Especially for families with children, the Lothar path should be a highlight, as it either goes along planks or up and down a narrow path. The Lothar path is about 1km long and a round can be done in about 20-25 minutes. With breaks and, if necessary, enjoying the view from the platform, of course, may also last longer.The so-called woodpecking trail is currently still being created. A path that will only run on wide planks and is therefore also suitable for prams and wheelchairs. It will also end up on a small viewing platform. However, this path will not replace the Lothar path, but should rather be seen as a link between the forest and the Grinden. It partially crosses the Lothar path, but generally runs somewhat north (from the start on the right) of the Lothar path.

At Christmas 1999, Orkan Lothar swept over the slopes of the Black Forest and shaved off most of the trees. In the area of the Lotharpath the storm throw was not eliminated and left to itself. Initially, a trail led through the fallen trees (and above and below), meanwhile, the Lotharpfad is mostly designed as a wooden walkway.
Highly interesting to observe the changes over the years. A wonderful promenade with small climbing opportunities and viewing platform.
For prams, wheelchairs and people who are poor on foot, but unfortunately not suitable (so not at all), as stairs and rocky sections must be overcome.
Currently (Stand 09-18) is built on a barrier-free web, which should have crossing points with the actual path. When the will be ready, but there was not specified. Therefore, inform in advance or take a stretcher for infants, at least as a precaution.
