The hikes starting at the Höfener Mühle are rightly known for the access to the Daffodil fields - when in season. But the area is beautiful during all times of the year. In this case, we even found Apple and Plum trees along the trails.

This trail explores some of lesser known paths in the area. Particularly noteworthy is the portion from the 'Holländerhäuschen' (the house of the Dutch guy) to the 'Lange Schneise' (long glade), and the last stretch back to the House of the Dutchman. The latter path has been classified on some maps as a mountain-trail, and signposts have recently been removed - owing to the state of the footpath, which due to some erosion along the Fuhrtsbach stream has one or two tricky bits.

Note that the House of the Dutchman is the name of the location where the Fuhrtsbach flows into the Perlbach. There is no house. It hasn't existed for a long time.

Note that trails on the Belgian side of the border may be closed, when military exercises are taking place in the nearby Elsenborn Camp, though on weekends the area is mostly open.
