At 2.8 km 410 meters in altitude at the beginning of the tour was really hard, but the path offers so much to see and marvel that you only realize how strenuous it is towards the end of the climb.
The hike begins at a hiking parking lot on a wide path to the first barbecue area, then it becomes narrow, rooted, rocky to the waterfall.You could stand there forever and watch the water tumble over the rocks.
In the beautiful spell forest, the beautiful path goes higher and higher, once you are at the top, you are happy about a wide, beautiful forest path on which you can regenerate and relax for the next three kilometers.
Then there is a not so often walked path, which is easy to recognize and walk, past a small pond. The rest of the way back on a wide path gives a few nice views of the valley.

It was clear that I would walk the path to the Schloßberg again sometime - my favorite in the Münstertal.
The beautiful, narrow path begins immediately after 100 m. Alternating on green grass, soft moss, pine needles but also stones, the path winds the first 2 km higher and higher to a viewpoint with a slowly increasing view of Münsterhalden because of the deciduous trees. There is a great view of the Belchen and Hohe Kelch.
Shortly afterwards the path ends in a beautiful forest path and after another 2km you continue on a similarly beautiful path. Again and again you have a beautiful view towards Belchen and Hohe Kelch.
The descent down towards Münsterhalden is sometimes quite steep, but no problem with a bit of sure-footedness.
A short distance on asphalt and road - then, if you don't mix up the junction at km 10 as we did 😉, go back parallel to the main road on a green path.

Quickly put together a small round this morning, which turned out to be quite nice and cozy.
From the hiking parking lot along the Buselbach, accompanied by its beautiful babble, first go up the crisp Sepentine to the Behaghelhütte - there is a great view of the Oberriedertal and Kirchzarten, then you can relax and unwind, without highlights, but a wide, beautiful forest path to the Katzensteig. The junction there leads to a forest path that is not often frequented, which later becomes increasingly narrow as a path until it can no longer be recognized.
Recalling the remarks of a tour by Markus, I looked and saw on his tour that he went the same way in the other direction and also had his problems with it. 🙋♀️ Markus, at the moment these paths seem to somehow attract us 😀.
Back on the right path we went down to the Wilhelmertal and the wonderful Wilhelmitenpfad.

First of all, a big thank you to Markus, who inspired me on this extraordinary tour.
At the end of the Zastlertal on a hiking car park, after a short stretch of road a wonderful path went up along the Zastlerbach, the altitude difference is hardly noticeable, since almost like a staircase. At the Klusehütte again a small piece of asphalt, then the branch comes to part of this tour, the it has it all right.
Just one more path, the path is recognizable from the next junction, but you have to keep your eyes open. From km 2.5 it will be violent. If I hadn't known that Markus ran there yesterday, I would have been the other way round 🤪.Climbing over dead wood, looking for a stop on boulders, looking for a path, climbing over thick trees, running for GPS and finding the path - in alternating order 😀 - a good kilometer long, you don't think how long a kilometer can be ( approx. 40 min.) Sometimes I literally walked in Markus' footsteps, was always a sign that I am right.🙂
So you are relieved when you can continue walking on a soft moss path.
Then it was not far to go, then we went on a nice narrow path to the Zastlerhütte and further towards Tote Mann. On this way I met Petra, one of my followers who was also on a tour, I was very happy.
The way back was obviously a barely walked path, but it went well with this tour and was also easy to walk and offered a great view of the Zastlertal towards the end.
The last piece along the well-known path along the Zastlerbach - beautiful(I think I'll take Markus with me next time)

From the valley station of the Schauinsland cable car, a beautiful zigzag path leads again and again under the gondolas of the cable car up to the middle station (no exit / boarding possible).
The way back takes you back to the valley station on well-known paths on the Blue Diamond and the Kybfelsensteig.
The paths all run great, mostly narrow single paths - just the way you want it 🙂

Started at the outskirts of Oberried, there is good parking. The first two kilometers were constant but quite steep on a wide forest path to the start of the rock path. On a super path, the rock path winds through the forest, beautiful to walk, not particularly steep anymore and with great rock formations.
The wide forest / forest path from the Gfälmatte to the Erlenbacherhütte was good and brisk to walk, but over time it was a bit boring - no change, no view, twice closed due to forest work - I was through anyway, was not a problem 😉
From the Erlenbacherhütte it was a bit more varied, the view was rather bad, but foggy trees and forests - great atmosphere.
Then we alternated on a broad forest path and piecewise narrow paths down and back towards Oberried.
The last four kilometers offer the hoped-for view towards Oberried / Kirchzarten and the ridges of the Rosskopf and Hörnleberg.
If you had run the tour directly after km 10 from the Gfälmatte, you would not have missed much, but the rock path is the absolute highlight of this tour and really highly recommended.

There is nothing better than filling out two hours of waiting in the Black Forest 😉
On the well-known and wonderful single path to the Piketfelsen with its
Great view of the Hinterwaldkopf / Alpersbach and Feldberg, then after about 3.5 km down the junction into the valley, which I didn't know yet. Begins with a rather steep single path, then a wide and steeply sloping forest path, partly rocky, later good again Nice to walk to the Höllentalbahn and the Ravennaviadukt. From there well-known paths through the always great Ravennaschlucht to half the height and the way back to the starting point.
What interested me most about the tour was the descent into the valley, you can walk, but you don't have to 😉

On a beautiful narrow knight's path, partly rocky, partly wonderfully soft, you go to the castle ruin Scharfenstein, of which there is unfortunately hardly anything left, but it is still worth a visit there, because the view of the valley and the Belchen is very beautiful meanders without great vertical meters up to a wide, beautiful, somewhat steeper forest path, from where the babbling of a brook accompanies you until you continue on a narrow path further up. At km 4.2 there is again a great view of the Belchen. If you do not plan a longer tour, the bench there is a turning point. Our attempt to continue a bit failed because the wrong path ended after 700 m
great way-great view-great trip :-)

A short crisp ascent on a wide forest path - then the usual single paths towards Kybfelsen, wonderful to walk on soft coniferous ground. Today the Kybfelsen left out, on the Kybfelsensteig over the view "Zwei Birken" comfortably slowly downhill again. Further down then on the Sägemännlepfad direction St. Barbara back (unfortunately no sawmen there).

The first two kilometers started again on less frequented paths, but therefore not less beautiful 🙂, then a small piece of side street and from km three then the steep climb to the pilgrimage church on the Hörnleberg, which is rewarded by a fabulous view towards Oberwinden , Elzach and in the Rhine valley. With an open-air altar in front of the pilgrimage church with many benches you can take a nice break with a great view.
Then a nice narrow path towards Tafelbühl, is always great to walk.
The descent into the valley runs along mostly wide forest paths, sometimes not often, but very nice to walk and always nice views towards Hörnleberg with the highly visible chapel.
