Schwarzwald Tourismus planned a hike.
April 8, 2020
With the rock tour of Elzach you can leave everyday life far behind and look forward to a varied hike with the best views.You start in Oberprechtal and hike up a narrow meadow path on the edge of the forest to the northern slope. Soon the path becomes level and leads you across cow pastures and flowering meadows. Occasionally rocks appear in the grass, then you see it towering like a tower over the tree tops: the Huber rock. Once you have climbed up, you look westwards across the Wittenbach valley into the Elztal valley, and eastwards through the Steinenbach valley to the Gutach valley. Spicy air of the pine forest surrounds you and you continue walking towards the entrenchment. Over three hundred years ago, the people of Wuerttemberg built the dilapidated walls to protect them from the French troops.You can enjoy the most beautiful view of the Elztal from the Pfauenfelsen with its summit cross, then you descend back into the valley and past the Lampertshütte. If you like, you can take a last snack break and soak up the tranquility of the forest again.
Fantastic tour! Now, in mid-May, the yellow brooms are blooming! That gives the already beautiful tour a special kick!
