On the WoodyWalk adventure trail there are exciting water games and discovery opportunities for children of all ages. Whether sitting on the back of the wooden oxen, balancing on the wooden snake or completing the Kneipp course, fun is guaranteed.
Starting at Kreuztal/Valcoroce at the Plose gondola lift mountain station, the WoodyWalk follows trail no. 17 southeast for a short way as far as a small church. From there, it turns east on to an easy, flat forest path before narrowing onto trail no. 17/A, which runs slightly uphill to the Rossalm mountain hut, just in time for a refreshment stop. The renovated Rossalm is one of the top Alpine huts in South Tyrol offering fantastic views of the Dolomites, great homemade food and its own playground.
Along the length of the WoodyWalk are several eye-catching info and game stations purposely created for family recreation. Even the names of the wooden games are telling: the Ploseblitz, the Glockensee, the Touchless Ground Track (Nicht-den-Boden-berühren-Weg), the Forest Telephone (Waldtelefon), the Climbing Tree with Ox Cart (Kletterbaum mit Ochsenkarren), the Peitler-throne, a Kneipp system, giant loungers and viking ship.
On the way back, follow the same route or take trail no. 14 along a slightly sloped forest path to return to the starting point.
