From the car park at the Irenkreuz you will find the entrance to the trail about 100 m from Sandberger Straße on the way to the Neustädter Haus. The trail runs steadily uphill in waves through the forest until you reach the Kreuzberg trail.

After completing the Kreuzberg circuit, return to the Irenkreuz car park on the same route.

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.
