Roßfeld Nature Path teaches about Fauna and Flora of the region (in German only). It is an easy hike for people of every age. The wide and easy hiking trail first takes you down to Hüttecksattel mountain saddle and from there up to Roßfeld (meaning "steed meadow" or "steed fur"). The Roßfeld Nature Path is an extended variant of the "Bankerlweg" family trail. Up on the way to Roßfeld summit you pass by an 1000-year-old pine tree. On top the "summit sculpture" shows the coat of arms of Rohrmoos.
From the summit of Hochwurzen (1,852 m) the trail first heads East and you pass by the Hochwurzenhütte towards Hochwurzenalm (Hochwurzenalm is open only in winter). It then leads past the Hochwurzenalm and "Kleine Wurzen" (1,840 m) to the Hüttecksattel mountain saddle (1,744 m), continuing downhill to the trail crossing for Roßfeld. Along the outstandingly designed forest trail, we are greeted by numerous info boards with fascinating information about local flora and fauna. What’s that little flower growing over there? Which animals live here? And what’s the name of that mountain ? All of these »instructive« activities shorten the climb to the Roßfeld (1,919 m), and you’ll have the hike under your belt before you know it. The Roßfeld lies just beyond the tree line, affording glorious views of the surrounding mountains. Return via the same route and, if you want to, deepen your knowledge even more!
From Hochwurzen you can make your way downhill on the 7 km long Hochwurzenstraße road with Mountain Gokarts. Make your reservation for a Go Kart at Schi Lenz next to the valley terminal of Gipfelbahn Hochwurzen cable-car. Arriving back from the hike to Roßfeld you then can make your way downhill on the gokart :)
Experience the sunrise or sundown on Roßfeld. It is a simply unique and moving experience! To do so, you have to ascend/descend to Roßfeld either via trail #61 (via Hüttecksattel mountain saddle) or trail #773 (via Latterfußsattel mountain saddle).
