Minor´s Trail

A hiking tour on the Miner’s Trail is of magnificient uniqueness. A landscape of natural beauty mixed with alpine pines between soaring mountains and further endemic high alpine plants is waiting for you. During summer only
sheeps and their shepards are living in this lonely but wonderful alpine area. But it wasn’t always that kind of a quiet place. 350 years ago mine workers faced harsh conditions in this high altitude. Up to 450 miners were searching for copper, galenite and pyrite in this remote area. Discover more about this unique landscape, the mysterious Puchersee and the people who have tried to cultivate this region since centuries.

The Minor´s Trail combines all these impressions and experiences. Discover 8 different routes for walkers and passionate hikers, ranging from 2 to 6 hours. Even children are likely to have no problem with the shorter distances.
