Short description

Beautiful and interesting alpine hike, though not too difficult.

Description

The hike takes you into a geologically and botanically very interesting side valley. As far as Melköde, you hike on a slightly uphill path through the Rüchewald, then you go on the mountain path up to the Schwarzwasserhütte and back again. The Schwarzwassertal is an important refuge for endangered animal species such as capercaillie, black grouse and hazel deer, sparrowhawk, stone grouse, golden eagle, eagle owl, dipper, adder, etc. and the abundance of plant species is also remarkable.
