According to Saxon criteria this isn't "hiking" but "going for a walk" but... okay.

The forests of Pöhlberg offer a varieties of routes and trails for hiking respective walking. The easiest way up is the road but there is a network of trails through the forests, up and around the mountain, and all this within walking distance from the city centre. Pöhlberg is a popular leisure ground among locals.

The mountain is of volcanic origin and consists of basalt. A former quarry on the Western side close to the road has remarkable formations of basalt columns known as the "Butter Barrels" - with some imagination you'll see the barrels.

There are some theme trails that explain certain features of the landscape, like the "rose hip trail" about the hedges on the open slopes.
