07-Aug-2020 -- This the fourteenth and last of 14 CP visits made during a road trip through the
Czech republic and Germany.
The previous is N51 E12.
The first is N49 E14.
After a great breakfast at our hotel in Rehau we headed of to tackle the last
planned CP of the road trip. I had attempted this CP about 16 years ago using my old Geko
201 GPS device and for some reason it was bouncing all over the place and we could not find the
way and as we did not have much time we gave up, vowing to try again very soon. Michael was
4 years old at the time. Well, very soon had arrived !!
We parked the car at the Labyrinth car park but decided not to take the Labyrinth route as this
seemed longer, but using the GPS headed into the woods on a direct route. The distance was about
It was a hot gorgeous day, and we were feeling it as the terrain was up, up, up. Additionally
we somehow managed to end up on a track that veered away from the direction we wanted to go so
had to head directly to a trail above us that we could see on the GPS. This involved some steep
scrambling and some large rocks to overcome. But after we climbed over the rocks we realised
we were not alone, in fact there were families all around - we were obviously on the Labyrinth
trail. Following the GPS away from all the families we finally arrived at the CP. We took the
necessary photos and headed back towards the car. We decided that although the route we had
taken up was shorter, we would simply follow the Labyrinth trail back to the car park - it would
be slightly longer but much easier. And this we did. We did not stop to enjoy the various
Labyrinth features - we hadn't paid, after all - and arrived back at the car 30 minutes later.
That was the final CP of our great road trip. There followed an awful drive with lots of traffic
jams past Munich and on towards Salzburg but this did not detract from the great trip we had had.
I look forward to the next one !!
