  In Marren veeeeery early in the morning.

If you do not want to walk or cycle uphill the way to Süßen, the neighbour village towards Göppingen, is a good option.

Coming from B 10, turn left after the Rathaus (town hall) and go straight ahead for about 1km, then, at the last roundabout of Gingen, turn right and follow the signs of the official cycling track.

You can continue to Donzdorf on the Lautertal-Radweg (bicycle track). In this case, when the track meets the first official road of Süßen, turn sharply to the right and follow the signs.

Either walk or cycle back the same way (safe option LOL) – or finish the loop through a forest named Marren (but only if you do not mind a short but steep uphill section).

For this, when having reached Donzdorf, you have to navigate your way to your right up the hill, towards the forest. Turn to the right and walk or cycle parallel to the forest until a street named Gingener Weg turns to the right. Take this turn, and then follow this street which will soon be an unsealed white sandy gravel track. When you reach a fork, take the option to the right. Soon you will reach Gingen. Johanneskirche is so dominant and visible from everywhere that you will find your way back to the centre without a problem.

BTW If you take the wrong arm at the fork you will also reach Gingen at some point, you will just spend more time in the forest… ;-) If you are wrong, do not turn to the left. This will lead you back into the forest, and you will get lost, as there are no signs at all. The signs you see are only the names of the different sections of the forest.
