The Hoheward slag heap is a tailings pile in the Ruhr area. It was created from fills from the Recklinghausen II colliery, the Ewald colliery and the General Blumenthal/Haard colliery. Located between the towns of Herten and Recklinghausen, but mostly in the Hertener Mark, it forms the largest slag heap landscape in the Ruhr area, together with the Hoppenbruch slag heap and the nearby Emscherbruch central landfill in the neighbouring Resser Mark to the west. The highest point of the slag heap is reached at a height of 152.5 m above sea level. The Hoheward and Hoppenbruch slag heaps are part of the Route of Industrial Heritage and the Hoheward Landscape Park. Both tailings piles are owned by the Regionalverband Ruhr, which has taken over the land from Deutsche Steinkohle AG. As the project executing agency, he is responsible for the expansion of the Hoheward tailings pile. On a clear day, the Rhine Tower in Düsseldorf, about 50 km away, can be seen.

The route has been developed over a length of 2.5 km from the harbour to Orthlohstraße as a pedestrian and cycle path and was opened on this section in December 2008. The route is to be rededicated until its end at the Blumenthal slag heap in Oer-Erkenschwick.
