Utzenfeld - Knöpflesbrunnen - Todtnau
WanderMicha went for a hike.
July 17, 2021
The starting point for this little round is the hiking car park on the road to the Wiedener Eck, shortly after leaving Utzenfeld.From the start it goes evenly upwards, first over an asphalt and then gravel road, then over quiet paths over the pastures and through the forest. You pass some beautiful viewpoints into the Wiesental, the most spectacular is the view from the Tannharzfelsen (be careful, it's a bit off the path).Opposite the junction to the rock, a barely visible path leads through beautiful meadows to the Knöpflesbrunnen height at approx. 1120m, from here you have a remarkable 360 ° panorama.A little below is the Almgasthof - unfortunately you can also go up here except for the last 100m, so it is accordingly full today and I prefer to postpone my break to the grill hut on the descent to Todtnau ...A wonderful forest path leads here from the Knöpflesbrunnen, and then continues through the holiday village and alternating with the access road down to Todtnau.Here you come to the former Todtnauerli railway line, which incidentally is also a lovely walk from Todtnau down to Zell / Wiesental (you just have to watch out for the numerous cyclists).In Schlechtnau you can cool off your overheated feet a little, shortly afterwards you have the choice between the railway line and a path slightly above, which is, however, quite overgrown.In Utzenfeld you finally leave the Todtnauerli and have about 1km over asphalt to the parking lot - the very last piece through the woods is a real obstacle course, here you should perhaps better walk the sea route to the country road ...Otherwise, however, a pleasant tour with some very beautiful viewpoints👍
