Your hike begins at Steinknickleturm, a 30-meter-high wooden lookout tower. The key to get you on bail in Naturefriends house. From there you can get a nice overview of the surrounding area and the surrounding area. Then you follow the path "3 - Unterheimbach sports field". This leads you to a shelter with a fireplace on the outskirts of Neuhütten over to Schindersbrunnen. With this you can refresh yourself. But beware: It is not known if it is drinking water. The route continues on winding forest roads towards Unterheimbach on which robber gangs were already on the way in the Middle Ages. Even before the place it goes on Bernbach and numerous fish ponds along. In Unterheimbach you walk through vineyards and orchards to the castle ruin Heimberg. Now you walk through Herrenhölzle to the nearby barbecue area. Here is also a large sports field. If you would like to use the area, please register via the municipality of Bretzfeld. Continue for some 100 meters unpaved along the edge of the forest before you come to the marked path with a blue plus. Follow this until the crossroads where the path marked with a blue minus crosses. Switched to the blue minus, the trail now becomes a narrow path. About stone and stone go to the Bernbach, which you may cross in 2 places without a bridge. The path winds uphill until it joins the Binsenweg. After a final climb, you will return to Steinknickle. By the way, there is the youth trail "From the green giants to the stone fortress" in the immediate vicinity.Show more

The trail starts in Wüstenrot in the Franconian Swabian nature park. Wüstenrot can be reached by bus from Bretzfeld and Schwäbisch Hall every 2 hours on weekends. At the beginning you get information about the Bauspar museum in Wüstenrot via the audio guide. Shortly thereafter, we reach the bird of prey plantation on Spatzenwald ( and a high ropes course. Via the marking blue dot of the Swabian Albverein we reach the former silver gallery. Here we learn again about the audio guide details about this natural monument. On the connecting path from the silver tunnel to the Wellingtonia, the "ladder of heaven" has to be conquered, a Douglas fir tree trunk from which 66 steps were worked out. On our further hiking trail, the tree giants welcome us at Wellingtonienplatz ( These are 100-year-old sequoias that were imported and planted in 1865 by King William of America. A barbecue and football pitch with several seats and huts invite you to rest. In 200m distance is a spring, which also feeds the Wassertretbecken. A relaxing walk through the water, refreshes our feet. Afterwards we take a leisurely downhill walk, pass the serpentine-like route to the outskirts of Spangenbach, cross the road and walk uphill to the Greuthof. A steep, natural path brings us again to a country road. Now we have to gain altitude again in the area of the Löwensteiner Mountains in order to reach the Löwenstein Clinic via forest and forest roads. Left at the clinic, it goes down towards Löwenburg. Just before the finish we can enjoy a wonderful view and eat our provisions at the rest area above the castle. We visit the castle ( and then walk into the place Löwenstein to the bus stop.Show more
