This circular observation trail starts at the Restaurant Jägerstübli (1559 m above sea level) and returns via Winterröscht (1759 m above sea level) and Färrichegg.
The trail is uphill from Lägerstutz, with a steep section leading through the forest at the trail’s highest point, then via a flat slope to Winterröscht. From there the trail leads back down to Färrichegg via Läger. The observation trail runs along an asphalted road between Färrichegg and Lägerstutz. The trail encompasses stunningly beautiful, diverse moorland areas.
To protect the vegetation and the animals, you should stay on the trails at all times.
Appropriate footwear; binoculars are recommended to allow you to observe the animals.
