A few rough patches if you're bringing a stroller (soft sand for trail), but still a great trail!

Fun trail. Definitely great for the entire family!

A favorite go-to trail near my home when I feel the need to take a relaxing stroll or trail run. Great shaded areas.

A very nice, mellow hike through Black Forest. I've done this in summer when things are dry and I've done it in the winter as a chance to try out some new snowshoes. All in all, it's a great place to hike!
