The trails starts at the impressive ruin Hiltenburg which was once in the ownership of the Helfensteiner noble families. From here the trail goes downwards along the Hiltental further on to the small village Gosbach. Following the steap path up to the Leimberg, you will be rewarded with a breath-taking panorama view of the romantic Kreuzkapelle across the upper Filstal.
Through idyllic wooden valleys the trail leads you to the village Mühlhausen im Täle, located in the centre of the beautiful Goißatäle (lit. “goats valley”). The valley´s name goes back to a time when lots of families kept goats for milk, cheese and goatskin rugs. Letting Hotel Höhenblick behind, the Albtraufgänger proceeds in small turns through the forest, crossing the Buchsteige with fascinating juniper heathlands and amazing views towards the emerging Filstalbridge, until it leads you back to Wiesensteig.
The last part of the trail passes Wiesensteig castle and continues along the Schlagfels and the Sommerberg and subsequently further down the Wiesensteiger way of the cross.
