Details

Description

An idyllic path leads from the village through the forest to Maran and makes many a heart beat faster on the way. Squirrels and birds are quite trusting and will eat directly from your hand. You can observe and study these cute little animals over a distance of 1.7 km. Information boards with child-friendly riddles impart exciting knowledge about the forest dwellers. Towards the end of the trail, a spacious playground with barbecue area awaits visitors. An exciting puzzle booklet about the Squirrel Trail is available from Arosa Tourism.

Geheimtipp

The cute little animals take great pleasure in local nuts and seeds. If you keep very still, the animals will eat directly from your hand.

Sicherheitshinweis

Arosa strives to provide hikers with a well-developed and marked network of hiking trails. Please follow the rules and signposting. You will find further helpful tips under the hiking information.

Ausrüstung

The path leads almost exclusively through the forest. Even though the sun's rays occasionally break through gaps between the fir branches, it is still a bit cooler there than in the blazing sun. Of course, the hike is also a good bad-weather option.

Clothing suitable for the weather is recommended.

Directions
