Discovery Trail (Nr. 145)
The tour leads through a Swiss stone pine forest, where these ancient, gnarled trees along with larches line the snowshoe path. The objective is to find the Findeln hamlet, which is famous for its mountain restaurant and its inviting sunny terraces.

The forest is in part barren because the larch trees have dropped their needles. These fell from the larch branches at the beginning of winter and now lie dormant under the snow. If there is little snow, they add red colour to the ground cover. The old Swiss stone pine trees remain green and stand still in the crystal-clear winter air. Whoever remains absolutely still and does not move during a tour might see a squirrel or even deer.Outstanding view of the Matterhorn in Findeln.
