Karlstal Gorge Loop Trail
Start/Finish: Parking lot next to the town hall, Trippstadt village center
Address: Hauptstrasse 51, 67705 Trippstadt
Phone: +49 (6371) 13 00012
The wild and romantic Karlstal Gorge is considered one of the most beautiful hiking destinations in the Palatinate Forest because of its red sandstone rocks, numerous small waterfalls, and ancient stock of trees. The Moosalb creek winds its way through the largely untouched rocky gorge. In 1780 the landscape architect Friedrich Ludwig von Sckell, who also designed the English Garden in Munich, was commissioned to transform and redesign the landscape garden around Trippstadt Castle and the layout of the Karlstal Gorge was part of this project. A path runs beside the creek over small wooden bridges. In the middle of the gorge, you will reach a small wooden pavilion, which is a popular photo subject. In 1983 the valley was declared a nature reserve, primarily because of its geological importance and the fact that it was equipped with rock heaps and mighty boulders. Almost all fern species found in the Palatinate Forest can be discovered here. 170 species have been identified in the rich moss flora, including 31 rare and 13 very rare ones.
