The Nordwaldkammweg was created around 1910 by the German Bohemian Forest Association. During the interwar period (1st Republic until 1945), the Nordwaldkammweg ran partly on Austrian and partly on Czech territory.

The 5th edition (1929) of the "Guide to the Bohemian Forest" describes the course of the ridge trail from west to east:
Schwarzkoppe - Tannaberg - Gewintzy - Osser - Eisenstein - Stubenbach - Pürstling - Lusen - Kurschada - Dreisessel - Glöcklberg - Untermoldau - Friedberg - Hohenfurth - Rosenberg.


The original Nordwaldkammweg trail therefore started in Rosenberg/Rozmberk on the Vltava. Reason enough to route variant III via the old starting point.
The 40 km long variant III of the North Forest Ridge Trail branches off from the North Forest Ridge Trail II north-east of Zettwing/Cetviny near Sinetschlag/Dolní Příbraní, runs north of it
and rejoins variant II south of Hohenfurt/Vyssi brod near Frauenthal/Frantoly. The trail leads through the green belt, is marked with Czech signs and the addition NWKW III
The use of GPS data or maps freely downloadable from the Alpine Club is recommended. A detailed description of the 3 daily stages of the Nordwaldkammweg III can be found in the guidebook "Nordwaldkammweg - Weitwandern im Grenzland" published by the Freistadt Alpine Club and available online/offline at Outdooractive.
