Short walk through the forest. It used to show how the forest recovers from the storm in 1999. Now after so many years the forest has returned. Just a few fallen trunks remind of the disaster. Good for a road stop though. Ideal for a short break, children will love the wooden bridges. Free car park. No facilities. Trail not suitable for prams.

This unprepossessing road stop alongside the Schwarzwaldhochstrasse is worth a stop. There is a very well constructed wooden walkway that takes you a little into the woods, with lookout towers to climb and other interesting constructions. You can follow the path all the way and it brings you back to the far end of the car park.

We heard about the storm and as we were in the Black Forest, it seemed only natural to view first hand the powers of nature. We were astonished to find the amount of destruction caused by the storm in 1999 in the once fully fledged forest. The storm flattened everything it swept across, toppling small tress and giant one. So sad to see a large tree, roots pointing upwards to the sky. The area has been made accessible to the public in a very clever, natural and aesthetic manner by the authorities. There are small bridges, paths, steps, maps, land lookout posts-all constructed out of...wood of course. Trails guides stating distances along trails from short walks to longer. We were very impressed. Impressive too is the way nature is reliving and overcoming the disaster by the natural process of self renewal. VERY MUCH RECOMMENDED.

You read so much about this path, but when we came, most of it was closed down due to some maintenance or technical problem or and I or something like that

We got information of the place in the local tourist office and we drove there without many expectatives but we had a great surprise. The path is a boardwalk in a recovered area with really good points during the walk. When we finished the visit our daughter (6 years old) wanted to repeat, she really had a good time.
The visit and the parking are free

Very interesting to see how a forest recovers with no human interference. Also great for a short hike or as starting point for a longer one as there is access by public transportation from Freudenstadt.

This is a small area of moorland and woods with a path that mostly consists of wooden walkways. There is a lookout from which you can get a panoramic view over the trees. Lots of interesting twists and turns, climbs and descents and beautiful root patterns on fallen trees. An hour or so of fun for kids large and small.

Having visited the lotharpfad site a few days after it happened and then later after a tourist walkway had been constructed it was interesting to return to see how nature had taken over. We could still see signs of the initial disastrous storm, and the walkway that was constructed to facilitate walking round the worst of the fallen timber with some beautiful photo opportunities. But nature is fighting back and I was amazed at the regrowth. Work was ongoing with renewal of some walkways. We chose to walk the panoramweg, a circular trip which was very easy walking and affording great views ( as long as the haze over the Rhine valley does not spoil them.) well worth a walk around.

This trail is very short and excellent for kids or older folks. It was a good warm up for us as well. The trail is well marked and very well
Maintained.

This is a one kilometre boardwalk that takes you through the regrowing pine trees in the path of hurricane lothar. You can see the regrowth in the trees and the undergrowth and get some good views across wide stretches of pine forest.
