Dream Loop "Copper Jasper Trail"

On mostly earthy, natural paths through shady forests and open meadow landscape, there is interesting information about the namesakes of the trail: copper and jasper. Even today, there are red, yellow and green jasper sites hidden along the way. After a longer section of forest, the view turns to the Hunsrückland. Above Hintertiefenbach - also known as powder hole - a plaque informs you that rare orchids grow here.

In the Fischbach Valley, the hiking trail runs in the forest in a wide bend around Fischbach towards the copper mine (access road 800). The “dream loop” and the “little dream loop” “Fischbach copper traces” run along the same trail for a longer stretch. Here you will find information about copper and mining. Then we enter the Hosenbachtal Valley. Between 1851 - 1855, six agate loops are proven to have been erected on the Hosenbach stream.

In 2013, the hiking trail won 2nd place in the vote for “Germany's most beautiful hiking trail”.
