Good run path, a little crowded at time. Very gradual inclines when present. Mostly shaded.

very nice trail, especially on a hot sunny day. Mostly in the Woods. several beautifull Picknick Spots and points of Interest.

Overall a great trail, just know that the trail is still closed at about the 6 mile point, forcing you to turn around and making it and out-and-back, vs a round trip. I saw something about this on a German site, but since no other reviews mentioned it I assumed it had been fixed in the two years since it was washed out in 2016. It's still a worthwhile hike and you'll still have access to both castles. I saw evidence of people going around the "trail closed" sign, but I didn't feel comfortable trying that since I was hiking alone and don't really speak German. Also, it took me a minute to figure out that none of the signs say "Baumgeister". It's clearly labelled, but it's called the "Rundtour" or Round Tour. If you follow the signs for Burg Rheinstein you'll be on the right track. These are probably things known to all locals, I just wanted to let fellow foreigners know.
For the trail itself, 90% of it was fairly easy. It's mostly level and well-maintained trails. There's a little bit of climbing down-to and up-from the castle(s), but it's nothing too daunting.

Really a great trail. Almost completely shaded for the entire hike. There are plenty of intersections and although the trail is well marked I would recommend downloading the map prior to making the whole loop. The castle is worth the small fee (5.50) to visit. Also some neat small waterfalls along the creek back up after the castle not mentioned above.

Prachtige wandeling en heerlijk geluncht halverwege de route. Echte aanrader.

Beautiful trail. Most of it runs parallel to a stream, and there are even a few places to stop along the way for a picnic lunch or a sit down restaurant. It was raining when I went, so if it's the same for your trip, be prepare with hardy boots!
