The deserted village of Hüstede, about 1.6 km north of Geseke was already in prehistoric times a settled area on the edge of a loess loam plateau. The village was situated on the so-called Huchte between the Geseker and Völmeder brooks, bordered to the west by Heringhausen, to the north by the village of Verne, to the east by Volmede and to the south by Geseke.

If you follow the cycle path in a northwesterly direction, you will pass through the Mönninghauser Bruch landscape conservation area to the village of Mönninghausen, which was already mentioned in documents in 1120, with the late Romanesque village church of St. Vitus from the 13th century, whose ground plan has the unusual shape of a Greek cross.

This predominantly open cultural landscape, characterized by agricultural land, is part of the Hellweg-Börde bird sanctuary, which has internationally important breeding populations of the Montagu's harrier, the marsh harrier and the corncrake. The area is also of particular importance for the Mornell's and the Golden Plover as well as for the Red and Black Kites.
