Nature Trail Eng Alm - Großer Ahornboden
Thematic route

The impressive mountain panorama and the natural monument Ahornboden provide the impressive surroundings of this trail, at the end of which the Alpine village Eng awaits, where regional specialities can be tasted and purchased.

Learn unique facts about the Karwendel, the sycamore maple as a species of character tree, the efforts to preserve the maple back, the alpine pastures and the cultivation of the Engalm once and now along the attractively designed and didactically excellently prepared theme trail.

2,218 maple trees populate the Great Maple Back. The sycamore maple (lat. Acer pseudoplatanus) is the most durable and largest native maple species. A wide variety of functions are attributed to it - the theme trail signs talk about cattle feed, maple juice, wood processing and even "sauerkraut".
