Tips

  • Tibor 🥾🌿☀️

    Located very close to the Tobel Gorge, but the two gorges cannot be compared at all. The Bodenbach Gorge has great hiking trails and runs almost continuously on forest floor. While the rock formations in the Tobel Gorge are more impressive.

    The "Bodenbach Gorge":
    - It is said to be one of the wildest and most unspoilt gorges in the Swabian Forest
    - therefore the way goes "only" above, so that the blade is preserved!
    - uphill or downhill on narrow paths and stairs
    - partly steep valley walls
    - Surefootedness is important
    - Good shoes, possibly hiking sticks are recommended
    - very attractive!

    The actual Bodenbachschlucht is just 1.4 kilometers long and easy to walk on. The route is steadily rising slightly and ends at the Seewiese car park

    Length of the route: 8 km
    Good walking shoes are essential.
    Striking rock formations, fallen stone blocks and trees are characteristic of the nature reserve.
    With the Bodenbach Gorge one of the wildest and most unspoilt blades can be hiked through in the Swabian Forest.
    The starting point for the hike through the Bodenbach gorge is northeast of Vorderbüchelberg at the Seewiese hiking car park. The entrance is via a forest path (red bar) to the west of the crossroads, from which there are further paved forest and hiking trails.

    After just 100 m you can take a look down into the great canyon. One descends via stairs, secured narrow paths and small bridges.

    The valley walls are steep, with outstanding rocks and ledges, from which blocks repeatedly break and plunge into the gorge.
    The surrounding forest, a gorge forest rich in tannins with many mosses and ferns typical of the damp, cool Keuperklingen. The nature of the forest comes very close to the original forest pictures before human use and transformation began.

    After around 700 m, the gorge becomes "tamer" and the dirt path meets a forest path that runs a little uphill and then runs parallel over the gorge on a slope. Around a ridge it then leads gently downhill to the neighboring gorge of the Dentelbach.

    Everything has been said about the gorge. It is also great in winter with the many icicles. Of course, going "even more difficult".

    Surefootedness is a prerequisite for a visit to the Bodenbach Gorge. Caution is also advisable in damp weather, since paths and stones can become very slippery.

    Surefootedness is absolutely necessary, as you sometimes have to climb and the stones can be slippery.

    Always beautiful in the Bodenbach gorge.
    Narrow paths, you should be sure-footed.

    not quite as beautiful as the Tobel Gorge - you actually always walk above the actual gorge

    Very beautiful gorge through which one comes on the Georg-Fahrbach-Weg Criesbach (Ingelfingen) -Uhlbach (Stuttgart).

    Beautiful, natural gorge - with the exception of the stone man. But that's also very good!

    Bodenbachschlucht nature reserveThe area was designated as a nature reserve under the protection area number 1081 by ordinance of the Stuttgart regional council of December 8, 1979. The CDDA code is 81430 and corresponds to the WDPA ID.
    ...
    The reserve is located approximately 1.2 kilometers south of Wüstenrot and 2.5 kilometers northeast of Spiegelberg. It is located in the natural area 108-Swabian-Franconian Forest Mountains within the natural spatial main unit 10-Swabian Keuper-Lias-Land.
    ...
    The main protection purpose is the preservation of the impressive parlor sandstone blade in the Löwenstein Mountains with a rare fern and moss flora.
    The Bodenbach Gorge is one of the wildest and most unspoilt gorges in the Swabian Forest. Provided you have good footwear, you can descend into the magnificent rocky gorge via stairs, narrow paths and small bridges secured by railings. The valley walls are steep, with protruding rocks and ledges from which blocks break off and fall into the gorge. The forest, rich in conifers, with many mosses and ferns, comes very close to the original forest appearance before human use and remodeling began. After around 700 m the gorge becomes "tamer" and the earth path meets a forest path. Around a ridge, a path leads gently downhill to the neighboring Dentelbach gorge.
