The valley slopes become steeper, the valley narrower. Opposite the Spitzmühle is the village of Korna on the mountainside. From here the tour goes up to Arnoldsgrün and along the fields through the forest to Marieney, the birthplace of the poet Julius Mosen and the cartographer Adam Friedrich Zürner.
The tour runs past the church towards Saalig, where you turn left to Wohlbach. Here at the oldest church in the Vogtland, the tour continues over the Galgenberg to Gunzen (connection to the cycle path). With a wonderful view from the mountain, you can roll down to Eschenbach, where, past the Bockmühle, you reach the starting point in Schöneck.
