Directions to this wonderful tour

As soon as you have arrived at the playground at the starting point, follow the Wilder Gutach. It's located southeast of the parking lot next to the tennis court. He will accompany you on your way. There you turn left. As soon as you have reached the Ochsenbrücke, the path leads you to the right up into the forest.

Then come to the Black Forest cake on and here you can take the narrow path that leads you out of the forest at the top right. As soon as you have come out of the forest, it is now towards the chapel. You can then reach the chapel via a path in the meadow. Here you can take a closer look, enjoy the beautiful and wild nature and fresh air.

Of course you stay in nature on this circular route and follow a short forest path. The path takes you north after a short zigzag. There you can then take the footbridge down to the left into the Ettersbachtal. Here you are already on the last part of the way. Because as soon as you have found the Ettersbachtal, you come back to the Bärenbrücke and the starting point, the Sägplatz, which is located after turning into the left street via the Ettersbachstraße. The Wunderfitzpfad in Simonswald ends at this point.
