(visited by Thomas Barthel)

09-Jul-2018 -- During the summer holidays, direction Pyrenees and back to Germany, I had the chance to visit some confluence points.

From the Motorway ("Autobahn") A81 I took the exit 13 Mundelsheim and followed the road direction west. I crossed the Neckar River and passed Besigheim. On the road L1106 I reached Hohenhaslach. About 300 m behind the village I found a parking place and started the hike. Altogether, I had to walk about 850 m to reach the CP. The trail is marked with a blue cross on white underground. The track leads upwards from the parking position to the CP. After 120 m difference in altitude I reached the vicinity of the CP. 50 m before the exact location I found a very good information post regarding this confluence near the trail. Soon the exact location was found on a little hill, next to a bigger trail. This main trail is named "Kropfigweg". The pictures of the GPS and the geographical directions were taken quite soon. Some tracks on the main trail are implying a motocross route here. After walking back to the car, the tour continued further on, direction south-west. This visit took place about noontime. It was very hot and nobody took the trails or parked on the parking site during my stay there.

I was very happy about this first visit during the summer holidays.
