Last minute hike close to Heidelberg on Sunday

So far, it looks like the weather might be nice on Sunday (some sun and cold but not freezing) - assuming it stays this way, could be a nice day for a shortish hike.

The route takes us either side of the Neckar from Zeigelhausen to Neckargemünd and back - mostly through the forest, and with lots of outlook points for views of the river.

 

 

The 14km hike should last about 4 hours, taking us first across the river to Ziegelhausen, where we'll warm up with short steep uphill to the path that takes us along the side of the valley to Kleingemünd. Here we'll cross the river again before a long uphill (200m climb) to Lisenteich - where we will stop at a hut in the dry for a late, short lunch before the fairly gradual decent back down to Schlierbach.

Starting point: Heidelberg:Ziegelhausen-Schierbach at 11:05  (shortly after the train from Heidelberg / Mannheim arrives.)

For anyone coming from Heidelberg by train - the train leaves at 10:55 from Heidelberg HBF.  I will go from there.  I'd suggest anyone going from here too meet at 9:40 outside the tourist information building (which is outside, close to the main station entrance); we can then see how many job tickets we have and if anyone needs an extra ticket.

Please wear clothes suitable for the weather and ideally hiking shoes ( trainers with very good grip should also be okay, but the paths may be slippy due to ice / leaves).  You;ll also need water and a packed lunch. We'll eat quite late so you may want to also bring some snacks.

Note: this is a repeat of a hike we did in April: http://www.meetup.com/rhein-neckar-hiking/photos/14577442/
