Schwarzwald Tourismus planned a hike.
March 23, 2020
The second stage on the ZweiTälerSteig begins at the highest point of the long-distance hiking trail. That's why it's going down a lot today. From the Kandel you walk down this 25 kilometer long route into the valley of the Wilden Gutach.Let the wonderful panorama of the Kandel work on you again before you start the day. Then you leave the summit area over the eastern ridge. The path leads you a little way through the forest until the trees clear up and you look at the deeply cut Simonswald valley. The wildest part of ZweiTälerLand is in front of you. You will soon hear the Zweribach waterfalls rushing. The water falls down into the valley over two steps. You follow the watercourse and hike further down to the Wilden Gutach.Now, for a change, it goes uphill again: The path leads you through the ever narrowing pond gorge. You walk along the bank of the pond brook, which makes its way to the Wilder Gutach. Then you leave the stream and climb a little further up to the Hintereck hut.Now it goes down again, partly on quite steep paths, until you stand on the banks of the famous Wilden Gutach. At the Gasthaus Engel in Obersimonswald you can recharge your batteries for the last few kilometers. Along the banks of the Wilder Gutach, you then cover it back to your destination in Simonswald.
