Turn-by-turn directions

The Mountain Canyon Trail begins in Brodenbach and first leads the hiker into the "Brodenbachtal" (Brodenbach valley). Lined by steep escarpments, the trail continues uphill along narrow paths to be rewarded with spectacular views. The passage that follows through the Mosel escarpment leads to a refuge hut, where the river Mosel lies at the hiker’s feet. The next target is to conquer and go round the Schafberg mountain, from where there is a panoramic view over the entire region. Traversing the long mountain, the path goes first to Nörtershausen and then into the Brodenbach valley.

The unspoilt nature, the steep rocks and secret caves, as well as the Donnerloch with its change between rocks and bubbling water put a spell on the hiker. After leaving the valley, the mighty Ehrenburg mountain is the next target. Defiantly, Ehrenburg castle dominates perched on a rocky ledge high over the Ehrbach Crest and creates a real “medieval feeling”. Before arriving at the castle bridge, the trail goes through the unspoilt Ehrenbach valley, initially downhill, before a last climb up the final passage along the “Sonnenringpfad” leads directly into a steep slope in the direction of the Mosel valley. A narrow serpentine path turns and twists downhill to Ehrenmal, from where there is a last view of the Mosel. Having arrived at Brodenbach, the trail returns to its starting point.
