Marked as Latschenweg, the route is located between the Gasserhütte mountain hut and the Marzuner Schupfe alpine pasture. Here, prized oil from the mountain pine is produced in a special extraction process with an oven. On Mondays and Thursdays, visitors can observe how the pine oil is produced, along with information about the extraction process. The oil is used in curative applications with a number of different samples on display.
