We started the tour at Hofgut Ramstein. There is the possibility to park on the edge of the street. You have to open a gate past the estate. You then continue down a meadow path to descend into the gorge.
First we are upstream to the Ramsteiner Mühle. The mill is in a very idyllic location. There are geese, chickens and horses in the pasture. As far as I know, the mill has been privately owned for a long time. However, another path to the northeast leads past the mill itself, but we did not take it.
From the mill we then walk the same way back down the river. This is our first time in the gorge and we want to take a look around. The gorge is very picturesque and impressive, although the Schlicher has little water. Everywhere there are rock steps in the stream bed, over which the water splashes down. At a small barrage we find the diversion from the small mill canal to the mill at Butschbacher Hof. This small mill canal leads above the Schischem to the mill further downstream. There are other buildings near the small mill that are probably privately owned. The Irslingen ruins are also located at the Butschbacher Hof. A narrow path leads to the ruins, which is difficult to walk in two places in wet weather. At the ruin we first turn around and go back to the start.
We liked the Schischemklamm very much and we will come back when the opportunity arises and enlarge the route.

We started in Margrethausen at the monastery / cemetery and did the first part of the ascent to Heersberg. Instead of the zigzag path that leads to the Heersberg, we hiked the gravel path towards Lautlingen / Laufen. This is where the so-called "Muliweg" starts, which was laid out in 1941/1942 by German mountain troops. We climbed the Heersberg over the Muliweg. After a dangling over the plateau, we descended over the sea of rocks. However, this descent was very muddy and difficult to walk due to the wet weather.

The Zellerhorn with its mega view of the Zoller was well attended in this wonderful weather, as you can see in the picture from below 😬 ... we were able to enjoy the ascent over the zigzag path from Mariazell to the eaves in peace 😊
Again a great tour according to the motto: Dahoim isch oifach schee 🥰

On Sunday we were invited to a guided tour of the Wollmatinger Ried with the NABU Group Albstadt. Please note that the reed is not fully accessible. However, it is possible to book reed tours through the NABU-Bodenseezentrum. Some of the pictures were taken from an observation platform.

We left Truchtelfingen on Friday afternoon. The first goal was the circular hiking trail on the Ochsenberg. We mastered the height with the ascent over the "nameless rock". Then followed the lookout points Martinsfels, Klarafels and Schnecklesfels. We made a short detour to the "Alpenblick". There was a satisfactory distance view. At least we were able to capture the Alps in the photo. We continued over the eaves "Ochsenberg Tour" and the Ochsenhaus inn on the Wachtfels. The time had already progressed a bit and gave us an interesting view towards Plettenberg and the cut into the Balingen plain. Between the Wachtfels and the ruins of Wildentierberg (on the Kugelbergle), the descent into the Eyachtal near Margrethausen followed. Later on, the descent here is unfortunately a bit slippery and impassable, as the last descent to Margrethausen is probably not very well done. Past the monastery, cemetery and swallow tower followed the ascent to the Heersberg. This climb is part of the "Felsenmeersteig" eaves corridor. We found a suitable night camp on the Heersberg and could admire the beautiful sunrise the next morning. We have chosen the Muliweg for the descent. This was created in 1940/41 by mountain troops from the Enziandivision, who trained here before they were then sent to work in the Caucasus, among other places. Unfortunately, many of the comrades did not return to their families and were used as fuel in this nonsensical war. Back in Margrethausen, we refreshed our tired feet in the Kneipp pool. After we had replenished our water supplies in the local shop, we went back up the hill to the Lerchenfeld and back home via the Rossental. This last ascent is part of the mountain bike route of the "Gonso Trail".

A nice, cozy round despite the drizzle 😊☔️
We even discovered a shortcut to the Teufelstor, a wooden bridge over the Lauchert with a great paved path above the railroad tracks, neither of which is yet on the Komoot map.
And the dog lady absolutely wanted to be the first to climb the Devil's Gate and then guard it ... 😉
