The solar system – artfully depicted – can now be explored on a leisurely hike through the Terfner valley forest, the Forchat.
On the planet trail the planetary system was reconstructed to scale between Freistadt and the observatory Sandl.
The observatory in Sandl is one of the 14 stations of the Solar Flare Watch Program of NASA.
Scaled at 1:1 billion, this unique trail (longest on the West Coast, and the only one in Oregon) is a great way to enjoy the outdoors while exploring our solar system.
A promenade leads from Selva/Wolkenstein to St. Christina and on to Ortisei/St. Ulrich along the disused track of the former Val Gardena railway. Of course the walk can be undertaken in both directions and the path is kept well groomed in winter.
