From the town centre below the parish church of St. Ulrich (360 m) we follow the Hansjakobweg and turn left to cross the Kleine Kinzig. We follow a slope to Vortal Wittichen with its former Clarissine monastery. Through the Zundelgraben we reach the salt lick (first pilgrims cross).
We hike to the turning point "Auf der Hex" (781 m), up to Sättelkopf (815m), from there to the "Hinterhals" and to Teufelsstein (749 m). The descent to St. Roman takes us past the pilgrimage church and the inn “Adler”. First we ascend to the "Kreuzacker" (707 m) with its pilgrims cross and then we descend into the Ippichertal - from the Schillingerhof past the Jakobsbauernhof to Vor Ippichen (280 m) then over the B294, over a wooden Kinzig footbridge (Serrersteg), over the "Vogtsbächle" (station path) to the pilgrimage church St. Jakob. The path continues down to Wolfach (263 m) - through the town to the town hall - the end of the 2nd stage.
