Ascent Trip Report

I slept in my car at the parking, because all the campsites in the Harz area were completely packed, and in general the area really busy (too busy!). This meant I could start my walk at 0600, an excellent decision as I saw noone for the first 16km, and by the time I was descending Brocken, the groups were starting to pour in (or train in as also possible to Brocken summit). The routes between the parking, Wurmberg, Brocken etc are numerous, and all well marked and well kept. The area is extremely developed for all levels of tourist, so those seeking quiet nature, avoid these 2 summits! Lovely area for wandering in general though, and quiet off the main routes.
