A major goal of the Hohe Schrecke - Alter Wald mit Zukunft e.V. association is to develop the region into a popular recreational and excursion destination in a way that is compatible with nature. Many measures have already been initiated and implemented in recent years, also with the active support of local residents and companies, not least the development of an attractive network of cycling and hiking trails. In order to continue to be perceived as an interesting region, it is necessary to create tourist highlights. Such points of attraction also enable visitors to be guided in order to relieve sensitive forest areas.
The suspension rope bridge in Bärental serves as a further component of sustainable tourism development.
