Hochrhein Höhenweg, Basel - Schaffhausen, 125 km, 6 days
The southern edge of the Black Forest abruptly ends at the Rhine valley between Schaffhausen and Basel. Rivers like the Wehra, Murg and Alb dug themselves deep into the rock. From the steep slopes one has good views of the Swiss Jura and Alps in the south, and the higher parts of the Black Forest in the north. Nice walk if you love wide views and don't mind to climb and descend a lot.
