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.

Aus Montabaur hinaus vorbei an Kneipp-Becken und Schwimmbad geht es auf Spazierweg und Pfad in den Stadtwald. Von dort an auf breitem Waldweg bergauf und nach Welschneudorf. Dort gibt es eine Metzgerei, einen kleinen Laden und einen regengeschützten Rastplatz. In leichtem Auf und Ab weiter durch den Wald, leider auch mal 'nen guten Kilometer auf der schnell befahrenen Strasse. Kurz vor Nassau erhält man endlich Ausblicke über das Lahntal in Richtung Taunus. Im Abstieg nach Nassau wird die Markierung dürftig - also auf den Track achten.
