This hike takes you around the entire Grumsin World Natural Heritage Site with all its diversity: Lakes, moors, Hallenbuchenwald beech wood. The path first takes you north through Altkünkendorf in the direction of Lake Wolletzsee.

You continue in a southern direction via the undulating fields of the Schorfheide to Zuchenberg - now you walk through the beech forest - to Lake Großen Plunzsee, where you can take a break on its southern shore.

After another half an hour you reach the Milchschafhof Luisenfelde sheep’s milk dairy. The farm shop sells yoghurt and cheese every afternoon. Now you walk westwards through woodland and undulating fields along Lake Brackensee. A little while later you reach the green hiking trail, which starts in the Geopark information centre and then continue in a northern direction. You walk past Lake Großer Schwarzer See and reach your starting point a good hour later.
