Skating is sometimes possible on this trail. Like all cross-country trails, it starts at the Schöneck roundabout. From here it leads in the direction of "Hotel Tannenhaus" and turns right before the Meilerteiche. A little further we turn left and then follow the further course through the Schönecker forests back to the starting point.
