The Black Forest is a large, mountainous forest area in Baden-Württemberg. The region is known for its many hiking and mountain biking trails. The region is also home to beautiful lakes - such as the Titisee and the Schluchsee. There are many long distance hiking trails that cross through the forest, such as the Westweg and Mittelweg. In the northern part of the forest lies the Black Forest National Park, which was introduced in 2014.

My girlfriend and I will be in the Black Forest at the end of September. We are experienced hikers and are looking for the best day hikes. Does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks!

We did the entire loop, but it seem ever few people do this. Most hike to the end of the small feeder steam and turn back.

I drove the way without a map and without a plan. There are many steep sections where you have to push (me at least) and my route was sometimes very remote. But I enjoyed it immensely and gladly again

A nice variation of different scenes. Would give it a 3.5 star.

The circular route is well signposted and easy to follow. The beginning or the end (depending on how you walk around) is very steep and for a short time very exhausting. The valley is impressive, everything is what your heart desires, brook, forest but also sunny sections. For dogs the way is absolutely suitable, with smaller children I would advise against it however, since many places are very slippery and it can be dangerous also because of the countless stones. All in all highly recommended!

This trail is now an out and back 2.5 mile round trip. It looks like the loop portion is currently closed. This is still a nice little hike, mostly shaded and well maintained.

Really beautiful hike. Would recommend eating at Lendi In the city center once you’re done.

this was a great first trail for my wife and I. Beautiful

Really good trail, very long but beautiful

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.

This was a great, scenic hike that I found relatively easy but was difficult yet completable for my wife who tagged along (she does not hike much). Thus, this trail is doable for beginners and families with walking children but it will be challenging and the kiddos will be completely beat by the end. The part I found most difficult was the very first ascent from the cable car station up to the stone monument, it is decently steep. This can be skipped by taking the cable car if you want for 10ish Euros. From the stone monument the Feldberg Tower is a short walk on paved walkways; it has great views with art exhibits and a museum all for a few Euros. The peak is a slightly longer walk from the tower on paved/gravel trails with gentle inclines/declines that passed by some grazing cows when we did this trail in August. The peak has great views but not much else. After this point the trail becomes unfriendly to tourists; sturdy closed toed shoes are a must and families with push strollers or the elderly/less physically capable should call it a day. The trail descends the other side of the Feldberg into the next valley to a wonderful mountain hut with food and beer which marks the halfway point of the trail. From here it continues to wind around the mountain ascending/descending multiple times while passing by a picturesque creek and a few other mountain huts before you reach the beautiful Feldsee. Be forewarned, it is illegal to swim or even dip your feet here; there is an endangered species of plant in the lake hailing from the Ice Age. From the Feldsee it is a steep but short 1km hike back to the cable car station. Wonderful views, ease of access for the elderly/less physically capable up to the peak, family friendly whether you turn around at the peak or continue on for more of a challenge, and lots of refreshment along the more difficult second half. Great hike for everyone!

- The trail was suitable for running in most places. - Downloaded map was very important. I had no/poor cell service for the majority of the first 6-7 miles. And more than a few time I had to reference the map to avoid a turn down the wrong trail. - The last few miles of this trail run were definitely more running than trail... scenic landscapes, but not forrest... meadows and fields. The last mile or so was actually on a paved road. However, there are plenty of possible variations that would avoid roads altogether. I followed the highlighted trace on the AllTrails map, but the area is criss-crossed with other, very well maintained trails which show up on the AllTrails map. - Also, the 9.5 mile loop could easily be shorted to 5-6 miles, or less, by using the aforementioned alternate trails shown on the AllTrails map... or extended, though 9 1/2 miles wore me out pretty well. - 4 stars only because of the last stretch on the highway. There are certainly 5 star variations of this trail I just haven't tried yet.

The first 2/3 of the trail was very scenic and full of trees with fantastic trails cut into the side of the hills. It would have been five stars but the last 1/3 of the trail wasn’t quite as scenic and you end up walking along a road and through the town.
