Schöne kurze Waderung mit vielen Wildkräutern und einer bezaubernden alten Mühle. Allerdings passen die Attribute "leicht" und familiengerecht in keinster Weise. Der Ab/Aufstieg vom/zum Gostnerhof durch den Wald ist eher in die Kategorie "schwer" einzustufen, ein steiniger Pfad durchzogen von Wurzeln und losem Geröll.
