At over 450 m, the treeless Struffeltkopf rises up between Rott and Roetgen, which is already marked on historical maps as being an area of heathland in the middle of forested surroundings.
This unique biosphere is home to numerous rare plants and animals. Typical of the Struffelt is the moor grass. The long stems with violet-grey ears used to be used as pipe cleaners, since the knot-free stems did not get stuck in the neck of the pipe when they were pulled through.
The walk along the Struffelt route leads through the water supply area of the Dreilägerbach dam. Numerous signs explain the special features of the surrounding landscape.
A gentle incline, interesting route guidance and the length of just 9.7 km make the route ideal for the whole family.
