The natural forest reserve "Kreuzbuckel" has been on my to-do list for a long time. For me as a lover of forests and trees, such areas that have been removed from forestry use are a great goal.Short explanation:
At the Kreuzbuckel, a primeval forest of tomorrow is emerging on an area of 69 hectares. The approximately 150-year-old mixed beech and oak forest with individual spruce and larch groups has been withdrawn from forestry use since 1998.I parked on a small dirt road directly on the St2312. From there it went up into the forest, past a group of goats and sheep, steadily slightly uphill in the direction of the Kreuzbuckels. The way there mostly runs on wide forest roads, but also on a small piece that was "paved" with stones a long time ago. I am always fascinated by that. Who and what probably drove / walked along there earlier. Why was that paved? And by whom? What a job in any case!
After about 2km I arrived at the natural forest reserve. The path goes past it to the left, and here you have the first glimpses of how dense and dark the forest is there. One can easily compare that, on the left of the path there is a managed forest, on the right no longer managed. At the end of the reserve, I first made a conscious decision to walk down towards Waldaschaff to get an impression of the forestry there. And what do i see? Two 40-ton trucks jet through the forest to pick up the felled wood.
After a long stretch, which was pretty straight forward, I turned back up towards the Kreuzbuckel. Here the path leads through an area that was almost completely cut down and replanted years ago, on the pictures you can clearly see that of the old beeches and oaks that were still standing, in all of them! the crowns have died. It's no wonder if these trees are cleared in such a way that the sun can reach the ground and the bark unhindered. A beech is a shade tree, forestry doesn't get it. Well different topic.
After a junction to the right and a little bit on a forest path, it finally went into the nature reserve. There is a path right through it.
BUT! Please be careful and be aware that nothing is being done in there, branches could break off. You enter at your own risk. Although that is quite normal in the forest ;-)
But it's worth it. Dozens of trees lie across the path, the forest is shady and dense. Almost a closed canopy, it's cooler than anywhere else, that's how you imagine a jungle. The chirping of birds and the rotting trees everywhere. Great thing, rare beetles are sure to be happy.I would be personally happy if the Spessart had many more such areas so that forests can develop without human intervention.

Today's little round led us, with our rental dog Max, up to the Stengerts. The somewhat longer ascent is softened by a beautiful sea of rocks, really nice to look at the rock formations. Once at the top, we enjoyed the beautiful view of the 22 meter high Dr. Hönlein tower. It was opened on May 23, 1937 with a good 100 steps by the Spessart Association. The building was given as a gift to the community of Schweinheim and, with its incorporation in 1939, to the city of Aschaffenburg. We continued in the direction of the Gailbach soccer field. From there back, in the direction of Schweinheim, on the Gailbach side of the Stengert. Past the Noris wall and other rocks. At Buntberg / Grauberg we came out of the forest to make a short detour to the wild horse enclosure. From there back to Schweinheim.
Great round, with lots of fresh green and flowering meadows.

The round today began at the hiking car park in the north of Alzenau. From there it went on beautiful paths, through the wonderful fresh green forest to the Barbarossa spring, with a small lake and hut. There is also a rattle mill behind the lake, I didn't even know 😊. The alpaca farm is not far from the source. These animals are really cute. Then it went on to the entrance ditch, above this ditch a beautiful narrow path leads to the Alzenauer Klappermühlchen. Great to find something in the middle of the forest. Then the path led on to the Antonius grotto and from there back to the parking lot.
Top round on many paths and trails, with almost no wide gravel paths.

Today we started in Wiesen am Friedhof, from there we went uphill to the beautiful Kreuzkapelle. From there, unfortunately over wide forest paths, to Dr.-Karl-Kihn-Platz. Here, a hut and seating invite you to rest. The forest roads then stretched to the Wiesbüttsee. There was a lot going on at the lake today, with this wonderful weather 🌞. Passing the Wiesbüttmoor, it went up to the highest point in the Wiesens district. Then further down into the village, past the Wiesener castle and church back to the parking lot.
Great hike, recommended.

After work, today we went on the culture trail "In Obernau, the sky is blue ..."
Nice tour around and through the Obernau district, with a reward ice cream in the ice cream parlor :-).
Unfortunately, Komoot did not record the first few hundred meters from the parking lot.

Today we went to the chess flowers in the Sinngrund. Start was in Obersinn from there we ran to the Sinnwiesen to look at the chess flowers 🌷. A great thing, these flowers. We continued in the direction of Jossa and across the forest back to the starting point.
