The Hansjakobweg II (also: Großer Hansjakobweg) is a five-day circular hiking route through the central Black Forest from Haslach in the Kinzig valley back to Haslach. The approximately 93 km long hiking trail is named after the Baden folk writer and pastor Heinrich Hansjakob (1837–1916). The path was inaugurated in 1983 and is maintained and looked after by the Black Forest Association.

The path sign is a white diamond with a black Hansjakobhut, the headgear with which Heinrich Hansjakob is depicted in many contemporary pictures and photographs. In addition to the signposting with the signpost, there are explanatory boards at all sights, which mainly refer to the life and work of Hansjakob.
