Water, Woods and Meadow Trail (Premium Trail)

Black Forest Pleasure Trail and Premium Trail

Calw – Bad Teinach-Zavelstein
The Water, Woods and Meadow Trail, which is the first trail to be rated a Black Forest Pleasure Trail and Premium Trail in the rural district of Calw, takes you through enchanting woods with narrow, natural woodland trails, romantic brook valleys and picturesque orchard meadows. On the approx. 14-km trail enjoy the rich variety of nature and fascinating culture of the Central/North Black Forest Nature Park.
 
Very close to the Hermann-Hesse town of Calw yet in the midst of intact nature. Our breath-taking, varied pleasure trail begins directly behind the municipal park just a few meters away from the market place that is lined with half-timbered houses. You can of course also start at the hikers’ hostel “Wanderheim” in Zavelstein. In the initial ascent we are accompanied by ancient oak and beech trees, then suddenly we are confronted by the first massive red sandstone rock, the “Gimpelstein”, with a great view of the pulsating life below. A moment later, an alpine path leads us to the most gruesome spot in the Calw Forest, the scaffold, where executions used to be held. The highlight of the trail is undoubtedly the path through the Rötelbachtal valley. Hikers can refresh themselves in the natural water-treading basins. But take care, for the path can always be slippery.
