Route completed on13 September 2020

Start : Schiltach, several free car parks including one along the Kinzig at the junction of Haupstrasse and Auestrasse. Alt : 330 m

For accommodation, I recommend the Gasthof zum Weysen Rossle. Rose-Marie Wolber is very friendly and speaks French. The food is very good.

Technical description

This route presents no difficulties and was covered with a mountain bike fitted with 40 Gravel tyres, without any problems. Approximately 50% of the route is on nice rolling paths and the rest on tarmac roads.

The access to the DE-BW-0689c pass is very steep for 1.8 km, sometimes approaching 20%.

Access to the final pass DE-BW-0590a is an easy push of around 300m. Unlike the trail, you climb up and down on the same descent path.
