Gäu trailGaeu_trail

From the Enz valley at Mühlacker the Gäu trail leads up to the
hilltops of the “Gäu”. The hiker passes through open woodland, along thorny hedgerows and across shrubby grassland encountering on his way the remnants of prehistoric cultures.
In the town of Nagold the trail crosses the Nagold valley. Old coach houses and roadsigns indicating the time to the next
destinations are reminiscent of the former stagecoach line.
Beihingen in the Waldach valley and the pretty towns of
Haiterbach and Salzstetten with their half-timbered buildings
are stops on the way to Schopfloch.

Distance:        Mühlacker - Schopfloch - 99.0 km
