The Kermeter range is home to one of the largest deciduous forest areas west of the Rhine. It is also one of the key areas of the Eifel nature park. On three sides, it is encircled by the reservoirs of the Rur and Urft.

We selected this hike as a training hike, with the aim of more than 700 meters elevation gain. For this, we had to cross the summit plateau three times; and while this sounds rather repetitive, it actually proved to be a fun hike on well-maintained forest trails and roads. This hike covers a distance of more then 22.5 kilometers.

The hike starts at the tourist center in Rurberg. Rurberg is one of the prime touristic spot in the northern Eifel, boasting cruises on the ships on the dams, an outdoor swimming area on the lake, and several hotels. It can be very busy on fine summer days - though there will be much less traffic on this hike.
