Description

This less frequented yet very easy forest trail is not named ‘Eichhörnchenweg’ or ‘squirrel trail’ for nothing, for, in the shade of the forest in Sillianberg the local squirrels feel just great. From the starting point, Peisserhof, at the eastern end of Sillian, you hike via a slightly climbing gravel trail initially in an easterly direction, then after a hairpin bend, you bear west along the Sillianberg. Via the romantic trail through the dense coniferous forest, climbing then descending, passing glades which provide wonderful panoramic views to Sillian. Up there, at a rest place there is a glade which provides views across the entire valley, while you enjoy a picnic, you get a particularly great view of squirrels and other forest animals such as birds and roe deer. Follow the route to Arnbach. The Drau cycle trail is particularly good for the return leg of your journey.
