At this point, you'll see the first of the "tree beards", which are upside down spruces with carved faces. At the push of a button, these trees tell authentic stories by students from the primary schools in Oberperfuss. Some of the "tree beards" pose puzzles instead of telling stories. If you can solve the puzzles, you will be rewarded with magic & power stones when you get back to the bottom lift station. You'll also be given a booklet with all of the stories and puzzles to enjoy reading after your walk.
This trail is the ultimate family highlight. Hikers are accompanied by excited children's voices, storytelling and lovely walks from puzzle to puzzle. Along the way, a slide, a rest area and a barefoot trail provide even more variety. After a good one and a half kilometres, the trail comes to Stiglreith where children can jump around on the bouncy castle and play on the slide in front of the panoramic restaurant.
If the gondola is not running, you can drive to the starting point at Stiglreith car park, which is located at an altitude of 1,383 metres above sea level. Fees apply to park in the car park. It can be reached via the panoramic road that branches off to the right from Oberperfuss Berg. From that approach, the hike past the talking tree beards leads from the Stiglreith mountain lift station to the reservoir at Sulzstich and back along the road to the starting point.
