Hiking Highlight (Segment)
The Jägersteig is a gourmet trail, not too long (13.6km) and not too steep (270m HM). It is suitable in all seasons (yes even with snowshoes possible). First half consists of a single trail mostly in the forest with soft soil. The roads are now already overgrown, but you can still fight through * grin *. The second part goes along the Schluchsee, with some beautiful views of the lake incl. A little bit more remote swimming. Depending on the season, this Jägersteig is well visited and it can come to convoy traffic :-). It recommends
afterwards a small boat trip or a stop, for example in the sub-Krummenhof, you can also combine.

Our hiking trail leads on the old "Jägerpfad" up to the Ahaberg. Continue on the historic "Grenzweg" to the Bildstein. There, a geological rarity awaits us for the Southern Black Forest - and a unique view: with a clear view, the view across the lake to the 3,614 m high Tödi in the Swiss Alps. After the descent, it goes back from Aha along the Schluchseeufer. It may be that two worlds clash here: first lonely paths in the woods and then the much-used lakeside path. But you can also find solitude here: in the early morning, when the sun rises over the lake, or on foggy November days, when the lake unfolds its own magic.

Southern Black Forest
A wolf has settled permanently in Schluchsee

The complete premium hiking trail 'Jägersteig' is a little over 11km long. It goes up about 230m and of course back down again. In theory, you can walk the trail in both directions and it is signposted in both directions.
If you start from Schluchsee, however, it is advisable to take the counter-clockwise direction. This has the advantage that you first go up and down the climb on the first half and have the 'strenuous' part behind you. The second half is then only the way back along the banks of the Schluchsee, where there are no significant meters of altitude to be overcome.
