This is a very nice way to spend the day in the Bavarian Forest. Both the Animal Enclosure and the Treetop Path are highlights when visiting the area. The Treetop Path is wheelchair accessible as are the paths of the enclosure.

Very STEEP HIKE! There are no flat resting sections on this hike at all. My family hiked this together. We hiked across the Grand Canyon last year so we are not faint of heart. Even my husband was surprised by the moderate label, especially the last rock climbing section. I am sure the views were amazing, but I did not attempt to get to the very top. We all hiked over to the Laber to enjoy the restaurant. Then my daughters and I took the gondola down to Oberammergau, while my husband and sons hiked back down to Ettal for the car.

This trail is not for the faint of heart as it challenges your endurance. It's rated moderate but I give it moderate/hard rating. There are awesome views of Lake Tegernsee and the Swiss alps. Even had some snow cover on the mountains to the left in June. There's definitely a payoff as you get close to to top as you pass cows out in a pasture and they have cowbells on which is music to your ears. The view at the top is stunning! Stopped in at the restaurant at the top for a celebratory beer and struedel! It took 1 1/2 hours to do the winter trail as there is a summer trail that's steeper but will cut off about 20 minutes. We enjoyed the ride down on the ski lift and got to witness a paraglider flying down the mountain we just hiked up. What a great way to connect with the area!

This is a great hike, but it's not a moderate one unless 700m of elevation change and a rather steep 15 min via ferrata climb at the end is moderate for you. Children must be experienced to enjoyably make this trek and a safety harness is probably a must for most children. The 360 view, though, is worth the 4+ hours roundtrip to complete this climb.
