Alpine Orienteering Hike

Rocky gang – the adventure begins!
Hidden paths, cool climbing rocks, a mysterious forest, fascinating wild animals, stunning alpine plants – the area around the Niederhorn offers many interesting adventures. No one else knows the Niederhorn better than the four friends Rocky, Happy, Yummy and Lenny. Together, they are the Rocky-gang.
Their leader is Rocky, a strong brave ibex. When he climbs over the steep rocks, Happy is too scared to even watch him. Happy is not the bravest rabbit but he knows all the stories that are being told in the forest. If the Rocky-Gang is hungry, Yummy will take care of it. The shy deer is known as a gourmet and always finds the most delicious treats on the Niederhorn. Lenny the lynx is always up for a surprise: He is a master in sneaking up to his friends and loves to give them a scary moment.
Looking out for new paths and exploring the area around the Niederhorn is the favorite activity of Rocky and his friends. Every member of the Rocky-Gang has its own path with different levels of difficulty.

Information and maps as well as stamp cards are available at the mountain station on the Niederhorn.
Have you found all the posts? Then drop the complete control card in the urn at the Bärgrestaurant Vorsass or next to the Berghaus Niederhorn. At the end of the summer season, we will be giving away great prizes to all participants.

Routes

Rockys Path – Beginner

Rockys Path runs along the ridge way and will make you familiar with the signs of alpine orienteering. You will learn how to handle and use the map and follow the order of the stations. This path is perfect as a warm up preparing for all the other paths that are waiting for you on the Niederhorn. Be like the Rocky-Gang and be considerate of the area, as the Niederhorn is a nature reserve.

Yummys Path – Medium

If the Rocky-Gang is hungry, Yummy will take care of it. The shy deer is known as a gourmet and always finds the most delicious treats on the Niederhorn. The difficulty of Yummys Path is “medium”, perfect for young explorers that know how to get around in rougher terrain.

Lennys Path – Difficult

Lenny the lynx is always up for a surprise: He is a master in sneaking up to his friends and loves to give them a scary moment by jumping out of nowhere.
