Enjoying nature is not necessarily the strongest point of this climb.
The first half (six kilometers) of the ride a road
with dense traffic leads
through the villages of Bühl, Altschweier and Bühlertal.
During the second half on the trip there is much less traffic
but the road passes through a dense forest,
which allows hadly any views.
The ride starts in the center of Bühl.
The first six kilometers through the villages begin almost horizontally
and then gradually become steeper
to reach 7% at the end.
On entering the forest
a really steep section (more than two kilometers of 10%) follows.
Only after a sharp turn to the right
the bike ride will become slightly easier again (8%).
Soon one will get to
where one can enjoy some views down into the valley.
From Weidenfelsen still one and a half kilometers (8-9%)
are left until at Sand, the destination of the ascent,
the Schwarzwaldhochstraße is reached.
