Refreshed we climb the steep Ameisenbühl incline on a nature trail and marvel at the dramatic rocky Rutschenfelsen cliffs opposite, which is our next destination. Taking the path parallel to the slope along the dramatic geological landscape, we take in the fantastic views over the Maisental valley and over the surrounding hills. Follow the path continuing over the plateau, we cross the "Rohrauer Hütte" and we reach a farm track and the beginning of the famous Marbach stud estate. Directly in front of us we can rest at a picnic area before crossing through the stud farm, along the signposted route.
A natural stone path sweeps through the woods down to the former Charterhouse Güterstein, past the Gutersteiner waterfall, until the foot of the slope. We turn first right, then immediately left and walk on a path towards Bad Urach through the orchards of the Maisental valley. Finally, we turn right onto a farm road, taking us around the vast paddock and then leading back to our starting point, the car park Maisental (P23).
