Ich bin 54 Jahre alt und komme aus Alpirsbach. Aus beruflichen Gründen ist das Zeitfenster zum Wandern ein wenig eng, daher steh ich normalerweise Sonntags um 05:00 Uhr auf und starte um 06:00 Uhr mit einem meiner Söhne von zu Hause.
Am einzigen Tag an dem ich ausschlafen könnte um diese Zeit aufzustehen ist echt mies, aber den Wald dann für sich zu haben ist einfach toll. Hasen, Rehe, Füchse sichten wir immer, einmal sogar einen Auerhahn.
Today it was again a largely freely planned hike. That means I have revised a hike published on komoot until I liked the route and key data.The start was in the parking lot just before Gutach, before the level crossing. Past beautiful Black Forest farms in the twilight it went from 330hm within the first 4 km up to 670hm. The navigation in the forest was easy, it was always the junction that went up the steepest.Back down again I soon reached the Westweg, which I followed to Hausach. I skipped Husen Castle this time, as I was only here three weeks ago. Walking along the edge of Hausach, I then hiked over the next ridge, through the Peterbauernhof, to Gutach Tower.At the pedestrian traffic light at the junction to Kirnbach I met the Hans-Jakob-Weg, which served as an entry point towards Gutach. Unfortunately there was no view of the Vogtsbauernhöfe on the paths I chose, but it was still nice. At 15 km I turned right, as planned, but only to find after 1 km that the path was overgrown with blackberry hedges. So everything, uphill, back again.Then I went down to Ramsbach on a paved side road to find another map error. The plan was embankment - bridge - parking lot, but that wouldn't work without a bridge. So I walked back along the Gutach towards the village and then, walking along the main road, I reached the parking lot.Good paths, only a few people, I liked it.

For this Sunday I have combined two hiking suggestions from the Black Forest National Park and added the Karlsruhe ridge.The start was at 6:40 a.m. at a small parking lot above the Ruhestein, which is free of charge. On the 1000m path, with a beautiful red dawn, it went around the Vogelskopf and then steep, at the end over the Xaver-Winkler-Steig, into the Gottschläge valley below the Karlsruhe ridge.
Here I should have slowed down a little, later, while climbing, my thighs trembled a little.Then it was only a short distance to the entrance via ferrata Karlsruher Grat and soon the summit cross could be seen. I then went over the main ridge to the Bosenstein and made a detour to the Brennter Schrofen viewpoint with its refuge.We continued over the Bosensteiner Alm, past the Kernhof / s’alte Lifthisli, to the Ruhestein National Park Center. After crossing the various access roads, I am on the Westweg, up the ascent of the ski slope, past the Euting-Grab, over the Wildseewegle down to the Wildsee. The descent was very demanding and rather uncomfortable to walk.At the Wildsee briefly to the sandy beach, took a photo, on the same route back up on the Westweg and on to the Darmstädter Hut. From here it got really crowded on the hiking trails, that's not my thing. So quickly on the Metaweg back to the Ruhestein and from there a little way up to the parking lot.Very nice tour, great views, highly recommended.

It is autumn! This morning it was dark (6:40 a.m.), not too warm (12 °) and quite humid (2 hours of rain)
But of course it was nice anyway! :-)This tour is well signposted as a connoisseur path, although I strayed off the right path at the beginning at Husen Castle, but only because I wasn't paying attention.
Nice route, varied paths, always interesting resting places, benches, and so on. Not only forest, but also open spaces.
The elevation profile is demanding, especially the last climb at km 12 hurts again.I liked it! I can only recommend the tour!

Today, with the best hiking weather, we went from Schönmünzach up to the Schurmsee, then a little further up to the Blindesee and back into the Murg Valley to Schönmünzach. A short rain shower on the way, when I put on the rain jacket it was over again.
In key words:
- Well-kept paths, mostly wide farm roads but with a sandy surface
- a lot of forest, few viewpoints
- the Schurmsee is an idyllic Karsee
But I wasn't really excited about it. It was all very nice, but somehow interchangeable. Start in the upper Murg Valley, up the mountain, one or two cirque lakes, down again.
Of course, I still enjoyed my Sunday morning hike. :-)

Sunday morning we started shortly before 7:00 a.m. in Fischerbach. On the first four kilometers it goes from 300hm to 700hm with increasing incline, in my case with increasing temperatures. That was demanding, that's how I like it.The paths were mostly good, some short sections were a bit overgrown. I always do that on freely planned hikes, but you don't meet a soul on these trails. Of course a lot through the forest, but varied through deciduous forest passages and some really great views.On the way back, at km 10.5, the “Schulrad-Menkes-Weg” is marked on komoot, which I had overlooked and would recommend planning it.A nice hike that I can recommend.

Today it was just a little round:
Wolfach Schlossblick (premium hiking trail)It goes uphill on very well-kept paths, continuously signposted, lookout points are rather rare, but there are a few nice views of Wolfach and Oberwolfach. A typical Black Forest phenomenon can often be found at the edge of the path: well-maintained benches pointing downhill, in places where you can just see trees. 20-30 years ago these were maybe nice vantage points, but unfortunately everything has (surprisingly) grown over in the meantime.The ascent to the Berghexenlandeplatz is not too long at 2 km and rewards the hiker with a great view. Then it goes past one of the chimneys of the Reutherberg tunnel to the St. Jakob Chapel. There was a service here this morning, so we couldn't visit. Now it's about 2 km back to Wolfach, the last section in the city center can also be bypassed via the forest.More so in the walk class, but recommendable.

So, the second tour started in Denkingen, below the Klippeneck, a small parking lot for hikers in the first serpentine up to the mountain. Right at the beginning it was really bitter, it was more flowing water than road, all the rainwater ran out of the Swabian Alb.But when the way slowly screwed up, it got much better. After a few "waves" to warm up, along the stations of a crossroads, the great ascent came. First very steep, then two loops to calm the hiker, then stairs, a lot of stairs, up to the Trinity Chapel. Here, of course, good activity and great views. From Dreifaltigkeitsberg it went, at times on the HW1, always along the edge, to the Klippeneck glider airfield. This section is very beautiful, quiet wet forests, great viewpoints. Directly at the glider airfield it goes back down to Denkingen, but the descent is easy to do. Incidentally, along a different way of the cross, for me as a "believer in the desert" (Protestant) a completely new experience. :-)Nice path, I can only recommend it, it should be dry for 3 days beforehand.

So, since I didn't know exactly whether my old bones would take part in a big tour, I had a simple but good idea: I chose two smaller premium hiking trails that were spatially together.The first tour started at 7 a.m. on a hiking car park between Dürbheim and Russberg. The sun was shining through the last foggy fields, it was wonderful! But unfortunately only for a short time, because from about km 2, below Risiberg, the paths became narrow, were almost overgrown and it was very slippery. It was a mistake to start after a rainy night!Then came the Kraftstein ruins, which were very nicely laid out, with a small model of the castle. In the further course of the way there were more "castle ruins", those were places in the forest where a castle should / could have stood. On steep paths it went into Ursental and on the other side steeply up again, the altitude difference was ok, but it was just not nice to walk. Past Russberg it went back to the parking lot.Sorry, not my way, so I cannot recommend it.

Connoisseur path - Gutacher Tälersteig with Moserstein loopStart Sunday morning in Gutach at the central parking lot at the corner of B33 / Kirchstrasse, ideal weather, it looked like rain. The entire tour leads over good paths and is well signposted. There is mostly quiet, a lot of forest and a few viewpoints.At the beginning it goes steadily uphill and after about 45 minutes the highest point was reached just below the Viehütte on Vogelbach. Then it went back down into the valley via Vogelbach and Steinenbach. Shortly before crossing the valley, I met the farmer and farm dog at the Oberrainbauernhof, both of whom were surprised that someone came by shortly before half past eight.On the other side of the valley, slowly increasing to the Hasenköpfle, then a little downhill to the Steinades Bühl lookout point and back up to the Moserstein. The detour to the Moserstein is optional and strenuous, but highly recommended. From here you can get back to the village in no time.Notes on taking over the tour:
Km 0.0: You can skip the few meters to the war memorial, I thought I would take photos before it might rain later.
Km 0.6: I took over the detour when I imported the gpx data, there is nothing here
Km 13.3: I went wrong on the Moserstein, don't imitate it

So, I took over this tour from Matthias, here is the link to the original:
komoot.de/tour/389630167It got off to a good start on Sunday morning, I had forgotten to set the alarm clock and only woke up at 8:00 a.m. I actually wanted to be on the road for almost two hours. The start in Schiltach was at 9:00 a.m., I parked at the train station.The way to the foot of the Dohlenbach was just the right thing to warm up and get into the "flow". Then things went uphill I don't even know how to express it politically correctly, so, freely based on Götz von Berlichingen: Lick me at the Ar ...! In contrast, Karlsruher Grat and Xanderklinge are kindergartens.In the area of the waterfall, the stream has to be crossed several times, that was really slippery and at the top crossing I didn't try to walk on the stones, but just stood in the water to get safely to the other side. At the top a good soul has stretched ropes, at this point I would like to thank you very much! This section of the route is very demanding and really great!Above the waterfall it went on very good paths over the Elmlisberg down into the Heubachtal. I was already on the way on the asphalt sections…. as a school bus driver…. with such a large omnibus :-) In Heubach it goes to the Auerhahn Inn (the "older ones" may still remember the TV report from the 90s) up to Teisenkopf. Here I had a great view of the rain wall in the next valley.IMMEDIATELY RE-PLAN FROM HERE!At about 11.7 km there was no longer a path where I wanted to go, but a field with waist-high plants. You can't go crosswise, you couldn't go on the edge, so from here I had to improvise and I also went a bit across the forest on the next path. Then it went down to the Heubach and back to Schiltach station without any problems.
