Ludwig Leichhardt probably walked the path named after him many times. It leads through varied natural landscapes, taking in distinctive stopping points such as Rampe 6, a former loading station for wood set amid wild forest near Byhlen. Could this path have prepared Leichhardt for his three expeditions to Australia?
