The Lahnwanderweg trail now joins the fairy tale trail “Kleiner Rothaar” (little Rothaar) for a while where you can learn about the life of the little redheaded dwarf Rothaar who cares about nature. Over a wooden bridge the signposting of the Lahnwanderweg trail leads us into the wild and romantic upper Ilsetal without getting wet. Now you will have a wonderful walk along the river Ilse. At the holy spring of the Ilse you should take an inspiring break on the hiking wooden lounger. Afterwards cross the small brook again and follow the markings up to Heiligenborn.
A secluded spot with pretty half-timbered houses. For a short distance the stage now runs parallel to a district road with little traffic and, immediately behind a car park for hikers, leads straight ahead into the forest towards Feudingen. Hurricane Kyrill has provided some beautiful views in this section. From Lahnquelle onwards, you hike almost exclusively downhill. Silently and contemplatively, the walk continues through the cosy forest.
Where the trail leads out of the forest, you will have an openened up view over the hilly landscape. A small rest area at the entrance to Feudingen offers a beautiful panorama of the small climatic health resort. Following the road "Zum Eichholz" you reach the hiking portal in Feudingen after walking a few hundred metres. Here the second stage of the Lahnwanderweg trail starts. From the hiking portal you can easily reach the centre of the village near the church, the railway station and the accommodations in the village.
