This trail is based on the trail that is published in a brochure by the 4 restaurant/hotels in Speicherz and Kothen. That trail however is 16 km long and for many people too long to walk. This trail, we called the Wasserscheide trail, is 9 to max. 11 km, depending on your possible additional walk(s) towards the Pilster rocks (die Felsen, about 400 m.) and the observation tower (Aussichtsturm, about 1.2 km).
You can start the Wasserscheide trail at hotel 'zum Biber'. This hotel/restaurant has a large Parking area behind the hotel (coming from the highway, just before the hotel you will find a small road to this parking). You can start your walk by having a coffee or finish there having lunch or diner in 'zum Biber'. Or stay for several days, we did.
The starting point on the map is about 300 m. from 'zum Biber' and leads you through the valley to Kothen. You will easily find the entrance of the path along road nr 27. If you also want to follow the available signs along the trail, then we advise you to look for signboard 'nr. 1'.
The main points of interest are:
1. the Pilsterquelle or Kothener Sauerbrunnen, a source of light sparkling water, when you just left Kothen (bring along a cup to drink this spring water; don't forget)
2. the Pilster rocks (basalt) just 200 m. after the water source (1.); a signboard points you to it (it says 100 m.)
3. the Watershed (Wasserscheide) of the Rhine and Weser; is in fact a mountain pass with picnic table
4. the solid and high Observation tower (Aussichtsturm) on the highest point of the trail (Mottener Haube, 577 m), where you can see the surrounding area (360 degrees); an additional walk of 2x 600 m. back and forth but really worth to do so
5. the very old border path/road between Hessen and Bavaria (Bayern) in the woods on the mountain ridge ..... with 'milestones' of the year 1729.
You will end at hotel/restaurant 'zum Biber' and your car on their Parking lot.

By the way, we walked both to the Pilster rocks (2) and Observation tower (4), which stretched the trail with 1,5 km. And we had a picnic lunch. So subtract at least 90 min., if you only want to walk the trail. But be aware, it is a 3,5 hours minimum walk.

The original 16 km trail you will find described in a brochure that is available in the 4 restaurant/hotels in Speicherz and Kothen. Ask for it, if you would like to walk through the woods south of Speicherz and Kothen, instead of walking through the valley as we did. But it will stretch your walk with an extra 4 to 5 km. However there are no additional points of interest on this 16 km trail.
