The unique wildlife observation trail leads from Niederbauen to the Stockhütte or via Heitliberg to Klewenalp. The outing lasts between three and four-and-a-half hours depending on the itinerary.

The trail benefits from 16 info-panels describing the local wildlife and 12 species of bird. The moorland in the Niederbauen region is unique and therefore protected.

The wildlife moves around according to the seasons. The expert guide knows the best places for observing the fauna.
