The Lynx trail lets you experience the forest through the eyes of a lynx. This adventure trail of around four kilometres in length leads through woodland in which a lynx would feel at home. Plenty of interesting information and activity stations make it an enjoyable experience for the whole family – as well as all those who simply like walking. The Luchspfad was established as a joint project between the Nature Park, the municipality of Baden-Baden and the Baden-Württemberg section of the nature conservation society NABU. Since the area is now part of the National Park, the National Park Administration now maintains this excellent path and also offers guided tours.
