The trail up to and through the wooded gorge to the waterfall is guarded by the wooden statue (left) as well as tribes of red squirrels after the bags of nuts sold at the entrance.

The local 'one-man-band' (below) was also performing along the same trail.

The Triberg waterfall is one of the highest in Germany with a descent of 163 metres (between 711 and 872 metres above sea level).

The Gutach river plunges over seven major steps from a gently undulated high plain into the rocky V-shaped valley below.

The valley forms a basin just wide enough for the small town. The steep basin and the waterfalls were initially formed by two faults in the granite terrain and then by glaciers during several glaciations in the Pleistocene period.
