The path was built on the initiative of Dir. Eduard Sulzbacher in July 1991 as a nature trail. 

Author’s recommendation

Sturdy shoes are recommended for walking on the forest trail! After rainy periods, the path is not recommended, as it is wet and slippery.

Bad Heilbrunn- Start Salza Reservoir

Turn-by-turn directions

The starting point is located shortly after the entrance to Bad Heilbrunn, on the left before the Salza reservoir.

You start the hike on the right counterclockwise around the Eckwald. The trail leads in a southerly direction down to the shore of the reservoir. From there, you climb and quickly gain altitude via serpentines. The trail continues over rocky terrain and offers many a beautiful view of the reservoir below.

On this circular hike through the mixed forest, you will learn interesting facts about the different habitats of the flora and fauna found here at ten stations.

Equipment

Proper backpacking makes many things easier: pack heavy things first. The water bottle should always be within easy reach in a side pocket. All things that are often needed, such as sunglasses, camera or hiking map, belong on top. An emergency kit including blister plaster belongs in every backpack and a clothing according to the "onion system" is always recommended!
