Our hiking trails

A special feature of nature parks is that they are shaped by people. Nature experiences and relaxation in nature help us to recognize what needs to be protected. A good network of hiking trails and appropriate trail management are of great importance here.

Our job is to make the region tangible for hikers. This includes inventory recording, marking, maintaining and digitizing paths, developing new paths, directing visitors and much more.

In 2023 we received the “Quality Region Hiking Germany” seal. You'll find out what that means here.

Hiking parking spaces and hiking boards

Hiking parking spaces have been set up throughout the Kellerwald-Edersee Nature Park and can be recognized from the street by a blue traffic sign.

Once you have arrived at the hiking car park, several circular routes start from there, which are usually marked with numbers 1-3 or with their own topic-specific symbols. You can find information about the hiking trails and the region on the hiking boards that every parking lot is equipped with.

Parking in the hiking car parks is free of charge.

Runners and markers

So that you always know exactly where you are going, you will find regular information about the route along the way.

The marking signs are usually attached to marker runners, existing posts or trees. Look out early for intersections and forks!

Signpost and hiking map

You will also find these signposts throughout the nature park. They serve as orientation and give you the distances.

Of course, a classic hiking map is always practical. You can get these and many other hiking brochures Edersee Marketing.
