The new Westweg section between Hinterzarten and Feldberg-Grüble initially runs along the Emil-Thoma-Weg above the Zartenbach valley. Signposts show a short detour to the pretty Mathislesweiher, a former rafting pond. Slowly ascending the silent clearing "Am Feldberg" is reached, where stand individual forest farms. Here the running direction changes. The path branches off to the south, passes on the Rufensteg the Sagenbach and comes to Rufenholzplatz. Now the way begins to rise more clearly. The forest path gradually becomes a beautiful trail through primeval spruce forest. The Emil-Thoma-Weg crosses the newly created Premiumweg "Feldbergsteig" and touches a short time later the monstrous Karwände the field lake. Breathtaking deep views of the lake and a touch of alpine feeling offers a small detour via the Felsensteig to the Seebuck (1,448 m), which branches off on the way from the Westweg. Nice is also the following ascent through the Grüble in the wide saddle between Seebuck to the left and Feldberg summit to the right. Twenty minutes later, "the highest" is reached in the Black Forest. At the observation deck at the 1,495 meter high Feldberg, vis-a-vis the weather forecast Feldberg of the German Weather Service, one stands at the highest point in Germany outside the Alps and accordingly fulminant is the 360 ​​degree panoramic view in good weather. In the north and east the Black Forest heights lose themselves on the horizon and in the west the Vosges seem to hover over the Rhine plain. However, the showpiece is the broad Alpine panorama in the south, which also accompanies the hiker on the way across the St. Wilhelmer Hut to the Stübenwasen (1,386 m). If the stage is too long for you, you can get off at Berghaus Stübenwasen or Hotel Notschrei if you carry your luggage yourself. Both are on the way to Wiedener Eck. Without much difference in altitude, the Trubelsmattkopf is circled, before some last kilometers lead over free meadow slopes to the Wiedener Eck.
