Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)
A small, slightly busy side road leads through the partly gorge-like valley of the Wilder Gutach. The route starts at the first hairpin bend of the highway to Furtwangen. First, it goes down a few meters, then the road runs gently rising in the valley floor to the Hexenlochmühle. At Hexenloch you can either turn right towards St.Märgen or left towards Furtwangen. Both alternatives are recommended, here is the alternative up to St. Märgen described. The increase then increases significantly, but not steeper than 10%.
In order to enjoy the beautiful landscape properly, it is advisable to drive uphill, downhill you should look to the road, as it is very narrow and winding.

During the "flowering months" and in the summer this is really a fantastic beautiful part of the Schwarzwald ... We cycled this part in early August 2020, unfortunately there was felling work on the forest, which meant that the passage was closed. Secretly went through (Sunday, so probably a rest day) and enjoy a breathtaking piece of cycling area with surprisingly little car traffic. Highly recommended!
