Stage description

N.B.: We don't have an English description of the stage just yet. We'll give you the German version for now until the English version is ready.

Von Bad Laasphe geht es an der Straße bis zum Bahnübergang Friedrichshütte und hinter der Bahn rechts bald in den Wald hinauf. Gemächlicher Anstieg durch überwiegend Laubwald, später dann Reste des derzeit wegen Trockenheit und Borkenkäfer abgeholzten Nadelwalds. Bald nach dem Rastplatz am Großgemeindestein geht es rechts relativ steil hinab ins Ilsetal. Dann auf schönem teilweise aber schwer begehbarem Weg entlang der Ilse bis zu ihrer Quelle, einer der schönsten Talwege seit Flensburg. Dann rechts aufwärts und bald parallel zu einer Straße zum Lahnhof.
