Conveniently, once you begin to follow posted signage, you are unlikely to get lost. That is, unless you miss a sign or one is uprooted and lying in the grass, which was the case only once on my trip. I picked it up, and spent a couple minutes turning it around in a slapstick which way is which manner before setting it back down and again referencing my map to make sure I picked the right path.
One village in particular had a pretty nice roadside attraction, that being the Schierwaldenrath railroad depot. Here, a still-operational steam locomotive resides and makes weekly trips through a few of the neighboring villages. There is a cafe there and one of the signs even advertised bicycle rentals.
