Only hiked to campground near Lenzkirch. No cliff walls like stage 2 (which was spectacular) but still beautiful. This part of hike is more through forest area near river but not much is next to the river.

Beautiful trail along the wutach river through the gorge featuring high cliff walls. Some we sections are slippery so wear good shoes.

Awesome trail!

dreamy walk - georges scenery!
