    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.

    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

    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.
