March 23, 2020
On the fourth stage, the ZweiTälerSteig more than lives up to its name. On the almost 24 km long route you can clearly see the differences between the two valleys on the left and right of the Elz: rather wild and original in the eastern part, more gentle and lovely in the western part.Start is in Wittenbach in the Oberprechtal. Right at the start, the path climbs up to the Huber rock. Once you've made the climb, the challenging part of the day is already behind you. Once at the top you have a wonderful view over the Elztal and the dense forests of the Middle Black Forest. There is still a bit of a climb up to the Prechtaler Schanze at 836 meters. The facility used to serve as a defense against the French.You walk through a varied landscape to the Landwasser corner. From there you have a fantastic view in Elztal, there is hardly more Black Forest. You can replenish your energy reserves in the inn.From now on you will see the other face of the two-valley trail: lush mountain meadows, scattered farms and gentle hills determine the landscape. You hike across the broad ridge between the foothills of the Kinzig valley and the side valleys of the Elz. If you keep your eyes open, you can discover the ruins of the former Heidburg on a mountain cone. Now it is not far to your today's destination of Höhenhausen.
