Hiking Highlight (Segment)
Right at the entrance you have to overcome a small height difference with a ladder. Continue straight on for a few meters until the path reaches a cliff face. Between moss pad and fern plants again a ladder must be used. The jagged, several meters high Buntsandsteinfelswand is accompanied by a path that meanders between mossy boulders. If a gap in the forest cover opens up in the steep slope, then you can throw deep views into the Nagold valley. Deadwood lies or stands around, giving the impression of wild ennoblement. In fact, the path is reminiscent of comparable climbs in the Alps.

The path sounds more exciting than it is. The "Alpine" section is relatively short, followed by a longer monotonous forest path on the way to the castle ruins, which quickly makes you forget the beautiful impression of the Alpine flair.
There are much nicer trails in the overall context of the Black Forest.
