Südschwede went for a hike.

    Sometimes it took a longer journey for a hike. Read more about the Schlichtemklamm by other Komootlers and seen pictures, including Andythecat and Wolfgang Müller and many others.
    Parked on Butschhofweg at the entrance of the Schischemklamm in the immediate vicinity of the sports field. Parking for free.
    First across a meadow that soon turns into a forest. Gradually the path narrowed. At 2.9 km steep ascent to the Irslingen castle ruins. Not much is left of the castle, however, an information board about the history of those in Urslingen hangs on the ruins. The prospect is modest. Another steep descent to the road - but careful, greasy, sticks would help. Down over a bridge and the actual Schischemklamm begins. From kilometers 3.3 to 4.3 you go through the valley with some small waterfalls, past limestone cliffs. At the Ramsteiner Mühle we leave the valley and go to the plateau which is soon to be reached. Now the 4 kilometer long section begins on asphalt and little shade. Past Hofgut Ramstein, we follow the dirt roads in the direction of Hardthausen. On the plateau, however, there are beautiful views of the edge of the Alb, including the Plettenberg and the elevator tower in Rottweil. The asphalt section ends at the end of Harthausen and goes into a very damp narrow path that leads us to the Schenkenbach. We follow this brook downstream and the rushing of the brook accompanies us. Two fords follow - which can be bypassed via bridges for pedestrians and cyclists. After about 1.8 kilometers we leave the valley of the Schenkenbach and it goes up to the castle ruins of Schenkenburg. Not much is left of this ruin either, but the view is more beautiful than from the Irslinger ruin. We descend again and cross the street directly, it goes uphill. After a few hundred meters, don't miss the junction! Shortly thereafter, some serpentines follow that bring us back up. After a few minutes we reach the Tischfelsen with a beautiful view of the Neckar valley with Epfendorf and Altoberndorf. Here a bench (without a table) is available. Further through the forest because we will soon leave again. We pass the edge of the field and cross the new path. Here is a hall cross. On the other side of the street, don't take the path at the Steigbrunnen - delicious water - but continue along the edge of the field. This path is hardly visible. At kilometer 14.4 there is another reference to the Kapfkreuz. The path was blocked during my visit after felling work with trees - all over the place - so I had to do some climbing! After 400 m of climbing I reached the Kapfkreuz. Here is a beautiful view of the Neckar and Epfendorf. There is also a wayside shrine next to this Kapfkreuz. The way into the valley again over felled trees. At kilometer 15.1 I reached the path that should bring me down into the valley. And look there: the path here was closed due to felling work! One should explain to the forest workers that there are two sides not only with medals but also with hiking trails! Well, got through unscathed and the further way was no longer a challenge.
    Finally, the following notes:
    1. Many parts of the path are narrow, sloping and muddy - the risk of slipping is very high - speak from experience!
    2. On the plateau a very nice piece without shadow!
    3. No shorts or short-sleeved shirts or T-shirts. During my visit, stinging nettles as high as a man over many meters!

    Were almost in my home country 😊 If you had known, I would have joined you for hiking. If you came from the Schenkenburg, crossed the main road, then you could have taken the path down to the right and walked a beautiful path just after Epfendorf. I installed it last time and you would have been spared some stinging nettles and forest work. I'll send you a screenshot.

    Patrick Göser, pensioner bride, Britta, not being able to walk for three months is tough bread - if you like to do it! Imagine, a 16 year old is forbidden to use the Playstation for three months - I don't think we worry about what's going on - there would be a world, oh what am I saying, that the universe would go under.
    The first two tours were rather shorter, yesterday longer, push me up. Maybe I can still do the 20s next week. So it should be good and I should be satisfied. At the moment symptom-free!

    I can understand it, because at the moment I was totally immobilized and before that I had been in pain all year long. I just hope for a better 2022.
