The hike starts in Großkmehlen and follows signposted forest paths along the ridge. The trail leads through deciduous forest, which provides shade in summer and displays impressive foliage colours in autumn.

Historical elements are also part of the hike. Remnants of the former ski jump, which lies on the path, can still be seen, including the clear track of the former landing slope. Further along the route is the autocross track of the "Am Kutschenberg" race track, where various autocross races are held every year on gravel and natural surfaces.
