Our hike begins at the car park at the hall in Gaildorf. From here we take the footpath up to the cemetery street and then turn left past the hospital in the direction of Kleinaltdorf. We now cross the wooden bridge at the Kocher and turn left to the B19 federal road. After crossing the road at the traffic lights, turn left into the Bahnstrasse and follow it through the village across the railway tracks into the fields. At the end of the village, turn left and then right towards the forest. At the next fork, go straight ahead and continue on the Eselbergweg through the forest. We follow the path straight on and come to the edge of the forest. After a few hundred metres we reach a playground with a shelter (Spöck). Here we can rest and enjoy the wonderful view of Gaildorf, its surroundings and the Kocher valley.
From the playground, we walk along Bühlstra;e into the village of Spöck and continue to „Lange Straße“, which takes us to Ottendorf. At the church we cross the B19 again and walk past an inn to the bottom of the valley at the Kocherbrücke. We continue üvia Raiffeisenstra;e through fields to „Vier Linden“, where we turn right onto the hiking trail „Blaukreuz“ to Großaltdorf and from here üvia the trail „Blaustrich“ to Gaildorf. We return to the starting point of our tour via Eutendorfer Straß and Schloß Straß.
