The adventurous and scenic hike to the "Snoring Cliffs" is one of the most popular routes from the Harz town of Elend.
The first part of the hike from Elend to the Barenberg is a demanding section, but can be managed with a basic level of fitness. Arrived at the top of the Barenberg, it's a relaxed walk on the forest floor to the snoring cliffs. The further way over the Mauseklippen to Schierke is a rooted ground and goes slightly downhill. From time to time you can see Brocken mountain and the Wurmberg mountain. After you have crossed the village of Schierke, hike slightly uphill again in the direction of Helenenruh. After you have reached the Helenenruh, it goes over the "old bobsleigh run" into the valley to Elend.
