Theme trail of the foundation "Urwaldreservat Bödmeren". Start at the jungle pavilion with an interesting exhibition as an introduction to the jungle trail. Inaugurated in July 2015 with the support of the ACCENTUS Foundation and the Lottery Fund of Canton Schwyz.In the jungle pavilion, a special brochure on the jungle trail can be obtained. It describes the 9 posts along the path on a special topic related to the forest.
From the pavilion (parking lot) at Unteren Roggenloch you reach the small road in a few minutes and follow it to Oberen Roggenloch. From here it goes in moderate gradient to the culmination point on the east side of the Roggenstöcklis. Here the path forks towards Twärenen (Silberen) and Wolfsbüel and on to Alp Tor. However, the theme trail leads us down the Roggenstöckli with its marmot plangg. We continue through an open forest zone with birch stands and a fantastic view of the Forstberg and Druesberg chain. You follow the path over impressive cart fields to Stägen and turn right at the turn-off to reach the road to Oberen Roggenloch again after a short time. At the signpost we turn left again and end the tour at the alpine restaurant Unteres Roggenloch.
