Profile Bäracker

Like almost all other climbs in the Wolfach-Schiltach-Triberg region, the climb to Bäracker contains a terribly steep section. Maybe that's why we hardly met other road cyclists in this region. The ascent begins in the valley of the Gutach River, just south of the village of Niederwasser. Always follow the signs "Hotel Schöne Aussicht", which is located in the immediate vicinity of the destination. The slope is yet pleasant in the first kilometer (5%) but when riding past two farms cycling becomes harder (9%). This is followed by a kilometer, through the forest, with a slope of 11%. However, this is only a prelude. After a right-angled bend to the right, climbing gets really serious with a kilometer of 13.9% and a 250 meter strip of 16%. Only after a farm the slope returns to a reasonably normal value (10%). The last kilometer to Bäracker is pretty easy.
