhön ski and cross-country trails are intended for use by skiers/cross-country skiers. If a walker "gets lost" on the route, we ask that you pass on the information that routes (partly) are reserved for winter sports enthusiasts, out of mutual consideration.
