After a short stretch of the Elbe cycle path, the trail leads into the Eichhörnchengrund and after about 500 meters reaches the oldest functioning model mill in Germany, the Schulze Mill. Ascending, you reach Röhrsdorf and from there into the Saubach valley.

Then it goes back to Constappel and with the ferry again over the Elbe.
