DE-BW The Black Forest Schiltach long – Gravel 68 Km, D+1672m, 18 cols

Author description

Author: Jean-Luc Ceccato

Route completed on 14 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.

General description

As you pass through the villages, you’ll see the carefully decorated houses that are so typical of this mid-mountain region. There are numerous viewpoints along the way

Technical description

This route presents no difficulties, and was completed with a mountain bike fitted with 40 Gravel tyres, with no problems whatsoever. The route is about 50% on nice rolling tracks and the rest on tarmac roads.

To get to the DE-BW-0476 pass, I’d advise you to go up and down the side of the loop that I went down, about 300 m, because the part I went up required me to cross an electrified fence and drive inside the field.

At km 17.7 of the route, cross the river directly and avoid the loop that I did unnecessarily, to get back on the route at km 19.9.

Once you have reached the DE-BW-0505a pass, an easy 200 m push takes you back to a track.

As with most routes in the Black Forest, there are often some fairly steep slopes to contend with.
