Abenteuer 2 – Tag 1: vom Col de la Schlucht zum Lac Vert in den Vogesen
Ford Weekend Adventures planned a hike.
October 8, 2020
A trip to the Vosges is always a dream: In the low mountain range in eastern France, a contrasting landscape, impressive views and beautiful hiking trails await you. And all of this only shortly after the German-French border. Reason enough to cross the Rhine again this weekend. The starting point of this hike is the Auberge de Schantzwasen, a great place to stay overnight with extra charm.To get in the mood for the almost 14-kilometer round, you hike through the picturesque landscape and then reach the Les escaliers des Hirschsteine. The metal stairs rise steeply on the rocks - nothing like up with you. Now it is not far to the Col de la Schlucht, a pass in the Vosges at 1,139 meters above sea level. After a short detour to the famous point, a wonderful hiking trail up to the Tanet begins. Enjoy the fantastic panorama that accompanies you on your way to the summit. You can hardly get enough of this view.You have now mastered the challenging part of the hike. The path leads you downhill to Lac Vert, which with its green water blends in like a fairytale into the forest landscape. After a short break, it is not far to your starting point. A hearty Vesper with French specialties is already waiting for you.
