Along the stream, past the old water mill with drinking fountain and fish ponds, march straight uphill to the road. Continue to the right here and after about 100 m turn left along the field path. At the end of the dirt road, turn left and continue downhill towards Wellinggraben. Shortly before the road, turn right up the Perlleiten, through the forest to the road. Keep to the right here and follow the road for approx. 800 m until it continues steeply uphill to the left at the edge of the forest. Then follow the road and after about 500 m, before the road climbs again, leave it and follow the meadow path down to the left. In the forest follow the markings, in the stump ditch turn right over the bridge uphill for a short distance and continue left along the forest path. Then turn left again down to the stream. After a longer stretch uphill, you reach the hill and turn right onto the municipal path in the direction of the Kitzeck parish church, past the municipal office back to the starting point of the hiking route.
