    Anyone who's ever on the cart must necessarily walk the root path to the top of the Staufens. The rather challenging path runs through a beautiful mountain forest. As the name suggests, you have to climb over roots all the time, which makes the Wandering Spirit even more exciting and keeps you going. When I walked this trail, I wished the trail would never stop. But after a good 50 minutes, you are finally at the destination: the top of the Stauf. It is a rather low peak, but that does not mean that you have no view. On the contrary, from the top you have a fantastic view of the Rhine Valley and Lake Constance.
    How to get to the root path: From the cart track mountain station you have to walk first direction Staufenspitze. At the second intersection, the root path is already on the trail sign turn off. After a few minutes, the turnoff comes, where the white-blue-white root path begins.

    If you have the opportunity to visit the cart during the week can z.Z. 17,00 € a ascent and descent incl. Lunch (dish of the day is valid for the whole week and is offered in three variants). The offer can be found on the website. Also this year, the viewing platform under the restaurant was put into operation.

    Nice panoramic restaurant (of course with a great view) with a large terrace and for the children there is a playground. The staff is also very friendly and accommodating. I can only recommend.

    The steep root path is only for experienced hikers with sturdy shoes.

    Attention some ways from the cart valley station to the mountain station are not (anymore) available or locked. That means not only relying on the GPS track in the tours. When I saw that things could not go on, I had to walk back and take the cable car. But there are certainly still ways to the mountain station are still good to walk.
    If you keep that in mind, the hike to and around the cart is beautiful and really recommended. However, most are demanding and only for experienced hikers. I had a really great hiking day there.
