The walk itself is rated 'leicht' (easy), 3 hours and 12 km. The 3 hours is 'walking time' so time for photos, drinks, lunch, toilet breaks etc are extra. I would guess to allow an hour for lunch and maybe another 3/4 h for 'other stuff' would be fair...
Travel time is 51 minutes each way Nü Hbf <-> Grä. The train leaves Gräfenberg at 38 minutes past the hour every hour on a Sunday.
There is also the possibility to catch the bus back from Thuisbrunn (furthest point and probable lunch spot) or Hohenschwärz (interim point). The bus from Thuisbrunn is every two hours approx 10 past the hour and the bus from Hohenschwärz a few minutes later. The trip from Thuisbrunn is about 15 minutes so there is about 10 mins transfer time.
Phone reception isn't great. The track is pretty well marked but there are a few points where its possible to miss a turnoff. Track is fairly flat and mainly forest roads and across meadows. I will bring a couple of extra photocopies of the route for speedy gonzales or slow coaches.
I would think a realistic timeline could be: Protected content
11:15 drink break Protected content
12:30 lunch break (one hour)
1:30 start return leg
2:30 drink break Protected content
3:30 Gräfenberg
3:38 Train
