Turn-by-turn directions

To begin, the path leads us past Mösle car park to a small village made up of a collection of impressive old Black Forest farms. We hike at half the valley elevation to destinations such as the “Schwarzberg”, where we turn left. Once past the “Brändler” and “Im Geschweih”, we go left and downhill. At “Moränen-Monschderle”, we go up to the head of the valley, where you can get advice about rafting. We will keep right along the Schotterweg Trail, have a rest at Flößer’s Rast (Rafter’s Rest), and enjoy the view. On the following trail, we cross the Menzenschwand Alps over a wooden bridge with stunning views of the Klusenbach Valley. Past the old Köhler-Platz, the trail goes down into the valley. The rest area in the valley is perfect for admiring the Menzenschwand Waterfall or anyone prefers to rest, can keep to the right to reach a “Schesslong dü Boah” (a forest sofa – a kind of curved wooden bench made of horizontal planks). Here, we have the opportunity to stop at Café & Berg-Beizle (a restaurant in the mountains) “Zum Kuckuck”. Afterwards, we will follow the asphalt path uphill for a little while until we get to the viewing platform. From there, the trail goes through a small gorge over the Weidberg, which is a natural spring and a particularly beautiful, small alder grove, a source of both radon and fluorite. Crossing a bridge over the Krunkelbach (stream), we will come to the Brandweg trail, a small field cleared to check the spread of forest fires. We will cross this and follow the trail above the drystone wall over the Krunkelbach Meadow towards east. After approximately 500 m, we will leave the Weidberg, follow the Teerweg (Brandweg) trail to the Säge Hut. Then we go north over the small Ellerwegle Trail to the starting point, the Mösle car park. From here, we have another breath-taking view of the Schwarzberg.

Mein Fazit fällt gemischt aus. Die ersten 2 Drittel des Weges gefielen uns sehr. Das letzte Drittel fiel da etwas gegen ab. Allerdings hatten auch wir Probleme mit der Beschilderung an zwei Stellen. Was mir außerdem gefehlt hat, war der engere Bezug zu den "Geißen". Hätte mir mehr Hinweistafeln zum Thema gewünscht. So ist der Name leider nicht Programm wie auf einigen anderen schönen Genießerpfaden. Trotzdem ein sehr schöner Wanderweg in wunderschöner Gegend. Uns hat er sehr gefallen! ... Alles Details und viele Fotos und Tipps zu unserer Wanderung auf dem Geißenpfad finden sich auch auf meinem Blog: https://www.erkunde-die-welt.de/2016/09/22/menzenschwand-geissenpfad/
