Nice trail - it's long but a lot of it's pretty flat. I did it as an overnight. There are plenty of well maintained campsites along the way. I'm not a big fan of ending a hike with a 3-4 mile stretch down a road so if I were to do this again I'd park at the head of the yellow trail (Stoney Creek) and head back to the little schloss (purple) trailhead. That way you do the big stretch of gravel road at the start.
