The Monbach is on the main strand 9 km long stream on the eastern edge of the northern Black Forest, which flows between Bad Liebenzell and Unterreichenbach from the right into the middle Nagold. From the confluence of its source streams the Monbach flows through the nature reserve Monbach, Maisgraben and St. Leonhardquelle and the nature reserve of the same name. The protected areas essentially comprise the wildly romantic forest gorge, which the Monbach has been digging into the sandstone benches for around 350,000 years, and where it forms numerous small crashes. Purpose of protection is the preservation and protection of a unique geological source formation in Muschelkalk (St. Leonhardquelle) with their typical and species-rich animal and plant communities and the preservation and protection of the steep, rock-covered "Felsenmeer" slopes of the valley bottom and the water cascades of Buntsandsteinschlucht of Monbach their species-rich, the ravine and Hochstaudenwald überleitenden fern fir beech forest.

Beautiful nature trail that runs right along the stream. The stream has to be crossed in several places. The path is located directly in the protection of the forest, so it is easy to do even on warm days. You can only walk the path, there is no possibility for anything with wheels.

Safe footwear helps if you have to cross the water again and again on - usually wide - stones. But the landscape is breathtakingly beautiful. Children also have fun here when they can play by the water, on the stones or on the fallen tree trunks.
