The trail starts from the parking lot of Nieder-Moos. The trail runs counter-clockwise around the lake Nieder-Mooser. After the hike, it is a pleasure to enjoy the beautiful beach with sunbathing area in the camp for a little relaxation and refreshment.

The tour is shaded by numerous trees and ensembles of reeds that always offer new, interesting perspectives of the landscape of the pond.

Following the path we enter the Rothenbach Forest and pass through a small hill that offers a beautiful view of Crainfeld. Now we reach the first rest area, the barbecue hut above Crainfeld.

We return to the forest, and we get to the nature reserve Rothenbach. The rustling of leaves and the natural silence, far from any civilization, accompany us along the bank. Many migratory birds and rare species of birds stop here and it's easy admire them.

Another attraction of the tour is the Mooser and its beautiful meadows that are protected. You can see rare species of birds like the kingfisher and the black stork. Dragonflies and butterflies are among the inhabitants of the territory. In the middle of the lake, on a small island, there is a large tree, where lives a colony of cormorants.

The bar near invites you to refresh yourself before getting back on the way to the starting point.
