Fitness parcour and forest information trail in the forest (next to Waldschänke inn, Kickendorf)

The forest information trail was built in 1990 by voluntary work of the members of the Friends of Nature. For the idea and the compilation of the data and descriptions, chairman Helmut Kunze is responsible. The data was distributed on 12 information boards which were set up along the Fitweg. They are divided into:

  • 1 board "This is how the forest lives"
  • 2 boards "This is the life of the tree"
  • 4 panels "Why do we need the forest"
  • 2 panels "This is how the forest dies"
  • 1 board "Harmful pictures"
  • 2 boards "What can we do against it"

Furthermore, 13 tree species were described very precisely according to their occurrence, habitat and use and directly labeled:

  1. bird cherry
  2. rowan
  3. English oak
  4. littleleaf linden
  5. black elder
  6. larch
  7. common spruce
  8. mountain elm
  9. mountain maple
  10. black alder
  11. Douglas fir
  12. fir
  13. beech

The "Fitweg" (fitness parcour) is embedded in a small part of the communal forest (Zehetholz). It consists of 12 stations that were completely renewed in 1998. Therefore, the range of exercises and the equipment correspond to the most modern medical knowledge of training and gymnastics. The circuit should be completed in four rounds.

  1. round: warm-up and stretching
  2. round: exercises on the equipment
  3. round: exercises on the apparatus
  4. round: stretching

The idea and composition of the exercises for the fitness trail also came from chairman Helmut Kunze. It was again built and renewed by volunteers of the Naturefriends Grieskirchen.
