Gertelbach Wasserfalle

June 01, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

This was our our second trip to Gertelbach Waterfalls.  The path next to the stream is well marked and an easy hike up hill.  Recommendation is to go early.  We arrived at 0830 on Saturday and had the whole area to ourselves for about 2 hours.  By noon there were several groups in the area.

Location description:  "The Gertelbach originates in a source horizon between the lower red sandstone and granite Bühlertal - west of the Black Forest Road and ends after only 2.5 km in the (smaller) Wiedenbach . The creek overcomes approximately 330 meters. In the steepest section , about 800 m upstream of the mouth , the creek falls cascade 220 ​​feet deep in many cases levels of up to 7 m high . The main event area at the upper end of the valley terrace measures 70 meters."
