Starting from the Ellenbogen hiking car park, not far from Noahs Segel, the Eisenacher Haus and the Thuringian Rhönhaus, this tour takes us across the Rhön high plateau - the Hochrhön. Through a dreamy forest area and across open meadows we reach the Black Moor and the snack bar there.

At the start and end of this cross country ski run you can extend you tour on the local tracks.
