Ich bin 53 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 meinem älteren Sohn 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.

This Sunday hike had the motto autumn, the start was "only" 6.45 am, a flashlight was there.
In my opinion, the middle path is probably the least known and most underrated long-distance hiking trail of the Black Forest Association. From Freudenstadt we went through the Teuchelwald to Zwieselberg. Then it goes, mainly on the Baden-Württemberg border path, on the ridge between Kaltbrunn / Wittichen and Bad Ripoldsau-Schappbach to the Teisenkopf viewpoint. From here we had initially considered going to Schiltach, but since we wanted to Alpirsbach it would have been too long. From Teisenkopf we descended over the night hole and the Eselbach to Schenkenzell and then walked over the raftsman path to Alpirsbach.
I can really recommend this hiking route!

It started at 6:30 a.m., it was still pretty dark in the forest, so I made a few extra meters at the second junction.
On beautiful paths it went through the black forest, shortly before km 5.0 there is a curve on a beaten path, I hardly found this junction. Shortly afterwards Ellbachhütte with party lighting, lots of empties, parked cars, a noisy emergency power generator and a single person. I don't know if it was the night watch from the party, or if he used a pump to fill canisters with water.
Then it goes up to the junction "Adventure Path". A really great section of the route, well maintained and cleared, but demanding. Past the Ellbachsee over great mountain paths to the Ellbachseeblick and past the mountain village Kniebis down again.
The whole path is in great condition, but the Kniebisers really go out of their way with figures and flooring, great! Over wide forest paths it goes to the upper end of the Sankenbach waterfall, down this on a path and then again broadly along the lake. Attention: At the lower end do not turn where I am to the right, but only to the right at the wide "Heinzelbergstrasse"!
Then it's actually back to the parking lot. Be careful at the Höferköpflehütte, here you continue on the grass-covered path behind the hut.

Start below Wittichen Monastery with ascent to the Bocksecke, easy to walk through the wide paths. Typically northern Black Forest, a lot of forest, little view, but beautiful. Via Schmidsberger Platz and the Elme, it goes into the neighboring valley to Kaltbrunn and from, past the Burgfelsenkapelle, to the starting point. Part of the route leads over the Mittelweg, Hans-Jakob-Weg and Querweg Gengenbach - Alpirsbach. I liked it!I also uploaded the pictures of two dead moles, six weeks ago I had three of them, they are just on the way and are dead. No external injuries, have you had that too?

So, at 6:45 am we started, the weather was actually quite passable ... for autumn. :-)
We went to the GPS data of the Ortenau tourist office, which I had from another website, we walked clockwise, in the text description the route was counterclockwise.
But I like such elevation profiles when it goes up the same length at the beginning, for me it is very good to get warm. It's a beautiful route and there are also many viewpoints for the Black Forest. To be on the safe side, we are still on the Gütschkopf from the actual Sageweg, which I would definitely recommend.
Although it was the official GPS data, I am not entirely sure whether we were on the right track. On the one hand, the analogue signs were sparse or even non-existent, on the other hand, we only found 3 "ghost" signs, which seems a little little to me. But the mistake could also have been ours!
I don't care either, the main thing is to go hiking, to see something from time to time, maybe see a few animals and be good.
