The Hörschbach Gorge has been a 46.4 hectare nature reserve since March 1995!
An approx. 2km long hiking trail (path) leads through the sometimes narrow and unspoilt gorge, through water or over bridges, from the lower "Front Waterfall" (5m drop height) to the upper "Rear Waterfall" (12m drop height).The "rear waterfall" was designated as a natural monument in 1965 with an area of 20 hectares (50m below and 50m above)!
Extensive natural monuments should not be larger than 5ha, which is why an NSG was applied for for the eponymous gorge ...www2.lubw.baden-wuerttemberg.de/public/abt2/dokablage/oac_12/vo/1/1208.htmwww2.lubw.baden-wuerttemberg.de/public/abt2/dokablage/oac_12/wuerdigung/1/1208.htmde.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hörschbach_(Murr)

The so-called "Bachweg" through the Hörschbach Gorge is currently (2021) closed!You should inquire about the current situation beforehand on the homepage of the city of Murrhardt: murrhardt.de/de/Tourismus-und-Freizeit/Naturpark-Wald-und-Natur/Naturschoenheiten/HoerschbachschluchtHighly frequented during the holiday periods and when the weather is great!

The Hörschbach Gorge is always worth a hike. Recommended only with sturdy shoes. And if possible, then avoid the weekend, because then unfortunately it will be completely overrun. Parking spaces are bursting at the seams. On the paths and in the gorge it is almost like at the weekly market.

Absolutely spectacular hiking highlight. Sturdy shoes are an absolute must. Don't even think about walking through the gorge in sneakers. You often have to go through the water, over slippery stones and very narrow paths. But it's definitely worth it. Unfortunately a bit overcrowded on the weekends. Avoid parking spaces in Murrhardt, as you can only park there for up to 2 hours.

It is worthwhile to start walking (in the morning or in the late afternoon), with us starting time 8:45 there was almost nothing going on at 11:30 it was always full, it was then no longer relaxed, at the moment the direct bridges are being renewed, renovated because they were were rotten.Otherwise a great hiking trail with beautiful nature
