Absolutely spectacular trail. Not long, kids friendly. The nature is amazing, in the simmer and in the winter. Birch all around, stony landscape, green scenes - beautiful place!

You can park for free right at the main entrance off the main road. If you drive to the trailhead you have to pay. Park right away. The walk is maybe 500m
