The climb from Lautenbach to Sohlberg
is one of the most beautiful in the Black Forest.
The quiet, narrow street winds itself up through a steep, beautiful valley
with meadows, fields and forests.
Early May the meadows are full with
dandelions and flowering fruit trees.
This ride is a great joy for the true climber.
The road is mostly steep (at least 8%)
and there are two sections where cyclists are truely tortured (up to 13%).
The route is easy to find
except when reaching the ridge of the hill.
Here one should turn sharply to the left
and continue straight at a junction 100 meters further on.
Another 300 meters are still missing to the finish
which is located at the place where the tarmac road turns to the right.
Pay attention when descending to Lautenbach
because the pavement is in a bad condition (2016) .
