Zedlach Paradise Nature Trail

In a 500-year-old larch forest above Matrei in Osttirol there’s an interesting forest nature trail.

In the majestic beauty of the Venediger Group there's a protected centuries old larch forest with a small path which leads through it. It's the Zedlach Paradise Nature Trail (Waldlehrpfad Zedlacher Paradies) with its seven stations with information panels telling about the forest habitat and the origin of these old trees with their 7 metres thick trunks.

The 2 km long theme trail starts at the Jösn parking space in Matrei-Zedlach, and leads in about 45 minutes from 1,410 m up to 1,524 m a.s.l. across the Zedlach Paradise. Some giant wrought-iron sculptures, done by the local artist Erich Trost, are hidden beneath the mighty ancient trees: a 3 metres high bear which invites to climb, a woodpecker, and giant ants.

By the way: The summer months are the best season for a hike in the Zedlach Paradise. The first cold days approach already in October, what means that also the first snow is not far away.
