The ProjectRockfall in September 2011 destroyed several hundred metres of the Kaiserjoch Trail - an important natural connection between the Lech and Rosanna valleys for centuries. Leading to several DAV refuges and the start of various trekking tours, the region is famous for its species- rich meadows, ibex, marmots and golden eagles. Due to the risk of further rockfall, the trail must be moved across the valley, requiring specialist skills and equipment because of the difficult terrain. Regular maintenance will keep hikers on the path, protecting wildlife and habitats.
The construction of the new trail involves:
- remodelling part of the original trail
- building 2 bridges over a stream
- manual trail construction work using wood and gravel
- signposting the trail
