On our second day in Les Vosges we did another hike. This time we started near Wildestein from where we ascended towards col Pourri Fang where we had lunch in a beautiful forest. From there we headed to Col de Bramont which is a small ascended further up the mountain. After that we continued on to Rainkopf following a trail which obviously wasn't used much. On some places it was difficult to follow, but it was the best part of the entire hike. From Rainkopf we planned to climb two other cols, but the weather started to look grim so after enjoying the views from Rainkopf we started our descend back down to Wildestein which took us two hours. On the way down it started to rain with a small thunderstorm, so we were happy we decided to go back down. During the descend we saw three chamois (which is a type of goat-antelope) and an eurasian jay.
Bellow you'll find some pictures and a GPS track log of this hike:
