If you thought you had seen everything of the black lake from its car park, think again! This circular hike takes you to the heights of this small lake that has not said its last word. From below, it will charm you but from above, it will surprise you.
From the car park, follow the "blue circle" markings which will remain the same throughout the circuit. The beginning is a bit steep to get some height. The rest is gentler and without difficulty. Once at the top, you arrive on the high stubble fields, a typical landscape of the Vosges ridges. Continue walking to reach the source of the black lake at 1275m. A real haven of peace, stop for a moment to listen to the water trickle down and admire its transparency. A place of paradise where you can recharge your batteries. The hike continues along the ridge. From there, admire the breathtaking view of the lake, the valley, the Alsace plain and even the Black Forest on a clear day. Continue the walk with a round trip to the Belmont observatory, located halfway between the white lake and the black lake, where you can again enjoy a beautiful view of the valley. Return to the blue circle which will take you back to the starting point where you will follow open paths and forest.
