    A beautiful gorge to hike through, with lots of places for individual rest. In the opposite direction, you can eat and take a break in the castle mill. All in all, also suitable for families with children. After rain it can be a bit muddy, which makes it difficult for young children.

    Pure nature. As you can see in the picture good slip resistance required.

    The Gauchach rises south of Oberbränd and flows into the Wutach above the Wutach mill. The gorge has remained close to nature due to the steep slopes and the difficult access.The gorge has an overwhelming primeval landscape with romantic waterfalls and unspoilt forests. It is an unforgettable experience for every hiker.

    Very nice way for sure-footed hikers. But there are almost everywhere possibilities to hold on (steel ropes on the rock face, etc.)
    In the winter a bit more adventurous for it very quiet, in some places, however, the paths are flooded.

    Not as crowded as the Wutachschlucht and not less beautiful. We recommend!

    Compared to the Wutachschlucht few heavily visited but still (or because of it) very worthwhile.

    Terrific. Who is an early riser, should go with the sunrise, ideally from the northern entrance of the Gauchach direction Wutachschlucht. Because this is how you always have the sun in front of you and the play of light in the water and the trees becomes an unforgettable trip through one of the most beautiful Grand Canyons in the region. Incidentally, in the Gauchach Gorge, halfway up, you will find the Burgmühle, a small idyllic rest stop.

    The Gauchach is for me personally the nicer part of the gorge! Here you often walk very close to the water, sometimes it is even necessary to walk over stones washed by water. Often, the forest gives the impression of a jungle and everything seems a little more and more original.

    The Gauchach Gorge can be nicely combined with the Wutach Gorge and the Engesch Gorge as an approximately 10km circular route (Three Gorges Path).Similar to the Wutach Gorge, you shouldn't hike there when it is raining or shortly after it has rained, as many places are very muddy. In some passages it can be dangerous.
