Tips

  • Philipp Wirth

    Even if it has not rained for a long time, it can be very slippery in places in the narrow gorge. Surefootedness and good footwear are a must.

  • Hi ~🌸🏔☀️

    Hiking through the gorge is challenging. Most of the trails are very wet and slippery, so caution is advised on the super narrow trails.

  • Hi ~🌸🏔☀️

    The narrow paths through the gorge are regularly slippery even in dry weather. Smooth and moist limestones can also be dangerous for experienced hikers. After prolonged rains, landslides, rockfalls and path breaks and the resulting closures are possible.

    Good footwear recommended. Narrow muddy paths on partly steep slopes.

    The Engeschlucht is very romantic and wild. Definitely sturdy footwear required, especially in damp weather!

    The gorge is actually always wet and already difficult to hike, narrow bridges sometimes high then again down. After rainfall you really sink in the mud.

    Last effort to finish. Along the dry bed of a creek. A bridge like from an Indiana Jones movie.

    Still a secret tip - Can be combined with Wutach and Gauach Gorge to form a Three Gorges Trail

    If one has already walked from Bachheim the Wutachschlucht and the Gauchachschlucht, one can do without the very loamy and rather unspectacular Engeschlucht also well. At the Burgmühle forks the way and you can take an alternative route.

    despite all due caution: a beautiful valley

    Here it looks like in the jungle. Trees are criss-cross. The path is sometimes very slippery and it goes down steeply.

    Insider tip is perhaps an exaggeration, but in contrast to the nearby Wutach Gorge, it is nowhere near as crowded.

    An exciting ascent always along the slope. But be careful after prolonged rainfall. The path then turns into an ankle-deep "chewing gum" mass and that, as written, on a steep slope. You have to "like" mud and, above all, be very sure-footed on this type of terrain.
