Hiking Highlight (Segment)
A nature reserve of special kindness. The eye can hardly see enough, if one wanders through the Buchenbachtal. Here photographers, dogs and hikers get their money's worth. Here nature has done a great job. In order to reach the meadows of the meandering arches, elaborate stone bridges were built, which are still used today by the farmers. These small arch bridges accompany the hiker to the mouth in the Murr at Burgstall.

The Buchenbach rises in the mountains and is a tributary of the Murr. The particularly scenic Buchenbachtal lies between the village of Weiler zum Stein and Burgstall, where the beech stream flows into the Murr. The underflow from Steinächle along with the valley flanks, for which the 118 hectare Buchenbachtal nature reserve was established, is under special protection. It is to protect the Wiesental from foreign use, to reintroduce the deciduous forest and to protect rare plant and animal species in the bank woodland. Particularly characteristic of the Buchenbachtal are the stone arched bridges, which are still used today by the farmers for the achievement, care and harvest of the meadows.
