the Engelhorner. After about 30 minutes you will face a choice: you can push on straight ahead or detour to the right towards an extremely picturesque spot where you make your first acquaintance with the Reichenbach. The 30 minute walk to Rosenlaui (1328m) is mostly through woodland, and it pays to keep an eye open for hazardous tree roots. The river bed is very wide and shallow with its many rivulets meandering between light coloured rocks. From time to time it crosses the looping single track road that is mercifully traffic free, apart from post buses, as far as Schwarzwaldalp.
