There follows a short, steep ascent followed by a descent towards the train station. After crossing the B462, a short ascent to Schwarzenberg. Shady areas of forest line the further course through the increasingly narrow Murg valley.

The asphaltic trail continues through the villages of Au im Murgtal to Weisenbach. On the B462 you arrive to Hilpertsau. From there, continue along side streets through the old town of Gernsbach, the rafts-men village Hörden, Gaggenau and Unimog Museum and Kuppenheim to the end of the tour, the Rastatt train station.
