From the tourist information to the "Steffensberg" hotel. Here we cross the bridge and immediately turn left into the street "Im alten Tal". We follow the signpost E 3. The hiking trail leads us along gardens and the Großbach until we reach the street "Am Steffensberg". We follow the street on the right, pass the hotel "Dampfmühle" and turn left into the street "Großbachtal". After 50 m we reach the “Hinkelsplatz” and walk right into the Großbachtal following the signpost E 3. We walk past the "Neumühle" hotel to the old swimming pool (car park). Here we turn right into the forest path. After about 3 km we turn left, down into the valley. Here we have reached our goal at "two streams" (confluence of two streams). Now we hike through the Großbach valley following the stream, past the reservoir, fishing hut, Großbach mill, tennis courts, old swimming pool, back to Enkirch.


The way is easy to walk in sneakers.


The most beautiful seasons in the Großbachtal are spring at the flowering season and autumn when the leaves of the trees change color.
