ATTENTION: please DO NOT pick and consume wild berries along the way! The aim of the tour is to leave nature untouched.
Seasonal weather events or forest maintenance work may cause damage, obstructions and/or trail obstructions due to e.g. fallen branches. Therefore, please wear hiking shoes appropriate for the trail, which will give you sufficient grip even on uneven and steep or rocky paths.
Especially in autumn, be aware that leaves lying on the ground can hide possible bumps, roots, stones or holes in the path and it could become particularly slippery.
If you have a stroller with you it must be terrain resistant as obstacles can occur. Please be sure to always watch out for bumps here that could lead to the risk of injury.
Feringa Lake Stay:
The use of the terrain as well as bathing is at your own risk. For non-swimmers there is danger to life due to the depth of the water. Therefore, please be extra careful and watch your children/dogs as this area has no safety barriers or bathing supervision.
Due to cercariae in the water, skin redness or itching may occur, accordingly bathing is at your own risk. (see sign at the entrance from the Landratsamt Munich).
If you decide to hike this route in winter we would like to point out that the paths in the recreation area around the Feringasee are not cleared and not gritted. Please be aware of the risk of slipping and injury.
