Hirzenleck (Eigenturm), Herrenwald

Another early Start while being in Basel with the River-ship Oscar Wilde. To be precise I started at 3:30 am already along the Rhine River in the City, easy to follow the Streets in the Night but got a bit more challenging following the Westway up to Hornfelsen with no proper Light. The Path is well marked and easy to follow towards Sankt Chrischona which I hiked last week but by another Route. The last part up is along the Swiss / German Border. Lots of Cars at the Parking Lot below the Church. Another Road-walk and past the Communication Tower towards and across a Field (GroßFeld) get you on good Forest Roads towards the Summit of Hirzenleck which is also called and marked on the Topo map as Eigenturm. Great views from the Lookout Tower in a 180 degree direction. Soon I was on my way back, initially following my ascent path but turning towards the Village of Inzling on my way to Herrenwald. Mostly well marked Trails to follow but at one point I ended up on fenced Private Property which I followed on the Outside to get me back on track. In the Village of Izlingen I took a few Pictures of the Water Castle before heading up to Herrenwald. Made a few Shortcuts here and there through the Forest but did not safe any time. Once on the Ridge I crossed the Border a few more times what is also called Iron Finger and lots of interesting History around WW2 and thereafter. Not really much to see and not clear what is the Highpoint on the Forested Plateau. I just made sure to reach the Peakbagger Highpoint Location which is on the side of the Road but not marked as such. Again following the Border which is marked with Old and Colorful Survey Stone Pillars and a few Information Boards about the History of the area. There are many well marked trails to follow as I went down towards Riehen und Basel to get me back to the Ship passing the Three Country Location along the Way.
