The Soonwaldsteig trail passes the municipality of Hahnenbach and continues to the Steinbach Valley. At the beginning of the valley, the trail switches onto the western bank of the River Hahnenbach. North of Sonnschied, near the Rudolfshaus, you will reach a tranquil section of the Hahnenbach Valley, which is not accessible by road. On the way to the end of the stage, the hikers' car park at the Herrenberg slate quarry, you will see some relics of the slate mining industry (a light railway, tunnels and slag heaps). The Herrenberg mine itself, the neighbouring Celtic settlement of Altburg and, towards the end of the stage, Schmidtburg Castle, can all be easily explored on foot.
