Trail StartThe Gutach River flows down from hills above the city of Triberg through the center of town.  A trail starts at the top of the tourist district and follows the cascading river along its course which makes it Germany's highest waterfalls.  Take a look at our Triberg Map to find the entrance and hiking route.

The river flows down over a series of cascades two kilometers long and five hundred meters high.  This steep trail climbs up through the forest above the town and provides numerous scenic points along the way.  Small wood huts and benches provide numerous resting points on the trail as it winds up the hillside.
