About Marcus

In der Region Nordbaden bin ich besonders gerne zum Wanden aber auch auf dem Rennrad unterwegs.
Früher meist nur zur Orientierung in Komoot geplant, nun hat mich aber das taggen ein wenig angemacht.
So kann ich meinen Erlebnissen in der Natur noch besser nachspüren als bisher in meinem Fotoalbum.
Besonders hier in der Natur des Nordschwarzwaldes aber auch in den Vogesen und hoffentlich bald mal wieder in den Alpen finde ich Entspannung, Abstand vom Alltag aber auch sportlichen Antrieb und immer wieder sehr lohnende Erlebnisse.
Darum gibts nun neue Touren von hier und auch mal von ganz woanders aber auch ein paar alte geplante die mir am Herzen liegen. ;-)
Vielleicht findet sich hier auch etwas was den ein oder anderen inspiriert und zu eigenen Touren anregt. Viel Spass dabei.

      I liked the little walk today
      We liked it so much that it went out again for a nice round around the Oos. Pure enjoyment while cycling over the viewing path and through the orchards to the Rhine plain. A little coffee with it, what more could you want.

      After some uncertainty about the weather conditions, Matthias and I were actually able to start the tour around the Grobbach without the announced rain and only with the storm subsiding. Here is a link to his recording with further pictures
      The starting point is the forest car park on the B500 at the level of Malschbach, which can be found immediately after the first bend at the exit of Geroldsau.
      Barely 300 m from the parking lot we are already on the path on the Grobbach, which this morning is almost deserted. At a later hour, visitors often line up here like a string of pearls. While having great conversations, we enjoy the path with its stones and roots, always with the sound of the brook in the background. After approx. 1.5 km we reach the waterfall hut with a view of the 6m high main waterfall. Of course, we won't miss a detour closer. However, despite the recent rainfall, the water level is still poor. A few meters further we pass the Bütthof, where you can eat very tasty in a rustic atmosphere. From here it is a quick 1.5 km up to the Kreuzfelsen and the Bernickelfelsen hut, 300 m above sea level. The narrow path, which begins just above the Bütthof at another forest car park, winds its way up the mountain in many serpentines, on which a wonderful view of Baden-Baden and the Rhine plain awaits. Also highly recommended for sunrises and sunsets. The blue in the sky shows us that the weather will probably stay good on the tour. The Bernickelfelsen Hut is ideal for our first rest and protects us from the slowly decreasing wind. From here it goes in wide serpentines and a gentle slope up the valley back down to the Grobbach. The upper part is also pleasing. In addition to pastures with highland cattle, we follow a small path in the immediate vicinity of the stream, washed-out rocks alternate with small pools that are ideal for swimming. So it goes down until we reach the Bütthof again and now follow the steep rocky path opposite the ascent side. This is referred to as dangerous but does not refer to the width of the path as more to the possible danger of falling if you go too close to the edge. Here it goes a few meters down into the Grobbach. The path now meanders above the stream down to the parking lot. Here it goes over the B500 through the small suburb of Malschbach. To the Jahnhütte, our next destination, now goes 3km up again. Mostly on wide forest paths but also paths are included. You cannot sit in the hut, which is located at a larger fork in the road, but two beautiful wooden benches on the side invite you to take a rest. Here we sit in the sun for a long time and enjoy the great atmosphere. A wonderful place even if the view of the Black Forest continues to grow. It is difficult for me to leave this place, but it goes directly down the Ibach valley to the Marienhof school camp, which the locals affectionately call "Klösterle".
      Here we cross Geroldsauerstrasse and climb up the serpentines with the St Mary's Chapel at the level of the St. Mary's Chapel to get to the Schatzbühl footpath at the top. This path at half height above the village offers many wonderful views back to the orchards, the Klösterle or the Iberst over which we climbed. We slowly approach the Geroldsauer waterfall again and cross the Grobbach one last time and reach our destination at the parking lot via the Wannacker. In many ways it is a special pleasure that this tour came about today. Through the hills on both sides of the valley, it offers beautiful views around the Grobachtal down to the Rhine valley and towards Hohenlohe. Thanks also to Matthias, it was great fun.

      Play of colors on the key rock
      At sunrise, at the beginning of my second hike, I wanted to go to the Schlüsselfelsen, which is only a few km from the Drachenburg on the Heidenberg. At 11 p.m. I came from the Teufelstisch at the forest parking lot, I lay down comfortably in my car, but it should start at 5.30 a.m. However, my sleep was suddenly ended by a Bundeswehr unit that ended its night march at 1.30 a.m. right next to my car. If I had known what hustle and bustle awaited me this night, I would have looked for a new place. So I was woken up again and again when cars came and went or there was a change of shift, because the boys and girls had all fought in the forest to spend the night. So I was happy to finally get up at 5 a.m. So it went with a headlamp through forest and field and especially then steeply up the rocks to collect beautiful impressions.
      The morning light absolutely enchanted me. Likewise, the view from the book chamber rock and the climbing on the Drachenburg. After a small breakfast, another 10km through the wonderful rocky landscape was planned. Because of my short night and the upcoming return trip, I postponed this to a next visit.

      Finally I made it too.
      The imposing rock formations on the Hauensteiner Schusterpfad are certainly well known and have been visited and hiked by many. What particularly struck me at the beginning of the path to the Felsentor are the many wonderful underground paths that can be found here. Soils covered with soft ground sandstone and pine needles alternate with wonderful rock surfaces. These alone would be enough reasons for a visit. Of course, the first thing I noticed was the extraordinary rock formations when I saved Matthias and Annett's tour last year.
      (... yes, sometimes it takes a little longer before the tours are realized.)
      It should finally be two days in the beautiful Dahner Felsenland with overnight stays in the car, sunsets and sunrises and the devil's table at night.
      The tour starts at the rock gate above Hauenstein at the Nettomarkt. It hardly takes 200m and you are away from the hustle and bustle of the street, simply immerse yourself in this breathtaking landscape. One step through the same gate and you're right in the middle of it. Just one look at the shoe with a yellow background, which serves as a path marker, and you cannot stray from the path.
      Sandstone powdered soils, rock formations and pine forest now alternate and it goes up to the Nedingfelsen with an impressive view of the whole area. At every corner there is something to be found here, sometimes a beautiful view of the town of Hauenstein, cairns along the way or just these special rocks.
      After about 4km you come out of the forest and follow wonderful orchards for a while and here too you can always discover beautiful rocks, even if only from a distance. A short distance through a very beautiful settlement barely a few 100m then you are already on the through road from Hauenstein from where it goes through a wonderful forest up to the Kreuzelfelsen with a direct view down to Hauenstein. Here I am further below the rocks and was able to take a nice break under a ledge at what seems to me to be a hidden resting place.
      A very special place. Today I was almost alone on the way, so the enjoyment was even greater.
      Strengthened, it then went from here past the Bare Rock and on to the Dörreinfelsen and the Backelstein castle ruins. It is hard to find new superlatives - each place is simply impressive in itself. From here it was a little quieter with the big rocks, but the path remained interesting until you suddenly stand in front of the chicken rock. You can only get to the top via a ladder and enjoy the great view. A tour couldn't be more diverse. From there it goes down to the hiking home "Dicke Eiche". Unfortunately, this was closed during the week because a cool drink would have been just right on this hot day.
      After Matthias and Kauai had written that from here the further course of the shoemaker's path would be rather boring, I planned Kauai's suggestion with the Lanzenfahrter rock and added the very imposing Wolf Rock to my route.
      It is really highly recommended that there are also different options for hiking from here. Once directly under the bonsai table rock, which makes a very special figure when the sun sets, down into the Queichtal or after the Lanzenfahrt rock straight on to the rock formation Hauensteiner Doll.
      I took the path down to Hauenstein and unfortunately also left the planned paddle pond on the left because I wanted to go to the Slevogtfels at sunset. From there you have a great view of the three hilltops of Münz, Anebos and Trifels with its castle.
      Conclusion great tour
      Thank you for the great tips. I was able to enjoy the tour to the full.

      Nice round with great views. Shortly after the last pictures, at the highest point of the tour in Ebersteinburg, a massive cloudburst went down, so that I did not cycle further into the Murgtal but directly under the warm shower.

      It took over 2 months until I finally had all the spare parts for the drive of my Lapierre. Original spare parts were no longer available, so exact hole spacings etc. were required to find something suitable. Of course, you shouldn't put any emphasis on color accuracy. ;-) But it seems to work even if a few settings are waiting for me.

      Seems like you didn't catch a lot of shadows today either. The ice cream is more than deserved.
