Start of the 3rd stage is opposite the Wolfacher town hall (263 m).
We walk through the Kirchgasse, over the Gassensteg. After the bridge over the river Wolf we go uphill to the memorial (350 m), then further on the Hofeckleweg over a serpentine path up to the height above the Hapbachtal (beautiful views of Kinzig and Wolf valleys with ruins of the ancestral castle of the Lords of Wolva).
At the White Cross (500m) the path turns right, after 100m it joins a forest road. The shell signs lead you to the inviting restaurant Käppelehof with its pilgrimage shrine, the Wendelinus chapel.
A road to transport wood leads to Hausach. From the residential area "Hinterhof" the way leads over the Kinzig to the Kinzig dam, from there through the railway underpass to the Hausacher Stadtkirche (town church). Downstream, Dietersbachstrasse branches off to the left of the main road and you reach the Jakobsbrunnen fountain at the Hausach village church of St. Mauritius. The route leads uphill, past a pilgrim's cross, to the height of the upper Sulzbach creek. Follow the panoramic path until Bannstein and then turn left down to Mühlenbach (260 m).
(two representations of Jakobus in the church / two gravestones in the church wall).
Continue down the valley - along the Waldsee (forest lake) to Haslach (220 m), the final destination of this stage.
