At the Meiler you start on a simple circuit, past the source of the red hollow. After crossing Muldenberger Straße, the route turns right through the forest to Muldenberg. In Flößerdorf, the old road branches off to the left to Muldenberg train station, which is followed. Before the train station, cycle left for about 200m in the direction of Grünbach, but then leave the street and turn into Fronweg Grünbach. Past the Grünbach train station and the Druckersmühle rest area, a little later you will reach the Rissfälle in the valley of the White Göltzsch. In Hammerbrücke, the route continues in the direction of Muldenberg, from where the tour goes back to Schöneck via the Talsperrenrundweg and Hämmerlingsweg, past the Neuwaldteich.
