The farm track is wide and can be easily managed using the Swiss-Trac. After ca. 1.5 km you will pass a chapel.

ZirbenPark Circular Route

Start
Mittelstation of the mountain lift Hochzeiger (2031m)
Finish
Mittelstation of the mountain lift Hochzeiger (2005m)
Swiss Trac Tour: It is a level road to get to the ticket office at the valley station of Hochzeiger gondola from the car park. From there, take a lift to the gondola access on the first floor. Right next to the lift on the ground floor is a wheelchair-accessible toilet. Entry to the gondola is via a mobile ramp. The gondola can accommodate wheelchairs with a maximum width of 60 cm. The Swiss-Trac can be transported in the same gondola or in the following gondola by accompanying persons. At the top station the gondola staff will again be of assistance to exit the gondola with a mobile ramp. Adjacent to the top station of the gondola you will find the catered mountain hut “Zeigerrestaurant”. It can be accessed across a meadow, which is hard to navigate and then via a ramp with a considerable gradient. There is a wheelchair-accessible toilet in the basement which is, however, not easy to find as it is not incorporated in the signposted area. Please note that during the summer part of the lift is covered by banners and making it hard to spot. The toilet is spacious and offers enough room for turning circles.

Starting at “Zeigerrestaurant” follow the beautifully laid-out 1.5 km long “Zirben” [pine] trail. Please note that there are large sections with a steep incline on loose gravel surface and taking this route is only advisable for experienced Swiss-Trac users. The steeper section passing the “Zirbenzapfen” [pine cone] with a big slide can, however, be bypassed by only taking part of the route. After approx. 2/3 of the trail, you will reach another catered mountain hut, “Tanzlalm”. Unfortunately neither the restaurant nor the ground floor toilets are suitable for wheelchair users. The last third of the trail back to the “Zeigerrestaurant” features a steep uphill section. 

Hike to Taschachalm mountain hut

Start

The trail is 1.5 km long and is manageable with the Swiss-Trac in approx. 30 minutes. The terrace can be accessed via a wooden ramp. The spacious terrace of the catered mountain hut “Taschachalm” offers beautiful views of the mountains that are part of Rifflsee ski resort during the winter season. The toilets are in the basement but this can also be accessed via a side entrance from the outside. Here, only one step must be mounted. The toilet cubicle is 115 cm wide and 190 cm deep. The door is 80 cm wide.

From the top station of the Glacier Express, follow the signposts downhill towards the glacier in the direction of the catered mountain hut Braunschweigerhütte. Follow the markings across the glacier. Caution: depending on the conditions, crampons may be advisable! After crossing the glacier, ascend to the Braunschweigerhütte. Once there, initially follow the Jägersteig [hunter’s trail] down into the valley until you reach the “Notweg” [emergency path] then passing the catered mountain hut Gletscherstube back down to the bottom station of the Glacier Express in Mittelberg.  

Large ´Harbeweiher´ [pond] circular route

Start
Nature Park Centre at Gachenblick (1584m)
Finish
Nature Park Centre at Gachenblick (1583m)
As with the small Harbeweiher pond circular hike, with your back turned to the Nature Park Centre, turn right on the farm road in a southerly direction. Follow this road to a fork and also turn right in the direction of Harbeweiher pond. Unlike the small Harbeweiher pond circular route, continue to follow this road past a fantastic viewing point until you reach the Harbeweiher pond. This pond is an extremely untouched and wild, romantic area not far from the Nature Park Centre and lends itself perfectly for nature lovers who do not want to cover long distances. After a short ascent, you will have reached the highest point and can then return on a forest road to the other side of the Nature Park Centre.

Continue past the sports grounds and keep left to cross the Walderbach brook to get to the hamlet of Hohenegg (Erdpyramiden, engl. ‘earth pillars‘) For the way back turn left at the chapel and follow a picturesque track to the Walderbach stream, visit the waterfall – the 10 minute detour is well worth it – and follow the country road for the last stretch to return to the starting point.

Continue on forest paths and over a short difficult passage (rocks, secured with fixed ropes) to reach Burgstall at the top. Past the radio mast, continue to the exit of the rocky track and then to the Adlerhorst viewing platform. At what is truly a breathtaking height, you can enjoy the view of the surrounding mountains and the track which runs directly below. The way back leads over the Burgstall, with a beautiful view of Leins and W ald villages,
