In addition to the mountain meadows, you will see mountain heaths, Mat Grass fields and montane tall forb communities with Alpine Blue Sow Thistle and Pond Water Crowfoot on your way around the circular trail.
In good weather you have a good chance of seeing the emblem of the Mountain Meadow Trail, the glossy-orange Scarce Copper butterfly.
As in any nature reserve, dogs have to be on a leash but special consideration is required in order not to frighten the grazing animals.
