ZELL AM HARMERSBACH - radium spring - Lindach - Allmend - Nordrach (7 km)
- Lärchenhütte (3 km) - Sattelecke - Bergle – GENGENBACH (5 km)
Total: approx. 15 km
The start of this stage is the Stadtpfarrkirche Zell a.H. (citty church) (223 m) - past the "Ritter-von-Buß-Bildungszentrum" - to the end of the village - then uphill to the edge of the forest.
The trail leads from the Wassertretanlage (water treading facility) through the Zeller Stadtwald to the Radiumquelle (radium spring) - on to the Mattacker forest car park in the Nordrachtal valley - along the Nordrach river to Nordrach.
Passing the cemetery following the last big ascent up the forest we reach the "Lärchenhütte" (590 m) (pilgrims cross nearby). Downhill we continue to Satteleck (344 m) and on the ridge path between Hüttersbach and Pfaffenbach to the "Teufelskanzel" (400 m).
In serpentines we hike down to the Gengenbacher "Bergle" with its chapel Jakobuskapelle (Pieta as picture of grace / St. Jakobus in pilgrim's robe). The last descent takes us to the former imperial city of Gengenbach (172 m).
