One of the routes we took from Lake Mummelsse lead to the summit of Hornisgrinde. There were 3 miles of accessible trail that went through an interesting landscape of fir trees and native flora. As you ascended the summit, stunning images are left below the Lake, and that is when the horizon reveals the true image of the lush, dark forests of the Black Forest. At 1,164 m it becomes the best viewpoint of the Rhine Valley, the Vosges and even on a clear day Strasbourg France. We were interested in this route because when you reach the top you discover an entirely different picture to what you are used to seeing in the region.
