We're talking about a great one here Children's trail for young and old. The perfect place as a family to feel the pulse of nature again. All the fun lasts about 2 hours, in which both children and adults can learn a lot. The path stretches for a total of 4,2 kilometers and offers a lot of variety.

The tracker path

At the start of the path by the parking lot at the former ski lift in Dead moss-Trick, the families receive a booklet. This is needed to solve puzzles and to write down clues - don't forget your pen! During the search, the children overcome various stations, such as a climbing course, or they get to know different forest dwellers. The path primarily asks 2 questions What is missing? and who stole it? What has disappeared seems to be incredibly important for Todtmoos. If the answer in the booklet has been solved correctly, there will be a great surprise at the tourist information office.

The adults should be particularly fascinated by the viewpoints.

The Rudolf-Jordan-Hütte is particularly suitable for resting and enjoying the beautiful view!

As on most hiking routes, the main season here is from May to October. Since the path leads upwards on narrow paths at the beginning, it is not suitable for pushchairs. The path is best suited for children who can already read and write. You can also learn a lot about the forest dwellers Auerhahn, Fox, eagle owl and co.

Lending options

Families can, for example, borrow a child's backpack or a backpack with various research utensils from the Todtmoos Tourist Info. Both could be very helpful when tackling the sniffing nose path in Todtmoos.
