The Black Forest East Trail from Pforzheim to Schaffhausen is a long-distance north-south hiking route of around 245 km through the Black Forest that can be completed in twelve daily stages.
1st stage: Pforzheim - Bad Liebenzell (approx. 25 km) .
We start the Black Forest East Trail at the Kupferkammer (copper chamber) and hike first through the Würmtal to the Liebeneck ruins and then on via Hamberg and past the Steinegg ruins to Neuhausen. Via the Monbachbrückle we finally reach the Monbachtal and shortly afterwards Bad Liebenzell.
2nd stage: Bad Liebenzell - Oberhaugstett (approx. 21 km)
At the very beginning of our second stage we hike to the Wolfschlucht gorge near Ernstmühl and on to Hirsau, a suburb of Calw. There you will find the old Aurelius monastery ruins from the 11th century, which are definitely worth a visit. We leave Hirsau and walk past the Zivalstein hikers' hostel and a ruined castle and arrive at Oberhaugstett via Bad Teinach.
<Stage 3: Oberhaugstett - Pfalzgrafenweiler (approx. 22 km) .
We hike past the village of Wart to Berneck Castle and then on via Altensteig, the Kohlsägemühle and the Zinsbachmühle to Pfalzgrafenweiler.
