January 30, 2020
The second stage follows an elongated mountain range and leads you up to the Hohloh. On the 988 meter high mountain there is a lookout tower that offers you a fabulous view of the northern Black Forest. But already on the way there you always have great panoramas.You start your tour full of energy in the health resort Dobel. From here it goes gently uphill on comfortable forest paths. The first panoramic view awaits you at the Schweizererkopfhütte, which is located slightly below the actual summit. From the small hiking hut you have a great view of the Gasibach and Albtal.The trail meanders over the forested mountain ridge. On the way you will pass several hiking huts and rest areas, which often have a beautiful view of the surrounding landscape. After a good 15 kilometers you can stop at the Kaltenbronn in the Hotel Sarbach.Around the Hohloh, the highest point of today's stage, you hike on wooden footbridges through an extensive, untouched raised bog. The summit itself is densely forested, but thanks to the stone and almost 30 meter high observation tower, you can still enjoy a fantastic panorama.From the Hohloh you walk steadily downhill until you reach the stage goal Forbach.
