In addition to the ascents beginning in Freiburg
and the Münstertal,
this is the third option to climb by bike to the Schauinsland.
It includes some very steep sections.
We begin the ascent, coming on the L126 from Kirchzarten,
at the first exit to Oberried.
First the road winds through Oberried, parallel along the main road.
When leaving the village, one takes the main road again.
We follow the busy road, which is initially not that steep (mostly 3-5%), to the south.
After three and a half kilometers, near the junction to St. Wilhelm,
the road gets considerably steeper (9-10%).
One and a half kilometer further, at the Bergwildpark Steinwasen,
we then turn to the right in the direction of Hofsgrund.
The road remains wide and steep (still 9-10%) but it is more quiet here.
Just before getting to Hofsgrund,
the first very steep section (13%) has to be overcome.
In the village itself, the slope becomes somewhat milder (7-8%).
After driving past a church on the right side of the road,
the route turns to the right at a parking lot
to take a hard (slope up to 13%) but quiet short-cut.
First the road bends back towards the church and then turns left.
Then, at an intersection, continue straight and turn again right and left.
One kilometer after the parking lot, the agony ends when the Panoramastrasse (L124) is reached.
here we turn to the right
to roll easily (3%) one more kilometer to the finish.
