HikingGreat!

The initial 1/4 part was nice for the views but was not interesting for hiking. The last 3/4 of the route made up for the hiking part. All in all we had a great time on this route.

Nature tripsGreat!Rocky

this was one of the most beautifull hikes we had for now. the first climb is the hardest, you walk up the feldberg mountain to its highest point. you need to be in good condition for tis walk because it's a steep climb. you have the option to use a cable car to the top. once you've reached the top you can enjoy the amazing view. from there we continue the hike. the first part is a bit boring, but you come across a little tavern where you can drink and eat something if you want. the hike gets really interesting once you enter the forrest. it's an amazing scene, you come across some little creeks and waterfalls. when you're near the end of the hike you come across the feldsee. this is a little peaceful lake. for us this really was the best and most beautifull part of the hike. important note! you can't swim or even dip your toe in the lake! it has something to do with an endangered plant species that grows in the water. when you leave the feldsee and continue the hike it's a last really exhausting and rocky climb you need to complete before you reach the end. fun fact: during the hike you'll see some numbered stones. i think someone started a long time ago with laying some little rocks on them. many people started doing the same thing (us included) and this led to some nice little rock formations on the numbered stones. the hike is exhausting but really beautifull. but on the firts part we found it really to crowded.

After waiting aprox 15 minutes in the long row in front of the gondola lift we decided that it made more sense to just start our walk at the(normal) beginning near the entrance and walk our way up. this hike was good doable and it provides both a steeper way and a more easy way up. note: this is not the way behind the gondola lift. taking the original way makes it more comfy because you don't have to constantly wait for the other people to pass. and can create some space in between you and other group of hikers simply by waiting or letting them pass. in the beginning there were allot of tourist it was on a Wednesday but summer hollidays have started. it was already very busy so I would not recommend to come during the weekend. the beginning we found not so interesting hikings wise but it provides some ok/good views especially nice for people who have not been on such a high spot before. we took the red path down where we could this was seemingly the more difficult path but for us that made more fun. I would recommend to have at least some decent hiking shoes in this case. we noticed that the further we went the less tourists there were. there are multiple mountain restaurants but they have resting days which are announced on the boards along the pathway but also on the webpage. I recommend to check their openings days beforehand online when planning to eat in the restaurant. we stopped at the second restaurant this was an ok restaurant but old fashioned and nothing really special the prices were good. the restaurants that were closed had a serve yourself bar where you could get drinks and had to deposit some money. the first half we found a little boring but later it got more interesting when we finally entered the woods good mixtures between climbs and ascends somewhere in the wood part there you find a water source where you can refill your bottles with some refreshing mountain water. the lake was nice it is not allowed to swim there but anyway nice to take a break at. the last part after the lake was most exhausting because of an unexpected climb again the terrain is rocky but still nice. we took it somewhat easy and with all breaks together we took 6 hours to complete it with a walking time of 4 hours. all together it was a nice trail not that much to see when you are used to higher views and besides the view there is not much else then a nice forest to see.

Completed the trail in around 4 hours. As people have mentioned, start counterclockwise: I wish I had! By going clockwise you start with the highest point and a great view of the area, then a varied descent in wooded areas (it’s kind of like having dessert first, followed by dinner). Pros: - Areas with diverse nature - Nice views Cons: - Lots of people - Often walking on a road (paved or gravelled) It’s an okay hike, but there are better ones in the nearby region.

This was a beautiful trail!! So many scenic views. I went it backwards which was nice because you won’t get stuck behind any groups (but you will have to go around them) going the trail backwards I found to be much more difficult. It is easy to stray from the trail so I would recommend purchasing pro on the app so you can have the map downloaded. There are many places to stop and eat or just catch a break. I finished the route in 3 hours but I never stopped. Highly recommend!

Mitte Mai gut zu gehen, wir (Anfang 30) und wenig erfahren/trainiert konnten den Steig ohne Probleme bewandern. Mit Pausen und Hüttenbesuch waren wir in ca 4 Stunden durch. Auf dem Gipfel ist man recht zügig, der Großteil der Strecke folgt danach, lohnt sich aber allemal!

It could be diffucult for the ones who do not regulary attend to hiking activities. At the beginning there is a smooth way which you need to climb but it worths as you see a wonderful panaromic view from top. There are few go down and go up sections before you arrive to lake, it needs good condition but you are just in the middle of nature. Feldsee is amazing you can just take a breath there because after that it seems that it is almost end of the loop but you must hike in a path almost 1.5 more kilometers. If you would like to see mountain, river, lake and all the nature at the same time here is the perfect choice.

Fun trail, the initial and final climbs are the longest. The Forest is extremely beautiful. The views from atop the mountain are pretty incredible too. Parking is easy it’s a large garage by the roundabout.

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!

First to Review

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!
