Family circular hiking trail WoodyWalk
The WoodyWalk circular hiking trail on the Plose, Brixen's local mountain, is suitable for prams and offers hiking fun and nature experiences for the whole family. On the one hand, this is due to the fact that it is part of the Dolomites Panorama Trail and that most of the ascent is made comfortably by cable car. On the other hand, numerous surprises await along the way that are guaranteed to silence any grumbling.
On the WoodyWalk family circular trail, the grown-ups enjoy a fantastic view of the Dolomites, ranging from the striking Peitlerkofel to the Geisler peaks of Villnöss and the well-known mountain peaks of the southern Eisacktal valley. The dear little ones, on the other hand, can, among other things, try out the forest telephone, explore a climbing tree and the giant loungers or master the "don't touch the ground trail". Wonderful places to picnic and rest as well as a rustic alpine hut with a large playground and petting zoo make the family hiking day perfect.
