Through the Rabenschlucht and the forests of the Kirchberg the Lebküchlerweg leads us past viewpoints above the Black Rock and the Rudolf-Jordan-Hütte. Soon the forest clears and we hike across meadow paths to the district of Lehen - with wonderful views of the Todtmooser valley and the Hotzenwald.
The Hochkopfhaus invites us to a cozy stop before we hike on the panoramic trail to the cozy sky chairs under the Weidbuche.
On the rustic forest path we walk past the Liebfrauenbrunnen and enjoy the view at the Rüttepavillon. From there, the path leads us over paths and bridges through the small gorge down into the idyllic district Rütte and on to Todtmooser waterfall. Past the Stricker Chapel, we can stop in the Hotel-Restaurant Rößle shortly before the end of the hike.
"Open your eyes" on the high black forest premium hiking trails. Because on every way there is a stamp point in the form of a cuckoo clock. These offer the opportunity to document the hikes by stamp in the Hochschwarzwälder Wanderpass. Further information can be found at www.hochschwarzwald.de
