cross the street and continue on path „X1“ through the wide forest areas of the Antfeld Forest. Soon you reach the village of Esshoff, pass a parking site for hikers and continue straight ahead. When entering the village, you turn left once and continue walking on „X1“ across the village. Then you go on through meadows („X1“), until you reach the „Altenbührener Mühle“ (mill of Altenbühren) (closed on Mondays and Tuesdays). The inn affords itself for a meal.

Behind the village and already back in the forest, you turn slightly leftwards onto „A1“ in the direction of Grimmlinghausen. The Lourdes-grotto in the village centre can be the place for another short rest.
