The 737 m high Rosskopf is a mountain in the Black Forest in the northeast of Freiburg and the southeast of Gundelfingen. It is on the edge of the territory of the city between the Glotter valley and the Dreisam valley. On the Roßkopf the borders of Gundelfingen, Freiburg and the formerly independent municipality Ebnet meet. Several border stones in the forest give evidence of the development of the municipal boundaries.
The section of the Kandel trail from Sankt Peter, Baden-Württemberg to Freiburg crosses the mountain. The Rosskopf is a mountain for mountain bikers and easy to reach from Freiburg and the surrounding villages. Only some of the trails have been released for cyclists and parts of the forest on the Roßkopf are under special protection as protected forest. Below the tower on the Roßkopf is the starting point for an approximately two miles long downhill trail that starts on the Rosskopf and leads to the youth hostel of Freiburg.
