The BUND local group Lippetal established the "Hedge nature trail in Kesseler" north-east of Lippetal-Herzfeld in the early 1990s with the cooperation of the community of Lippetal.
The original idea was to present typical elements of an evolved cultural landscape of the Münsterland and to draw attention to a landscape that has been created by human activity and in part can only be preserved in its current state as a result.
The nature trail contains explanations about more than 20 native woody species and about a Landwehr that is still partly visible from the relief. Over a length of 3.7 km, the nature trail stretches from the eastern edge of Herzfeld through the northern part of the village to the district of Kesseler. Part of the trail follows the Roman route.
The hedge nature trail uses simple descriptions to draw attention to the diversity of native woody species, their overall ecological value, and their importance for the creation and preservation of the hedges. It is laid out along well-maintained field paths and is therefore easily accessible to all interested parties.
